Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes

Breakfast for dinner has become a weekly tradition at my house, and who eats breakfast for dinner without pancakes! I wanted to change up our typical pancake dinner and make it a little healthier. The first time I tried making banana pancakes they didn’t turn out quite right. With a little experimenting I came up with a kid-approved recipe!

Banana Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup oats
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Strawberries to top

Directions:

  • Mash banana in a bowl, then whisk in eggs, once combine stir in oats and cinnamon. Let set for 5 minutes.
  • Warm skillet to medium heat. Use 1/4 cup scoop for each pancake. Allow pancake to completely cook on one side and it is noticeably holding its shape before flipping.
  • This recipe will make 3 pancakes.

Enjoy!

Spiced Pork Loin

Prep once, eat twice! This is my rule when making pork loin. Pork loin comes in a pack of 2. When I first started cooking pork I was disappointed that I could not just buy one. Now, I rub the spices on each pork loin, place one in a baking dish to cook and the other in a bag and put it in the freezer.
