There are a few foods that I rarely ever eat. (Notice, I did NOT say “never”)
I rarely ever only have pancakes for breakfast. I love pancakes, don’t get me wrong. But they’re usually all carbs with no fiber and protein, leaving me hungry way before lunch time.
So when I found a recipe on Pinterest for “skinny” pancakes that would be healthful and filling, I was intrigued.
Ok, so I ALWAYS refer back to a recipe I’m writing about if I’m not the original author. However, I can’t find the origin of the pin that contains this recipe. So I’m sharing it here. Kudos go to the original author. 🙂
Here’s the recipe and instructions, then my review below:
Makes 1 serving
- 1/2 cup oats (instant or old fashioned oats)
- 1/2 very ripe banana (about 3″)
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Tiny pinch of salt (I added this to the recipe)
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high about 20 seconds.
Cook on hot griddle that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Now my review:
They were good! Much more dense than regular pancakes. These are not IHOP’s fluffy short stack. But if you’re wanting pancakes that are a bit more filling and nutritious, these may be for you. Try them out and tell me what you think!
Final verdict: I would make them again. Although they’re not a dead ringer for my favorite flapjacks.
