Protein-Packed, Gluten Free Banana Pancakes

Print

I love to make breakfast for dinner and I still sometimes crave sweet carb-y things. I used to make really complicated gluten-free pancakes from scratch using 3-4 different kinds of flour before I realized how much easier these were! Nothing hits the spot like these with pure maple syrup, eggs and bacon or sausage.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

With 12 grams of protein per serving, these pancakes are guaranteed to keep you humming until lunch (or breakfast, if you’re having them for dinner, like Megan likes to)! Using bananas to sweeten ensures that you’re getting more fiber and nutrients than you would if you used refined sugar, and you’re less likely to get the traditional post-pancake sugar crash. Nutmeg and cinnamon help with that, too. Both are powerful spices that help regulate blood sugar.
