Healthy 2 Ingredient Pancakes with Apple Cinnamon Syrup

Healthy Apple Cinnamon PancakesYou need to stop whatever you’re doing right now and RUN to make these pancakes. These things are no joke. Seriously.faith and fitness blog healthy pancakesHealthy pancakes? Who knew there could ever be such a thing? Well, except Pinterest. I had been seeing this recipe alllll over pinterest for about, eh, I don’t know… maybe A YEAR before ever trying them out. Partially because I just didn’t believe they’d be good and partially because I never had proper equipment around. But now I have a ninja (!!!!) and I’m constantly looking for recipes so I can use that bad boy.faith and fitness blog healthy pancakesOKKK so what is the recipe you ask? One banana and two eggs. Yup, that’s all! It sounded so bizarre to me. How on earth could pancakes come from that? But I’m starting to realize that when in doubt, use a banana. Does anyone else get that from pinterest? Bananas seem to be the superhero in every recipe.IMG_4879 IMG_4892So here’s the baking process: put two eggs and a banana in a blender/food processor/ninja and blend that baby up! Some recipes say you can just mash it together with a fork but I just don’t trust my mashing ability to make them the right consistency. PLUS whipping them in a blender or food processor incorporates air into the batter and makes them niiiiice and fluffy.

I love pancakes but face it… they’re just not healthy for you in any way. And then dumping buckets of sugar on top just doesn’t scream nutritious. But hey, to each his own!faith and fitness blog healthy pancakesIMG_4939 faith and fitness blog healthy pancakesI opted for healthier “syrup” using applesauce, honey, cinnamon, and vanilla. IT WAS SO GOOD. These pancakes already have a lot of moisture in them so you really don’t need much syrup anyways. I also put a little dollop of peanut butter on mine cuz I’m a PB addict. And peanut butter and bananas are the dream team.IMG_4961 faith and fitness blog healthy pancakesSo there you have it! Healthy pancakes for just 250 calories!...(not including syrup)… The batter made me 5 large pancakes. Add a little apple cinnamon syrup and peanut butter and you’re set!
