Lower Carb Banana Pancakes

Updated 9/10/2021: So, first off, yes I know bananas are high in Potassium.  But, I only use a half a banana in my pancakes.  Plus they are lower carb because I don’t put any flour in it.  I originally found a larger portion of this recipe on a picky eaters blog, but I can’t remember the name.  There are only two ingredients in this recipe, my version, 1 large egg, and 1/2 a ripe banana.  You simply smash the banana with a fork, and then mix in the egg.  You can add cinnamon, vanilla, or nutmeg, if you like, but I like a little maple syrup on mine.  After it is all mixed together, you simply pour it into a non stick skillet, and let it cook just like a pancake.  Breakfast sausage would be super yummy with this.  Of course you could add flour, but that will just increase calories, carbs, and phosphorus levels.  Adding any kind of meat will increase phosphorus levels as well.  Remember if you are counting amounts of nutrients, track for a 1/2 a banana and one large egg. There are 18 grams of carbs in this one pancake, and 95 mg of Phosphorus because of the egg. You could use egg whites instead to bring the Phosphorus level down. But, you are still saving because pancake mix, even organic ones, are high in Phosphorus. If you are following a Keto diet, these are probably not going to be low carb enough to meat your Macros for the day.

These are so easy to make, and delicious.  If you like to skip breakfast like me, these might make you change your mind.  In a couple of minutes you will have a nutritious, and delicious breakfast.  Try it, tell me if you like them!  Leave me a comment, or use the contact form below to message me.
