Simple Banana Pancakes

Lately, I love Wednesdays. I get to work from home, on my own business, and do whatever I want. Mornings can be a little slower and I actually have time to sit down for a meal. Mornings are also my most productive time of day so I don't like wasting time spending too long making big breakfasts. Lately, my Wednesday (favorite) morning routine consists of eating breakfast, checking email and getting in a solid hour or 2 of work before going to my favorite Body Pump gym class. It feels way more relaxed and productive than rushing out the door, with my mason jar of oatmeal in hand.


Lately, these simple banana pancakes have been one of my Wednesday morning go-tos. They take just a few minutes longer than my usual oatmeal, but are just as easy and delicious. They're a great source of protein and fiber and keep me full and satisfied through my morning. (I usually top them with peanut butter too - I'm addicted.)


Start by mashing your banana, then mix in the egg with a fork. Add a pinch of oats and a dash of cinnamon. Mix.

Scoop onto your skillet. Let them cook almost all the way through- flipping too early will be messy.

I should probably add chocolate chips next time, huh?

1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

 

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.

2. Heat a nonstick pan over med-low heat.

3. Spoon mixture onto the skillet in 3 small pancake shapes. (I make them small, they're easier to flip.)

5. Remove from skillet when eggs are cooked through.

 

Top with peanut butter, maple syrup, or a side of fruit. Enjoy
