My favorite healthy “pancakes”

imageWhen it comes to pancakes, there isn’t too much nutritional value in them. Therefore, pancakes are usually the last thing I would think about eating for breakfast (unless I am going to Pancake Pantry. It’s my exception to the rule).

In the last few weeks, I kept coming across healthy pancake recipes on Pinterest. They are easy and super healthy. All you need are egg whites, a banana and quick-oats.

They are delicious without any additions, but you can add just about anything you would add to pancakes! My suggestions are: flax seeds, chia seeds, blueberries, blackberries or chocolate chips.

These pancakes are a great way to get a serving of fruit, protein and fiber in your breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and these pancakes will keep you full until lunchtime.

I typically don’t eat syrup because there’s too much sugar in it. So, I top my pancakes with PB2 or more fruit.
