Typically, I don’t share the recipes I make, choosing instead to link to the recipe or to the cookbook on Amazon. I like people to rewarded for their creative endeavors, even if those endeavors are simply compiling a collection of recipes. That said, the source of the pancake recipe is a book I got through work for healthy meals and is not commercially available, so here we go:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
- 1 cup low or nonfat milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Typical assembly instructions apply: combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet in another (bananas are wet, in this case). Mix the wet into the dry, cook on a griddle or in a hot skillet. These don’t make the sweetest, fluffiest pancakes, but a serving of 2 cakes contains about 20% of your daily recommended allowance of fiber, so your guts will likely thank you!
The eggs are even easier to make:
- 2 large eggs
- Too much butter
- Some cheese
- Veggies, maybe. Like, I dunno, peppers?
- Are mushrooms veggies? Probably?
- Shoot, I’m out of ham
Try to make an omelet. Fail. Have scrambled eggs instead.
