Easy 7-Ingredient Flourless Banana Pancakes

Easy Banana oat toaster pancakes

Happy Monday everyone!!!

(Said no one ever)

Except with these pancakes in your belly it very much will be a happy Monday! These pancakes are one of my favorite go-to recipes during weeks where I know I’ll  be super busy and will need quick breakfast options becauseeeeee what you can do is whip up a big batch of these guys on Sunday and throw ’em in the fridge and then whenever you want one (or one fat stack) you just throw ’em in the toaster and viola! Instant mouthwatering-ly tasty healthy pancakes! No more need for frozen toaster pancakes or waffles that are full of junk ingredients like sugars and preservatives. You really can’t beat that.

ALSO. These sneaky little devils have all the health benefits of any breakfast you could ever dream up.

  1. You’ve got your oats in there which are a whole grain, healthy source of carbs that are rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein, and so many other nutrients AKA they are going to give you loads of sustainable energy all day long (and also keep you feeling fuller longer so you don’t have to resort to a mid-morning snack).
  2.  You’ve got your bananas which contain loads of potassium AKA a powerful electrolyte which helps maintain the balance between acids and bases in the body and is KEY in maintaining healthy muscles and bones as well as fighting fatigue and regulating your blood pressure.
  3. Egg whites. Egg whites are just incredible. They contain TONS of protein while being super low in calories, fat, and cholesterol PLUS they’re loaded with a bajillion crucial vitamins and minerals essential to healthy living.
  4. Last but not least, we’ve got some cinnamon in there. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices because besides adding a unique sweet-spicy flavor to whatever you put it in, it’s packed with antioxidants which help fight off damage caused by free radicals and it’s great for fighting inflammation.

So basically if you want the easiest, healthiest, tastiest breakfast ever that lasts you all week, then this is the recipe for you. I GOTCHU. Enjoy 🙂

Fluffy Low Carb Collagen Banana Pancakes

fluffy low carb collagen banana pancakes 3

Yesterday I realized that I hadn’t been eating nearly enough pancakes lately. I’ve been on such a scrambled egg kick these past couple of months that I had completely forgotten about one of my favorite breakfast foods of all time!

So after running 4.5 miles yesterday (currently training for a 10k for some unknown reason because I am a terrible runner), I thought to myself “GIRL. You just killed it. Your body is starving. You go get dem pancaakkkeeesssss!!!” But after a nice training session like that, I DEF wasn’t going to go negate all my hard work by putting some unhealthy pancakes in this bod. No no no. I have the healthy food tools in my tool belt and I used those tools to make some mighty delicious and well-deserved fluffy banana pancakes. And yes, this recipe makes 6 pancakes. And yes, I did eat them all myself. Normally, however, I would recommend splitting them with another person because i was FULL. Like, I looked 6 months pregnant full.

But anyways. You guys. It’s not even hard to make healthier pancakes, everyone should be doing it! These guys were so fluffy, so tasty, and those warm banana chunks in every bite!?!? HOLY BISCUITS SO GOOD!!! And if you break down this recipe to the nitty gritty (which isn’t hard to do because it’s made of all-natural whole foods, no chemicals or preservatives here nu-uh hunny), you see that all you’re basically eating here is a little oatmeal, some eggs, and a banana. Add in some collagen to keep your cells happy and top that with some fresh fruit and hemp hearts and you have yourself one satisfying and nutritious breakfast! And it’s disguised as delicious pancakes. What could be better?

Also, a fun little tip for you guys, you can make a ton of these babies and freeze them, then whenever you feel like some pancakes you can pop some in the toaster and BOOM instant healthy pancakes.

So get going! In just a couple of minutes you could be eating pancakes! What are you waiting for!?

  • Difficulty: easy

Ingredients

  • ½ cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 large organic free-range eggs

  • ½ – 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
  • Maple syrup to drizzle on top

Directions

  1. Pre-heat a non-stick skillet or griddle on medium-low heat.
  2. Add all dry ingredients (oat flour, collagen peptides, baking powder, cinnamon, salt) to a blender and pulse until well combined.
  3. Add the banana and eggs and blend until just combined. I like to just pulse the batter so there’s still chunks of banana at the end.
  4. Pour about ¼ cup of the batter onto the skillet or griddle and repeat until all the batter is used.
  5. Once the tops of your pancakes begin to be covered in bubbles, flip them over and cook for another 1-2 minutes until they are thoroughly cooked.

