Pancakes? Healthy? Super low calorie? Whaaaaaat?? Gimme gimme. Guys, if you didn’t know already, I’m a HUGE sucker for anything sweet, like honestly…I know that everyone talks about having a “sweet tooth” but I’m convinced that I have more than that. We’re talking sweet bottom row of teeth, maybe even some at the top too. Chocolates? Mine. Candy? Mine. Cheesecake? NOM. Speaking of cheesecake, I’m one to openly admit that I may have fallen subject to eating a giant slice of leftover Cheesecake Factory cheesecake for breakfast once or twice. I know, I know, I’m awful!! But I’m constantly working out ways that I can get my morning sweet fix in a healthier way.
I think I definitely hit the jackpot with this one. Skinny Banana Blueberry Pancakes …. slurrrrrrp.
These pancakes are naturally sweetened with banana so there are no worries about any added refined sugars. What’s even better? They’re super duper easy to make. I’m talking practically effortless. No mixer needed, no large bowl, no fancy schmancy pancake pourer gadget thingy. Nope. Guys, we’re keeping it as simple as can be because this is a morning meal and let’s face it, every minute counts when you’re ravenous after a sleep coma and have pancakes on your mind.
Banana, oats, egg whites, Greek yog, chia seeds, blender, GO.
Just pour onto a nonstick skillet straight from the blender spout and throw a few blueberries on top. Ta-da. Told you it was easy.
The hard part comes when you have to resist nose diving into the plate mid-photo sesh. Now that takes some serious self control which I’m giving myself a huge pat on the back for. 🙂
One of the great things about pancakes in general is that there are endless possibilities for what you can use as toppings. Let your imagination wander my friends. For these, I kept it relatively close to home: a few sliced bananas, a dollop of Greek yogurt and my all time fav Low Calorie Peanut Butter Topping.
