Clean Eating: Paleo Pancakes

If you're a frequent visitor of Pinterest like I am, you might've seen these pancake recipes floating around.  A healthier version of a Saturday morning ritual I had growing up? Yes, please!  I hardly ever eat them anymore, unless I'm lucky enough to be home while my mom is whipping up a batch.  Those two (or three, let's be honest) deliciously circular cakes of carbs drizzled with yummy syrup on top can pack a palatable punch, but lack the nutritional needs to last you all morning, bummer.

So, with keeping the new tradition of clean eating ... I give you the Paleo Pancakes! With just two ingredients, yes I said only two, and about 10 minutes of your time, you can enjoy a guilt-free treat on any morning of the week, or afternoon/evening for that matter!!

Yields: about 2 servings and only 250 calories for the entire batter


1 (ripened) banana
2 eggs


Just whip these together in a blender until soft ... and voila! you've make your pancake batter! Spray your skillet with cooking spray, any will do.  Turn on burner over medium-low heat. I made little mini pancakes ... the minis just seemed to have that special 'come and eat me' appeal to them.

Smile! Your about to eat clean!

Bon appétit !

Disclaimer: Be open minded ... if you're hoping for an exact replica of your favorite pancake recipe, without all the carb-loaded ingredients, you might be slightly underwhelmed. But for me, I thought they were the perfect substitute to a Saturday morning ritual! I was not dissapointed in the least with my new guilt-free clean eating recipe and will definitely be whipping up this easy recipe again!

Let me know what you think!

To clean eating and a healthier you...
