Sunday morning after a long run all I wanted was something delicious & warm like a nice fluffy pancake! But of course the old fashioned Bisquick pancakes aren't the healthiest or part of my "Endo Therapy Diet" so I decided to change it up a bit & make a healthy version of one of my favorite breakfast dishes! Insert Banana Oatmeal Pancakes!
This recipe is so easy & healthy!
With 5 ingredients & only 15 minutes you can be eating these! (I'm getting hungry just looking at the picture and reliving it!)
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup uncooked oats, 2 chopped bananas, 1/2 cup of organic quinoa flour, 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of baking powder
Readdyyyy...Cook! 1. In a blender, puree the almond milk & oats until smooth. Add bananas, flour, pinch of kosher salt & baking powder. Puree a few seconds more. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. 2. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray, then scoop the batter to make 1/4 cup pancakes. Cook the pancakes until air bubbles appear, just like the old fashion pancakes, about 5 minutes. Flip & cook another 5 minutes.
That's it! You can add more bananas, berries or syrup to top 'em off!
2 pancakes are only 235 calories! They have 8g of protein & 5g of fiber! They keep me full all morning!
Talk about a delish way to start your day!!
Tip - make a few extra, freeze them 2 in a bag, and there's your breakfast to go!
