January is over! Though I know we still have plenty of cold weather to come, the arrival of February already has me thinking spring. What better way to bring in the new month than with a pancake breakfast? It’s like eating dessert in the morning. And at only 195 calories, you can definitely have your [pan]cake and eat it, too. (I’m not sure that makes a lick of sense. It’s still morning, and my brain is lingering in sleep-mode.) Anyway…before I blather on further, check out these babies!
Single-Serving Banana Pancakes with Peanut Butter Spread
- 1/2 medium banana, mashed
- 1/2 flax egg (1/2T ground flax + 1 1/2T water, mix and let sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes)
- 1 stevia packet
- Dash cinnamon
- 1/4t vanilla
- Pinch salt
- 2T white whole-wheat flour
- 2T quick oats
- 1/4t baking powder
Combine mashed banana with flax egg and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, stevia, cinnamon and salt. Add dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir to combine. Pour pancake mixture onto a skillet or griddle sprayed with cooking spray. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip your pancake and brown the other side.
I topped the pancakes with Peanut Butter-Protein Spread and blueberries. Mmm…
