Healthy. Fluffy. Delicious.

Pancakes worth getting out of bed for

If there’s one thing that can get me out of bed on a weekend, it’s pancakes. Chances are you’re reading this because you’re a fan of pancakes too, but you also love to eat healthy. Well, you’ve come to the right place. As much as I LOVE buttermilk pancakes, they’re packed with sugar and greased in butter so they don’t leave me feeling too great afterwards.

Majority of you have probably already seen those 2-ingredient pancakes (eggs + banana) and whilst I admire the simplicity, they can be quite flimsy, thin and flavourless. They lack that fluffiness which is what I love most about a pancake.

After some recipe researching and a lot of testing, I think I’ve finally found the best healthy pancake recipe! And don’t worry, I still kept ingredients to a minimum so they’re still quick and easy to whip up.

These pancakes are light, fluffy and taste like the real thing. You can dress them up with any toppings you’d like, but I’ve left my favourites in the recipe below!

Ingredients

2 eggs
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 medium-size ripe banana
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (the thicker, the better)
1-2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop protein powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat and coat it with cooking spray or oil.
  2. Add all ingredients to blender. I blend it for about 5 seconds until the mixture goes frothy.
  3. Drop batter onto skillet. Cook until the edges begin to look dry and bubbles start to form on the top of the pancake, about 1 minute. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Re-spray/oil pan between each batch.
  4. Serve with your favourite toppings! I used raw honey, sliced strawberries, lemon, chia seeds, & bananas. Other options include melted frozen blueberries, pan-fried bananas in cinnamon & honey (SO GOOD, trust me), and nuts.

  • OMG I am absolutely trying these tomorrow morning. I am definitely struggling to understand how some people ‘rave’ about those two-three ingredient pancakes – sorry, but no. These sound perfect, and with strawberry season in full swing I can’t wait!
