Two Ingredient Pancakes (All you need is a banana & an egg) 

No flour, no sugar & I repeat, kids LOVE this recipe

There really isn't much to say about what the ingredients are and how to do this as its just that simple. Take a banana (riper the better), mash it up with a fork and stir in an egg. Heat up a fry pan (not too hot) and add a little pam or oil and pour in 1/4 cup size of the batter. Be patient, these take longer than regular pancakes. They are a tad tricky to "flip" but a little practice and you will be a master in no time. 

Really? Are you getting lazy Erinn? Nope, but the fact that they are around 175 calories for the whole serving or say 60 calories per pancake makes me happy and of course, avoiding the ol' wheat belly is another added bonus. 

We shared this recipe at work and have had HUGE success with the moms with young kids. Many alternatives have also been made and discussed at length. Here is the ever growing list of different things to add to the pancakes, add your comments if you have any other good combinations that you have tried:
  • Cinnamon (I am told this is a must)
  • PB2 - I added on top, but others are adding right into the recipe
  • Blueberries
  • Protein powder
  • Oatmeal (a coworkers said it made them sturdier)
  • Flax seed
  • Mint (yep, one coworker was adamant that mint made them delicious)

This was my first attempt at the pancakes and I topped with a runny PB2 combination.
They might not look that great but it was amazing and kept me full till lunch.
