Birthday Pancakes

Today is a very special day in the Tiny Tummy family... it's Mommy Tiny Tummy's birthday! She's turning 30! ... plus a few... Anyway, since we did the usual sushi for dinner, I couldn't let the day go by without making something for her, and since pancakes are her favorite, I decided to make her pancakes with a recipe I've been meaning to test out lately.

They say you can make pancakes with just bananas and eggs, but I was a little bit skeptical. I'm glad I decided to give it a try though because she LOVED them. And they couldn't have been easier to prepare. All you need is:

1 banana
2 eggs (or 1 whole egg + 1 egg white)
a dash of cinnamon
1/8 t vanilla extract

To prepare, simply mash the banana, beat the egg and egg white and combine the two along with the cinnamon and vanilla extract in a bowl. Then, spray a pan with coconut oil spray and cook on a medium heat until the pancakes are cooked through. They actually come out looking like real pancakes, as you can see above. Can't beat that!

Feelin' Frisky? Feel free to add chocolate chips, berries, extra banana slices, etc. -- I would have, but I wanted to make sure they were yummy first- and they were!!!

  1. My hubby and I just started Whole30 this month and you have just rocked my world with this recipe! THANK YOU! For a fun little topping, I blended blackberries, strawberries, coconut shavings, & banana in the food processor. So good! My tastebuds, my stomach, my husband and I thank you. :)

    1. I am SO glad to hear that and that sounds delicious! Good luck on your Whole30 journey!
