Healthyass Blueberry Pancake

IMG_2857

One time I was like, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a sweet counterpart to the savory omelet?” I ruminated on it for days minutes and then realized that’s pretty much what we here in the grand US of A call a pancake. Perhaps you’re curious about the singularity of the cake in question. Who eats just one pancake anyway? You will, sassypants. I suppose you could split the batter into two or three babycakes, but I prefer one fat monster roughly the size of a large dinner plate, slathered in peanut butter, downed with coffee. Tomato, tomahto… healthyass pancake.

Healthyass Blueberry Pancake

I eat some variation of this pancake probably 4 out of 7 days a week. It’s quick, easy, (arguably) healthyass and I’m willing to bet you have most of the ingredients stocked at all times. You can use any fruit you want–I used blueberries here, but I’ve also used apples, strawberries and chocolate chips (Note: not a fruit). As far as dietary restrictions go, you can use gluten-free flour and vegans can sub the egg whites for two flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed soaked in 6 tablespoons warm water). [This was first posted on my old blog back in March. For the original, click here.]

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons flour (rice flour, oat flour, any flour)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup fruit of choice (blueberries, strawberries, apples, etc.)

Instructions

  1. Mix together the mashed banana, egg whites and vanilla extract
  2. Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine
  3. Stir in your fruit
  4. Warm a skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking oil (I like coconut oil spray)
  5. Pour batter in and cooke for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned
