Peanut Butter Packed Pancake!

I do love a pancake for breakfast (or any meal, really). Since I’ve been reading blogs and looking on Pinterest for recipes, I’ve discovered all sorts of different ways to make an easy, healthy, low point pancake. You really can’t mess these up either. It’s Banana’s and Eggs, just in a bunch of different combinations with lots of yummy additions to the banana’s and eggs! I made one the other day called a Three Ingredient Pancake! That one was just as tasty as this one, but that was several little thin pancakes, and this is one, big nice and thick pancake!

Ingredients

1/4 Dry Oats

3 Egg Whites

1/2 Ripe Banana, mashed

2 T. PB2 Powder

1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Packet Truvia (optional)

Toppings

1/2 Banana, Sliced

1 T. Better n’ Peanut Butter (Or nut butter of your choice!)

1 tsp Honey

Directions

Add all ingredients to a blender. (You can mix really well with a fork or a whisk too!)

Pulse just a few times until well blended, but don’t over blend. I have recently discovered this works much better than whisking with a fork in a bowl.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium low heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter onto heated skillet and cook for about 3 minutes.

I have a very large spatula (this pancake is 6-7 inches in diameter!!) that made this easy to flip. I think blending the batter made it all stick together well on the skillet! Cook for about an additional 2 minutes.

Top with the other half of the Banana, 1 T. Better n’ Peanut Butter and 1 tsp of honey!

    I never really used to eat eggs much, but I do now because of the protein. They do seem to keep me full. I eat a lot of egg whites, not a lot of whole eggs? I’m not sure if that makes a difference or not. I know some folks stomach’s just don’t seem to like eggs. And honestly, I’ve always been gassy. I claim I get it from my father. I blame him for my legs too. Gas and thick legs. Thanks Dad! 🙂

    I’m glad you are enjoying the blog. Thanks for reading!

  4. I think I stumbled on your blog via Pinterest. I’m glad that I did. II really enjoy it. My question is how does your stomach handle eggs? I’ve had to cut out eggs because they really did a number on my stomach not to mention the gas. I miss eating eggs though.
