Who doesn’t love a hearty breakfast? There’s a reason brunch is so popular, and it’s not just the bottomless mimosas. My favorite brunch food is a pancakes, with a close second of french toast and close third of waffles. Pancakes are loaded with white flour and drenched in syrup, making them an unhealthy way to start your day. This is why I decided to search for a healthier pancake recipe so that I can enjoy my favorite breakfast food without regretting it after. I’m happy to say, that after much trial and error, I’ve found what I consider a delicious and healthy pancake recipe!
- One banana
- One Scoop of vanilla protein powder (my favorite is Dynamize Elite Grourmet French Vanilla)
- One packet of maple brown sugar oatmeal
- Two eggs
- One cup of Almond milk
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
*Depending on the size of your eggs and banana, you may need to slightly alter the recipe to achieve the batter consistency you’re after.*
Mix it all together and pour into a pan! I like to use pure butter instead of oil, keep an eye out for healthier butters (they do exist!). I also like to make this meal with Trader Joe’s Uncured Turkey Bacon and 100% Pure Maple Syrup (that only has one ingredient!). These healthier alternatives make this tasty meal better for you! I hope this recipe is what you’re looking for. If you have any other breakfast suggestions, I’d love to read them below!
