“Can’t you see that it’s just raining?
Ain’t no need to go outside…
But, baby, you hardly even notice
When I try to show you this
Song is meant to keep you
From doing what you’re supposed to.
Waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
Make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now”
Every time I hear this it just makes me crave those slow weekend mornings that you just relax, sip your coffee, and eat those banana pancakes. It sounds like such a perfect little morning.
Well, last week there was a LARGE thunderstorm that came through the Boston area in the morning and it seemed to be begging just that banana pancake morning. You don’t have to ask me twice!
I decided to try out a little variation some banana protein pancakes that I found earlier in the week. The BEST thing about these pancakes is they have NO FLOUR and you really don’t miss it.
|1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats||1/2 Banana|
|1/4 Cup Non-Fat Cottage Cheese||1 Egg|
|1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon|
1. Place all of the ingredients in a a bowl and blend with an immersion blender. You want the batter to be completely smooth.
2. Heat up a skillet to low-medium heat and place the batter on the skillet. This will make about 2 medium sized pancakes. Flip the pancake when it starts to bubble and the edges look cooked. These will cook faster than normal pancakes so keep the temperature low.
I topped mine with the other half of the banana and some agave. It was delicious and I don’t know that I would go back to putting flour in my pancakes. To be honest, these fill you up but don’t sit as heavy as normal pancakes. A winner!!
This leaves me with so many other ideas for a ‘healthy’ pancake that doesn’t include any flour.
Have you every completely re-done a favorite and found it to be just as good??
