That being said, I've been very into breakfast lately. Whether it's eggs and bacon, a smoothie, fresh fruit... you name it, I've probably made it within the past month. But up until yesterday, I didn't exactly think BANANA PANCAKES would make my list of "healthy and delicious breakfast recipes" while we're on this Whole Food and Clean Eating Challenge. I was wrong.
My best friend and soon to be Maid of Honor's name is Laurel. She'ssss pretty fabulous. She's this teeny tiny little nugget who loves working out and eating healthy... the best kind of best friend to have while on this clean eating challenge, right?! I know. So Laurel and I have constantly been bouncing recipes off of each other for the past month, and well, for the past 15 years for that matter. But yesterday she told me I hadddd to try these new banana pancakes. I immediately reminded her, "girl... I can't have anything with flour in it, how could I eat pancakes?" Then she sent me the recipe. I was baffled! "How do you get pancakes from these 4 simple ingredients?!?" She pretty much told me to shut up and try it, so I did. And boyyyyy were they delicious.
SO! Here is the recipe for GRAIN/WHEAT/FLOUR/SUGAR FREE banana pancakes, and while you're reading and/or making these for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner (bc you'll love them enough to make them for every single meal), please enjoy Jack Johnson's song, "Banana Pancakes" to get you in the mood (By Clicking Here)
Here is what you'll need:
Here are the ingredients:

Step 1) Get out all of the ingredients (this is a veryyyy easy step, I mean, it's 4 different things).
Step 5) Let skillet get HOT on the stove before adding batter. Spray with cooking spray.
Step 7) Transfer pancake to your plate, add your desired toppings, and indulge! (ok so my transfer from skillet to plate wasn't as graceful as my flip in the pan while cooking...)
As you can see from the photo below, I obviously hated it.
To quote a text from Laurel this morning, "bananas are like a magical fruit" ... and she's so right. Yall, you can make pretty much anyyything form bananas! Next week I'll be posting an amaazzzzzinnngggg ice cream recipe that is literally TWO ingredients, one of which is... can you guess it? YEP. Bananas.
But until then, try these 4 ingredient delicious guilt free banana pancakes and thank me (actually, thank Laurel) after you try them bc they'll become your new breakfast go-to recipe!
