This morning I woke up to a blood spot on my eyeball. Not sure what happened in my sleep, but it’s not a very pretty sight. I don’t know how it happened during my sleep, I mean, I hadn’t even done the P90x routine in a couple days, so how did I strain my eyeball…? until today (more on that tomorrow).
Yesterday one of my favorite blogs, The Cookie ChRUNicles, wrote about a 2-ingredient pancake, that she saw on another blog. I was intrigued and so decided to make them today. I couldn’t remember exactly how she made them, but with 2 ingredients, it was pretty simple. Banana and eggs. Those are always a staple in my home.
When I got to the fruit bowl, this is what I encountered. Eeek!
I am deathly afraid of spiders. This not-so-little guy is a good indication to the fact that spring is upon us and thus, the spiders are starting to appear in droves! This one illicited a number of squemish squeals and cries before I was able to use a long instrument to push a lemon over it and squish it. No way my hands were getting near that thing.
After the spider drama I was able to take a few breaths, brush away the ghost feeling of spiders crawling on my body and create the pancakes. I used a nice ripe banana and two eggs. That’s it!
I pulled out the long griddle I recently acquired for free (and never been used at that), heated it up and poured out the loose pancake batter in small amounts. I realize now after visiting Cookies blog that she just poured it all into one pan. Probably easier. But this way I was able to make a big stack! Which feels like you are getting more!! Bonus.
I don’t think the pan was hot enough for the first wave of batter.
I tasted them before I started the second batch. They were really sweet. I decided too sweet, even for this sugar addict! So I pulled out some peanut butter and spread just the smallest amount over each one (maybe about 2 teaspoons total for the entire batch.) This made them taste delicious! Banana and peanut butter is always a winning combination. The second batch were cooked a bit hotter and got a nice
burned brown color to them.
I think I will also follow Cookies tip of using egg whites instead of whole eggs. The fat content is a bit high. But overall, the nutrient facts are not that bad. There is a fair amount of protein and the saturated fat is low.
I was pretty happy and satisfied with this breakfast. I will definitely make them again!!
