Banana Pancakes
This banana pancake recipe packs in more nutrients than traditional flour-based pancakes. The bananas add a natural sweetness and fiber, while oats offer fullness and a slew of vitamins and minerals like iron, B vitamins and manganese. While most pancake toppings aren’t healthy — think maple syrup or whipped cream — this recipe offers flavor without the added sweetness or calories. Mix powdered peanut butter to the desired consistency and gently drizzle over the pancakes. Pair with your favorite berries and voila — a balanced, healthy and delicious breakfast.
