The quickest route to your pancake fix (that still packs some nutrition oomph)? This 10-minute healthy banana pancakes recipe from Marissa Meshulam, RD that will satisfy your weekend morning sweet tooth in the best way.
But this isn't any ordinary pancake recipe. Thanks to blood sugar-balancing ingredients like cinnamon and chia seeds, plus nutrient-rich ingredients like Eggland's Best eggs and antioxidant-filled cacao nibs, your comfort-food brunch will also support your well-being.
"Pancakes are a breakfast staple, but traditional recipes are high in sugar and low in fiber, causing a spike in our blood sugar and leaving us ravenous soon thereafter," Meshulam says. "These healthy banana pancakes are a spin on the diner classic that is filled with fiber to help mediate your blood sugar response and keep you satisfied longer."
Plus, since Eggland's Best eggs have six times more vitamin D (known to help fight off harmful bacteria and viruses, according to studies), 10 times more vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant that can also fight infection), and more than double the vitamin B12 and omega-3s compared to ordinary eggs, you'll score extra immune support with your breakfast. (Who can say no to that?)
Top your stack with sliced banana, Greek yogurt, coconut flakes, maple syrup, or all of the above, and you'll be thankful you tore yourself away from your pillow to make it. But, no judgement if you head back to your bedroom to dig in. Breakfast in bed, anyone?
