Welcome! Let me start by saying I know these aren’t the most photogenically fluffy pancakes you’ll ever see, but they are so easy to make and so healthy that it more than makes up for their looks. And besides, looks aren’t everything, right? 😉

We make these pancakes at least 3 times a week in our home because They. Are. So. Easy. This pancake recipe (if it counts as one) has been floating around the internet for a while. I first discovered it when we started eating paleo on a more regular basis. The entire recipe consists of 1 banana, 2 eggs, and a Tbs of cinnamon. Combine all 3 ingredients in one bowl, mix them together (making sure to mash the banana up well), and cook the batter up in a pan the way you would a normal pancake.

The main reason l love these pancakes is how quickly they can be made – in under 5 minutes I can have a healthy, homemade breakfast on the table. We’ve also been known to whip them up as a late night snack.

For this batch I used a silicone heart mold to cook the pancakes and then added some fruit for fun. Does anyone else cut the stems out of their strawberries so they look like hearts? I think it’s one of those little touches that can elevate the everyday to something special. And it’s easy, and I’m all about easy.

That’s it! Super simple with the bonus of being hearty and healthy. When I make these for basic everyday pancakes I put butter and a little extra cinnamon sprinkled on top of mine. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Bon appétit!
