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!
Peanut Butter Packed Pancake!
Pancake = 4 PPV
Pancake with Toppings = 6 PPV
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)
1/2 Banana, Sliced
1 T. Better n’ Peanut Butter (Or nut butter of your choice!)
1 tsp Honey
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!
Nice and Thick!
