I make these for breakfast quite frequently as I try to keep my diet clean. I like adding a pinch of salt (maybe even a little extra) because the salt seems to bring out the natural sweetness provided from the banana. This is great served with maple syrup, butter, honey or a side of fruit.
If you're feeling naughty, I recommend taking some dark chocolate and making this a chocolate-chip banana-pancake recipe. Chopped up strawberries also go well with this (I mean, obviously. Banana + strawberry = bliss -- I think some yogurt company came up with this formula, not too sure!)
- 1 1/2 Ripe Bananas
- 2 Eggs
- 1/8 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 2 Pinches of salt
Your materials and ingredients:
Follow instructions for healthy pancake bliss:
- Crack eggs and whisk in small bowl. Add a pinch of salt and whisk in.
- Add your banana to an alternative bowl that is larger and lightly mash. You can mash with either a potato masher or a fork. Do not put this in a blender or food processor- this will make the banana mixture too thin. Also do not over-mash. You want to see (and taste!!) chunks of banana
- Add the egg mixture and 1/8 tsp of baking soda to the bananas.
- Turn stove on medium to low heat, lightly coat pan in olive oil (as you would for cooking an egg) and cook pancakes. You should pour about 2-3 Tbsp of the pancake mixture per pancake. Cook for about a minute on each side to allow for the baking soda to activate. Pancakes should be a dark golden-brown color. They should also appear fluffy.
- This will yield about 6-8 mini pancakes. Serve with butter and maple syrup- but, they're even good plain. (A little organic honey on top is awesome too!)

Is baking powder gluten free?
The Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) considers baking soda and baking powder to be gluten free. However, some brands MAY contain gluten. So, unless you know your brand of baking powder for sure, and you need these pancakes to be gluten-free, please opt out of using baking powder. The pancakes will still turn out very nicely.
You can even try making your own gluten-free baking powder.
