Can a healthy eating meal plan include pancakes? It can, but probably not if you go to IHOP. Even a healthy sounding option like “ Harvest Grain ‘N Nut Pancakes” will cost you almost 1,000 calories and that’s before you add the butter, “fruit” topping, syrup and whipped cream. What a way to start the day 😉

But, you needn’t ban pancakes from your healthy eating meal plan. It turns out that you can make healthy pancakes with just two simple ingredients. If you have a gluten sensitivity you’ll love this recipe.

All you need are two eggs and a banana. Really. Eggs are a very healthy way to start the day. They’ll provide you with enough healthy protein to keep you feeling full until lunchtime and the banana will provide you with necessary vitamins and minerals including potassium, magnesium, and Vitamins B-6 and C. Feel free to add some spices or your favorite berries.
