Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes

These banana pancakes will change your life. They are literally just bananas and eggs that magically turn into pancakes. The texture is best with the baking powder added, but many are happy without the addition.

Bananas are great before and after a workout for their high potassium and simple carbohydrates, combined with eggs for protein and it is the perfect 5 minute breakfast.

Keep the pancakes small to make them easier to flip and you should yield about 8 pancakes.
