This past weekend I was flipping through the stack of magazines in my apartment to see if anything catches my eye before I tossed them into the recycling bin.
In the September 2014 issue of Men’s Fitness, I found an awesome simple recipe for flourless Paleo pancakes that are packed with protein and perfect for when you have a little extra time on the weekends to cook breakfast.
There are just three ingredients: 4 whole eggs, 2 bananas and 2 tablespoons of almond butter (I substituted in sunflower seed butter). Just throw everything into a blender on low to make the batter.
Then cook them normally over medium heat in a skillet as you would any regular pancake. One suggestion is to use coconut oil (I like Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray) instead of butter to grease the pan. The batter yielded 6 large pancakes, all of which you should eat.
Here’s the nutritional info for my variation:
|Sunflower Seed Butter (2 tbsp)||200||7||16||7||120||3|
The pancakes are really good, especially if you like banana flavor.
They have the same look and feel of regular Bisquick pancakes, yet are half the fat, half the carbs and three times as much protein.
