I have been seeing clean eating pancakes all over Pinterest but a lot of the recipes are pretty complex- by that I mean too much to do before I finish my coffee. But THIS recipe is even more simple than making a breakfast smoothie and only needs things that I already have around the house. Plus they have a banana taste- banana pancakes! Yes please!
Servings: 2 (3 pancakes each)
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
- 4 egg whites ($.50)
- 1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats ($.10)
- 1 banana ($.10)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine all the ingredients in a blender (I use this one from Amazon). Pour 1/4 cup of the mix onto a non-stick frying pan and cook 2 minutes on each side. Repeat for the other pancakes (PS I cooked one pancake at a time in a little frying pan and then remembered we actually have a griddle...like I said, everything is too much before coffee).
Top with fruit and natural maple syrup and enjoy!
|Literally the only 4 ingredients. Amazingness.|
P.S.S. Anyone else have an amazing weekend? Andi and I lived it up in the 60 degree weather:
Had a fun St. Paddy's celebration in Dupont involving a leprachaun on a stripper pole:
Made some delicious new red bean burgers (recipe coming soon!):
And some friends came out to the Mall with us to help with our Save the Date Project ("project" meaning "finding ways to do free save the dates") for our Washington, DC wedding (I drag my friends along for this instead of paying someone a zillion dollars- thanks Anna and Kyle!):
|Nothing says romance like construction cranes on the mall|
|Yep I'm marrying someone who insists on wearing a crown.|
|This is my favorite (I'm vetoing the crown)|

And while I'm not one to complain about a work-from-home day or complain after a beautiful weekend, this is how I'm feeling about the 8" of snow today:
