Hello there real foodies. Today I’m bring you two similar recipes that are not mine. There are many people practicing a Paleo or Primal eating plan, and many people who avoid gluten. Then, there are some of us (me) that are just a little lazy and headlines like “two ingredient pancake” make us jump for joy. Two lovely ladies; Jennifer from Wine to Weightlifting and Sarah from Less Sugar, More Spice, recently posted recipes for a simple pancake.
Jennifer admits that in the strictest sense, these are not Paleo because pancakes are a “bad” food, but all the ingredients (all two of them) are indeed Paleo. She also assures you these are easy because she is “lazy.” Because those crazy Crossfit people are definitely “lazy” in my book 😉
Sarah describes her pancakes as kitchen magic. She adds a third ingredient for some extra protein and makes healthy pancakes. Now, I think pancakes deserve their own food group, so add healthy to the label and I’m sold. I will be over for breakfast tomorrow Sarah!
These also make excellent toddler chow. Ever met a kid that didn’t like pancakes? I made a batch with a spoonful of peanut butter (he’s 2 and ok with peanut butter, follow your discretion about young children and nut products) and local toddler ate all three pancakes.
Substitutions: I know I have some readers that don’t do bananas. In my head, this recipe will work perfectly with a sweet potato instead of the banana. I didn’t have any sweet potatoes around (gasp!) to try it out. I tried it many, many ways with canned pumpkin and it didn’t work. At all… My dog, however, got her fill of pumpkin blobs. For the vegans, I’m not well versed enough on egg substitution to try this one. If you do, please let me know in the comments!