The Perfect Protein Pancake Pizza

Pancake pizza

Okay guys, I know you all know Mother’s Day is tomorrow and I know you’re all totally on top of things and already have the best day lined up for all those beautiful, amazing, wonderful mommas out there. BUUUUUTTTTT, just in case you don’t have anything prepared, I’ve gotcha covered.

So all the moms out there deserve the world, right? Without our precious momma bears, we would not be here today so they deserve to be pampered and spoiled all day long this Mother’s Day (and every day tbh because they da bomb and they just deserve it). SO what could be more perfect for spoiling mom than combining two of the greatest foods of all time and bringing it to her in bed? Nothing. Nothing could be a better start to her day I’ll letcha know right now.

So yeah, in case you haven’t gotten the hint by now from the title of this post, YES I have done it. I combined pancakes and pizza. And oh baby, what a combo. Seriously, it’s a breakfast pizza people! All your favorite toppings loaded onto a giant warm, fluffy, protein-packed pancake and sliced up into perfect little portions ready to dip in syrup (if you’d like) and share with the whole fam.

GENNNIUSSSSSSS.

And this isn’t your average pancake, either. It’s a super pancake. Your average pancakes are full of processed white flour, sugar, milk, and who knows what else to try to entice you to eat them (which I get it, they’re so tasty), but this guy is just as tasty (IF NOT TASTIER) as those average garbage-filled pancakes and IS GOOD FOR YOU!!! Duh. Gotta get those nutrients for you and momma so she can live a long healthy life too!

I’m talking oats, eggs, cinnamon, coconut oil, and collagen peptides. So what does that mean for you? Fiber, protein, anti-inflammatory properties, healthy fats, and skin health (and more, more, more)! All that from a pancake! And we haven’t even gotten to the toppings yet. Is this even real life? Yes. Yes it is.

So take all that yummy nutritious goodness and load it up with your favorite toppings (might I recommend peanut butter, bananas, and some bluebs *drool*) and bring it to yo momma! Easy as (pizza) pie. Enjoy, and happy mother’s day to all you wonderful momma bears out there! You da real MVPs!

PS I just wanted to give a special shoutout to my very own momma bear Cath for being the best, most wonderful, amazing, caring, kind, giving human being alive. Seriously, (cuz I know you’re reading this right now) I don’t know how you do it. Thanks for teaching me everything I know, I wouldn’t be making any of this delicious food without you!

Protein Pancake Pizza

  • Servings: 6 slices
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 2 organic free-range eggs
  • ¼ cup Silk Unsweetened Original Cashew Milk
  • 1 Tbsp melted virgin coconut oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp Collagen Peptides
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • Toppings!! I used: natural peanut butter, natural raspberry jam, fresh strawberries, bananas, blueberries, pears, and raspberries, chia seeds, maple syrup, unsweetened shredded coconut, lactose-free vanilla yogurt, peanuts, and dark chocolate chips.
  •  

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat. If using a skillet, I would melt a little coconut oil in the pan to keep your pancake from sticking when you pour it in.
  2. Combine all ingredients (besides toppings) in a blender and blend until everything is thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour into your pan and allow to cook until it’s bubbly and firm around the edges (about 1-2 minutes) and then flip and cook for the same amount of time on the other side.
  4. Remove to a plate and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before topping. Since I wanted to make each slice with a different topping, I sliced mine first and then topped, however if you’re going to make the whole pancake pizza with the same toppings I would recommend topping it and then slicing. Enjoy!

Green(ish) St. Patty’s Day Matcha Pancakes

St pattys day matcha pancakes 1

Fun fact: I’m a ridiculous holiday person. Like, I consistently make a fool out of myself to celebrate most holidays. HOWEVER, St. Patrick’s day has never really been my thang. I’m not sure why, it just never really resonated with me I guess. Maybe because I’m not a big drinker. But this year, I’ve decided to switch things up.

There is one thing I’ve always had in common with St. Patrick’s day, and that is a love for the color green. The best of all the colors, if you ask me (Bailey you weirdo). So what’s a healthy foodie who loves the color green to do on St. Patrick’s day to celebrate?

MAKE GREEN PANCAKES OF COURSE! (Well, they have a green-ish tint.)

Brilliant!!!! But how? What could I use to naturally color pancakes green?

Ahh yes, matcha. How convenient that I just got into the delicious green drink so I have some matcha powder on hand. Let me give you a lil matcha backstory so you can begin your matcha obsession as well.

