4-Ingredient Pancakes – Delicious and healthy!

I saw the following pin on Pinterest.

It links to a recipe for pancakes made of bananas, eggs, and cinnamon.  I was completely skeptical, but decided to give it a try.  However, I upped mine to 4 ingredients by adding zucchini!  Anytime I can add a vegetable to a meal, I do.  Fruit is great, but vegetables are even better!  I also used nutmeg instead of cinnamon just because I prefer the taste of nutmeg over cinnamon.

So, as I said, I was completely skeptical, but once I whipped these up and actually took a bite, I was pleasantly surprised.  Do I think it tastes exactly like a regular pancake, no.  However, I think it tastes like a delicious pancake in itself (actually, it reminded me of a mixture of a pancake and a crepe), and that is good enough for me…especially since it’s WAY healthier than traditional pancakes.  I do think that if you added a small bit of coconut flour to these, they would resemble traditional pancakes even more, but these are quite tasty as is, so it’s up to you!

2.) Using a fork, stir the ingredients together until smooth.  Or you can put it all in a blender and do it that way.

3.) Lightly oil a frying pan with coconut oil or olive oil and place the frying pan on medium/low heat.  Measure out 1/3 cup of the batter and poor it into the frying pan.  Cook on one side till you are able to flip it (about 2-3 minutes).

5.) Transfer pancake to a plate.  Continue this process until all the batter is used up.  This should make about 4 pancakes.
