EASY BREAKFAST IDEAS. I can’t tell you how many people requested this. Well I can, and it was a lot. I get it. Breakfast at my house is one of the most hectic and rushed times of day. I wish we were that family that leisurely sat down to breakfast together every morning, but that’s just not the case.
Zach leaves before the sun comes up to squeeze in a workout close to his office before rush hour. So weekday mornings are just me and the girls. Needless to say, none of us are morning people. Especially me. If I hit snooze only 4 times, that’s a good day.
Mornings typically consist of me launching out of bed, realizing we only have about 23 minutes before I need to get dressed, walk the dog, pack lunch (if I was too lazy to do it the night before), get the girls dressed and fed and out the door. Let’s just say it’s not a pretty scene, and it certainly doesn’t include a lovely sit down well balanced meal.
No, I’m not proud of it, but it’s just the way it is. Dinner is and always will be my thing. Sorry, breakfast. I just can’t get it together.
My girls typically know to grab a yogurt or smoothie from the fridge and on days where we have more time I can throw a frozen waffle or some pancakes into the microwave. But during the day when I DO have time, I can make these pancakes ahead of time and freeze them! Then simply toss a few in the microwave and head out the door!
Now, because there’s no flour in these, don’t expect that typical chewy like texture from a regular pancake. These are not your average pancake! But if you’re looking for a quick and slightly healthier breakfast option, here ya go!
4 simple ingredients to create a healthier pancake option. They freeze well and great for on the go!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 4 eggs
- ¾ cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Add the eggs and whisk together. Stir in the almond flour and baking powder until well combined.
- Heat a nonstick pan over medium/high heat. Spray with a little nonstick cooking spray and spoon about ¼ cup scoops of batter into the heated pan. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
- Serve alone or with maple syrup! You can keep these in the fridge or freezer and simply reheat in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