Matcha is actually the powdered version of green tea leaves, so when you drink matcha (or consume the powder in other ways, like in pancakes) you are actually consuming the entire tea leaf as opposed to when you drink regular green tea where you’re just consuming the leaf-infused water. So why’s that matter? WELL, let me tell you.

When you discard the green tea leaves, you’re in turn discarding tons of antioxidants that you could be drinking in! Matcha is FULL of like a bajillion antioxidants to help the body fight aging and chronic diseases. One particular antioxidant which is found in matcha is EGCG, which stimulates thermogenesis (when fat in the body is burned to produce energy). OKAY score.

But while you may be convinced to try matcha already at this point, there’s still so much more to gain from it! Matcha also:

  • is a natural detoxifying agent
  • relaxes the mind and body
  • contains chlorophyll and vitamins
  • boosts your mood and concentration

SO, if you weren’t convinced before, I bet I’ve got you to hop on the matcha train now!!! And if not, you probably shouldn’t be following my blog because you clearly don’t care about your body (ooh, harsh). But anyways, I’ve gotten off topic.

GREEN PANCAKES PEOPLE.

And they’re healthy!!! Time to get festive and put fun colorful nutrients in yo body instead of fun colorful beer! Or, at least before you put the fun colorful beer in. Happy St. Patty’s Day, my peeps.

Fluffy Chocolate Peanut Butter Kodiak Cake Pancakes

PB choc Kodiak Cakes 2

Nothing helps beat the Monday blues quite like pancakes do, amiright or am I right? Maybe even pancakes for dinner after a long, tiresome, snow-filled Monday. YES TO ALL THE PANCAKES AT ALL TIMES!!!! I honestly think if I were to have to choose 1 thing to eat for every meal for the rest of my life, it would have to be pancakes. I constantly crave them, and can you blame me? Who couldn’t love a towering stack of warm, fluffy, deliciousness PLUS all the toppings possibilities!? Just, just wow. I have no words. My love is indescribable. (And now I have writer’s block because I’m just daydreaming about pancakes, which apparently I have no words for).

Mmmmmm… *still thinking about pancakes*

OKAY. Snap out of it Bailey. Gotta share the deliciousness.

This recipe is near-and-dear to my heart because, well, it’s super healthy and packed with protein, but it’s made using Kodiak Power Cakes mix which is one of my all-time favorite pancake mixes! And no, this is not an ad, I have no affiliation with the Kodiak company (as much as I wish i did because then I could die a happy woman), I just have a tongue with taste buds that are huge fans of the stuff. Now I love Kodiak Cakes with a burning passion for two reasons (not including how unbelievably mouth-wateringly tasty it is).

Reason number 1: I remember it like it was yesterday. It was my first time shopping alone at Costco since I moved away from home for University. I thought to myself, “YES, finally, I can buy whatever I want, no parents here, just me and my food.” Let it be known that I should not have been shopping at Costco as a first year university student only looking to feed/supply for herself while living in a dorm room with a minuscule excuse for a fridge and negative storage space. Needless to say, I went a little crazy. I was well stocked for the entire year. One of the many, many items I purchased, none other than a giant box of Kodiak Power Cakes Mix, of course! This mix quickly become the only pancake mix I would eat because it tastes so freakin’ good and it was actually healthy?! Come on, how is that even possible? But it helped me get through many a stressful times during my first year of school and for that, I am forever grateful.

Reason number 2: it has no crazy additives! I actually understand every single one of the ingredients listed on the box and could literally remake it with things I currently have in my kitchen. Usually I steer clear from store-bought mixes due to additives that companies put in to make their products taste better or last longer, but not my good friends (JK I know none of them) over at Kodiak Cakes! Alllll good stuff, all the time. That’s what I’m talking about.

So now let’s get to talking about this recipe. For a while I was just making Kodiak Cakes from the recipe listed on the box, but as I got older (and was no longer confined to a dorm room), I began some experimentation. This is one of the many recipes I now crave constantly, so I thought I’d share it with you all. It’s dairy and sugar free (say whaaaaa?) and tastes like dessert for breakfast. I’ve actually made this exact recipe for a healthy dessert before, too so it could also be breakfast for dessert. You’ve got some protein in there, healthy fats, anddddd I’ve snuck in some sweet potato for added texture and health benefits. So on top of everything else you’re going to get some fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C and manganese AND some nice fluffy pancakes! Sound like a deal?

Now it’s time to cure the Monday blues! Go get yo pancake onnnnnnn my peeps.
