The Everyday Pancake {3 ingredients!}

I fully believe that the food we eat every day should feel special. Not just on weekends, or when we go out to eat… but every single day.

When we make our food feel special every day, we tend to go overboard less when there are special foods around us.

I spent years restricting myself, eating foods that were healthy and would help me control my weight, but were void of pleasure and fun. So, when I was around “fun” and “special” foods at an event or holiday, I would binge.

Now, I let food feel fun every single day, even on a rainy Wednesday like today! It feels so much better and helps me keep my relationship with food feeling fun and consistent. {for more support on this, check out my 21 Day Intuitive Eating Challenge.}

Ok, let’s discuss P A N C A K E S ! ! 

I love pancakes, but to be honest, they always feel like a giant ball of dough in my stomach afterward. They’re one of those foods that I love, but doesn’t leave me feeling my best. Can you relate?

They also feel time consuming, and when I am itching to start my day, taking forever to make pancakes just doesn’t sound appealing.

So, I wanted to make pancakes that felt good in body + were also an “everyday pancake”, one that felt just as easy to make as oatmeal or some peanut butter toast.

And here they are…

These are not your fluffiest, most indulgent pancakes.

But they are:

  • simple
  • very nutritious and healthy (gluten-free, dairy-free)
  • a cinch to make, requiring just one bowl and one fork
  • delicious
  • cheap!!

So here’s how I make them. Have you heard of the 2-ingredient pancake? If you search this on the google, you’ll find them. It’s a concept that was circulating years ago – pancakes with just eggs and banana. No flour.

I based my pancake experimenting off of this recipe, and just spruced it up a bit based on how I liked my pancakes.

You essentially mash a banana in a bowl, add two eggs, a handful of oats, a dash of baking powder and cinnamon…. and that’s IT. YA. It’s that easy.

Of course, you then want to top them with peanut butter on each and every layer, with a bit of maple syrup on the side. But honestly, I hardly ever use my maple; the pancakes are so good on their own.

They taste kind of like a mix between banana bread, pancakes and a crepe. That may sound very strange to you, but I urge you to try these.

Try them on a boring Tuesday. Or Spruce up your Thursday morning to add a little pep in your step as the week drags on. Wake up 5 minutes earlier to throw these together, and make your morning feel special. You deserve it.

The Everyday Pancake (3 ingredients)

Serves 1; makes about 4 -5 pancakes, depending on size

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • dash of cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Mash a banana with a fork at the bottom of a bowl
  2. Crack the two eggs over the banana. Whisk to combine (just using a fork is fine)
  3. Throw in the oats, baking powder and cinnamon; stir to combine
  4. Heat a skillet with a bit of butter or ghee
  5. Pour batter into pan, shaping whatever size pancakes you like
  6. After a couple of minutes, you’ll see the pancakes begin to bubble; flip
  7. After a couple of minutes on the other side, remove
  8. Dress up your pancakes with nut butter (on every layer if you ask me!), maple syrup, fruit, etc.

Enjoy this pancake. Any day, every day. xx
