Food glorious food!! Breakfast is my personal favorite meal of the day. I have been eating egg whites and oatmeal for far too long now, but it works, so I stick with it. On those days when I just can’t stand another bowl of it, I will flip through instagram for breakfast inspiration. I stumbled upon a 3 ingredient banana and egg white pancake. So I got in the kitchen to try this newbie out.
My significant other has a beautiful induction cooktop. He does not, however, have a non stick pan for this. 8 trial pancakes into this banana pancake recipe and I was infuriated. I mean honestly, I just want one pancake that doesn’t look like a complete unidentifiable object. I had a little batter left over so I threw it in a mug and placed it into the microwave. 1 minute later I discovered a perfectly cooked soufflé of sorts. This was awesome!! Only took me an hour and a half to figure it out. If others have already figured this out, well, you are the better man or woman for sure. To save the rest of us time, I am sharing my discovery.
Ingredients ( Makes 2 Servings ):
6 Tbsp liquid egg whites
2 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 whole ripe banana
Mash the rip banana and mix it with the other two ingredients in a bowl. Place half the mixture in a microwaveable mug in the microwave for 1-1.5min depending on your microwave. Just make sure the end product isn’t runny. The final result should light and fluffy.
