The Skinny Pancakes

Okay so I know I went on a bit of a break there but with a new school term (my LAST one!) starting and the after holiday blahs finally leaving I am ready to fit blogging back into my schedule!

Over the break, I spent a lot of time catching up on some of my fave blogs.

One in particular being The Skinny Confidential.

The lady behind the blog, Lauryn Evarts, has such a cool and chic style about her that I just love. All of her posts hold some kind of knowledge that any lady should be in touch with, seriously check her out. For a link to her blog – click here.

One post that stood out to me from her site awhile ago was her Three Ingredient Pancakes. 

Now, anyone who knows me knows I LOVE PANCAKES.

Winnipeggers, those Stellas blueberry pancakes tho? Stacks on stacks on stacks….

(Especially over the break, oops)

So I had read about this recipe awhile ago and at first was a bit unsure, solely because I am very particular about banana flavouring and was wondering if it would be too overpowering.

HOWEVER, I tried this recipe today and they are THE BOMB.COM. Seriously, if you are looking for a quick, easy, and HEALTHY substitute to squash those pancake cravings – look no further. They blew my damn mind.

Okay so what do you need to make these.

1 Banana

2 eggs

chia seeds

seriously…that’s it.

I started off by mashing up the banana and combining it with the two eggs, and about a 1/2 cup of chia seeds. Honestly, it kind of is up to you as to how many chia seeds you need/want.

Then I mixed the ingredients up in my Kitchenaid mixer.

Then in a pan over with a bit of coconut oil (because I honestly put that shit on everything), I turned the stove to low heat. Honestly, I found that these little guys cook super quickly, so the lower the heat, the better chances you have of them not burning. (I was obviously trying to multitask and do a million other things at the same time)

Side note, on her blog, Lauryn recommends making your own sort of berry concoction to put ontop of the pancakes, by mixing a bit (or a lot) of lemon juice, a few drops of maple syrup, and mashing up your favourite berries. I used blueberries because that is what I had, but would have loved to try it with raspberries. It was delish, and a really good replacement for insane amounts of syrup.

AND HERE ARE THE RESULTS.

yummmmmm.

I probably had about 6 of these….so good.

(Moderation blah blah blah okay 2016)

I loved this recipe, they turned out so well, and for a girl on the go, these were tasty, awesome, and fast!

Obviously with my lemon perrier because I’m obsessed. I also thought Coal and Canary’s 110 Calories candle was appropriate, plus it smells like heaven.


Again, thanks to The Skinny Confidential for this great recipe!
