Are you ready for a perfect, healthy, dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast that tastes like you're cheating??  

HERE IT IS!  

These pancakes are so simple to make and so delicious- and perfect for before or after a workout! 

I topped mine with Bananas and Nutella.  

Topping Ideas: 

Berries, Peanut Butter, PB2, Almond Butter, Sugar Free Syrup, Philosophies Cacao Magic, Jelly.. The possibilities are endless! 

This recipe is very forgiving- if you want peanut butter pancakes, add a Tablespoon of peanut butter to the batter. This goes for blueberries (add 1/4 Cup after blending) or any other mix-in! The batter will not change. Just don't forget to let it sit for a few minutes before you cook it.  

INGREDIENTS

1 Ripe Banana, Mashed

1 Egg OR 2 Egg Whites  

1/2 Cup Gluten Free Oat Flour (or plain gluten-free flour)

1 Teaspoon-1 Tablespoon Protein Powder (I Used 1 Teaspoon Philosophies Cacao Magic Vegan Protein) (OPTIONAL)

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Unsweetend Almond Milk  (or Greek yogurt if you like dairy)

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda  

1/4 Teaspoon Salt  

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Blend all ingredients in a small blender or in a small bowl with a whisk until smooth. (I used my Nutribullet) 

2. LET BATTER SIT FOR AT LEAST 3 MINUTES! This step is very important!! If you pour the batter too fast, it will be runny and the pancakes will be thin. Letting it sit will allow the flour to absorb the liquid- thicker pancakes.  

3. While waiting, preheat your pan and spray with a non stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 Cup -1/3 Cup of batter on the hot pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until edges look cooked. FLIP!

4. Cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove from pan and top with whatever you'd like. ENJOY!
