three-ingredient green banana pancakes

Untitled

As promised…I added even more nutrition to the pancakes I made the other day.

I love adding in some vegetables to every meal, and when I’m craving something sweet for breakfast, I usually go for overnight oatmeal or a green smoothie. But when it gets a little too cold for an ice-cold smoothie (or let’s be real, when I just want pancakes), I think these are an awesome way to sneak in some greens! I know it sounds a little weird, but just give it a try!

two-ingredient banana pancakes

Untitled

I usually eat the same thing evvvery single morning because I love routine (or maybe I’m just incredibly boring).

But when I’m in the mood for something sweet instead of my usual (spinach & mushroom scrambled eggs with hot sauce…try it, it’s the bomb), I make these pancakes instead!

Super easy, healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, and no added sugar!

Easy Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

1 ripe banana
2 eggs

Optional additions:
1 teaspoon baking powder *HIGHLY recommended to make them fluffier!
cinnamon to taste (I like cinnamon a LOT, so I usually use 1/2 teaspoon)
splash of vanilla
fruit…chocolate chips…your normal banana accoutrements ;)

Mash banana in a bowl. Add eggs and blend until combined. Add in baking powder and other additions

Heat up skillet to medium, and cook pancakes! I like to make mini pancakes because they cook more evenly and are easier to flip.

And EVEN healthier spin on these coming soon!

full body circuit workout

My second ever workout graphic! Still not sure how I feel about randomly interspersing these between vegan chocolate cheesecakes and things, but I’ll be glad I wrote this down so I can do it again later!

full body workout

This is an awesome do-anywhere circuit combination with a mix of cardio, strength, and core work! You end up doing up to 100 reps of certain moves. I love the variety, cause there’s no other way you’ll see me do 100 squats and 50 burpees!

raw vegan chocolate mini cheesecakes

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 5.26.19 PM

I’ve always wanted to try making raw cheesecakes using cashews, but for some reason soaking the cashews intimidated me. Don’t ask me why…you plop them in water and forget about them for hours.

Plus the fact that there is no baking or much work involved whatever.

Basically you have no excuses not to make these.

Same picture, but I couldn’t decide which one I liked better! I think they make them look equally delicious :)

cinnamon peach baked oatmeal

Screen Shot 2014-08-16 at 10.47.22 AM

I usually eat really simple and fast breakfasts that require minimal prep–eggs, smoothies, or overnight oats. But sometimes (rarely) I am extra motivated to food prep for the entire week, and baked oatmeal makes for an awesome breakfast.

This is adapted from Fitnessista’s recipe–love her blog! It is naturally sweetened from the banana and spices, so feel free to add additional sweetener if that is how you usually like your oats!
