Easy, Healthy Pancakes

One of our favorite items to eat on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) so far are banana pancakes. Initially I could taste the difference between these and “normal” pancakes (think Bisquick), but my taste buds can’t tell now. They are delicious, and so healthy!

To make them, combine:

– 1 large, ripe banana
– 2 eggs (we’re using cage-free, organic eggs whenever possible – Whole Foods sells 18 ct. cage-free medium-sized eggs for $2.99)

Blend the ingredients in a blender. I use a Bella Blender that I got at Kohl’s a few months ago for under $6. I just won the Magic Bullet on a blog giveaway and look forward to trying that product as soon as I receive it. I will post a comparison once I have had a chance to try the Magic Bullet.

Once the eggs and banana are blended, pour the batter into a greased pan or on a griddle. I am using an Eco Pan that I purchased at a HomeGoods Store for less than $15. I LOVE this pan. I use a small amount of unsalted, organic butter and my food does not stick at all. I have lots of “non-stick” pans and none compare to the Eco Pan. The coating is supposed to be a safe ceramic from Germany, though I am not able to find a lot of information about them online.

I try to make small pancakes as they are easier to flip, and it looks like there’s more food on the plate!

I sometimes add SCD yogurt to the batter. This is yogurt I make over 24 hours in my Excalibur Dehydrator – full of fabulous probiotics! And instead of syrup, I use warm, pureed blueberries or peaches as a topping.

For those who are not on a restrictive diet, these pancakes are a great back-up option if you don’t have a mix on-hand.

    It is probably the same recipe but I will post what I do this week. I have been using goat milk but plan to try cow milk next.
