Early this morning, I came across a recipe for pancakes that had just three ingredients: banana, oats, and eggs. Whaaaaaaaaatttt you can do that?! Make pancakes with just bananas, oats, and eggs?! Noooo wayyy!!
Yes way. I know. Mind. BLOWN. So I whirred together a batch this morning. It took all of 10 minutes from whir to belly. I can’t say they’re my favorite, but they grew on me, sort of like how I learned to appreciate whole grain bread vs. white bread. There’s definitely a lot more texture in it, thanks to the oats. The sweetness from the bananas was subtle, so I hit it with some maple syrup afterward, which probably cut the health factor significantly. I have to say, though, I’m feeling pretty good about myself. Those are three ingredients I don’t feel guilty about at all, and would feel downright awesome about feeding my kids for breakfast someday.
What an easy way to get a balanced diet into my belly for a nutritious way to start the day! Overall, I think this is one to keep in my pocket for future breakfasts when I’m feeling extra crunchy.
