3 Ingredient Paleo Protein Pancakes

If you haven't tried these three ingredient pancakes yet, you are missing out! I gave up gluten for lent and was browsing the interwebs for some stellar recipes to satisfy my pancake craving. For some reason eating gluten free flour seems like cheating to me, so I wanted to find a recipe sans flour.

Luckily, I came across this one from The Skinny Confidential. There are different variations of this recipe all over Pinterest, but this was my favorite of them all. When I say three ingredients I mean only three ingredients. That said, I always like playing around with recipes so there are all kinds of inventive variations, but we'll stay with the basics here. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1-2 tbsp of Chia Seeds

Optional:

  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract

Toppings (get creative or stay with the basics)

Directions:

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and spray or coat with coconut oil. Pour the "batter" into dollar size pancakes. Heat the first side for about 30 seconds (you will see little bubbles starting to form), flip and cook until the other side is golden brown. Stack them, top them, and ENJOY :)
