A friend of mine has been trying out a bunch of healthy, protein-filled recipes lately and shared this one with me, because of my undying love for bananas and pancakes.

And, let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

This minimal-ingredient, super simple recipe is perfect for quickly filling your belly up on mornings when you have a little bit of extra time, but not the entire day to be cooking.


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 c. oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • any type of nut butter/sunflower butter
  • chocolate chips


  1. Lightly grease skillet and turn it on a low temperature
  2. Mix together all ingredients until viscous
  3. Spoon heaps of mixture onto skillet
  4. Gently flatten heaps with back of spoon
  5. Flip when pancakes no longer fall apart

To finish: spread some peanut, almond, sunflower, or what-have-you butter onto your pancakes, and sprinkle with chocolate chips to add even more sweetness. Enjoy!

*Since chocolate chips may not be the healthiest ingredient, they can easily be swapped out for blueberries, raspberries, sunflower seeds, or any other of your favorite, good-for-you toppings.*
