Oh so easy!
Pancakes. Fiddly and frustrating to make, fatty to eat. Taste awesome though. Surely there must be some sort of middle ground?
What if I told you it’s possible to make pancakes from just two ingredients – bananas and eggs? ‘MADNESS!’ I hear you cry. But it’s true.
Health Benefits – Banana Egg Pancakes
One banana and two eggs will knock up a brilliant breakfast for one person – and one that’s full of vitamin b6 – which is normally found in fish and meat.
It helps to stop skin rashes, fatigue and mood swings and is used with over 100 different enzymes in the body (1).
They’re also full of manganese which is used for bone production, skin integrity and for blood sugar control.
It also protects against free radicals and skin issues, and can even alleviate asthma (2).
Want more? Well on top of they even contain high amounts of fiber, potassium and protein. What are you waiting for?

EQUIPMENT & PRODUCT TIPS:
You'll need a non-stick pan to make these pancakes work, that's it. Not happy with your current one? See what you think about this pan.
I recently started using coconut oil instead of butter for frying these fellas and I have to say it's really good! If you want, give coconut oil a shot.
