How Many Did It Make : In total I was able to make 22 cookies with the ingredients provided and making the cookies a little smaller then the suggested tablespoon size.


My Family's Verdict :

My Food Critic Hubby's Thoughts : Poor guy can't eat them/try them because he's on the Paleo Diet and this recipe has 2 ingredients that he's not able to eat (oats and peanut butter).

My Thoughts : Yummy and good. However, not very tasty if the chocolates aren't included (as I had a bite without some and it wasn't as good).

My 2-year-old Daughter's Thoughts : Thought they were yummy and kept asking for more!

Author instructions & pictures :

ALL NATURAL PANCAKE RECIPE... NO PROCESSED ANYTHING!!

- 1 ripe banana
- 2 whole eggs

That’s it. Just mix together in a bowl and make sure the banana is all mashed. Then spray your pan with some "spray & cook" or coconut oil. On a low to medium heat, scoop some of the batter into the pan & give it about 20-30 sec, flip, and done! Serve and eat!

*Some advice would be to make them small so its easier to flip

Under 250 calories, nearly 14g of protein! No processed anything! These pancakes are gluten free, low calorie.


My Attempt/Success with this Recipe :

Ingredients :


Mixing it all up :


1st Attempt with Coconut Oil : I got reminded that I suck at flipping pancakes, and the Coconut Oil just made it worse.

2nd Attempt with Pam Cooking Spray : It was easier to flip using the cooking spray. However, I'm not sure if it was because of my gas stove or if it was just me but it took longer then the 20-30 seconds to flip more like a minute and a half.

How Much Did It Make : In total I was able to make 7 small pancakes with the ingredients provided.


My Family's Verdict :

My Food Critic Hubby's Thoughts : Thought it was good and liked that it was healthy because he could then eat it with his diet.

My Thoughts : Sweeter then I expected but not bad.

My 2-year-old Daughter's Thoughts : She wouldn't say if she liked it or not. Yet she had a few bites without spitting it out and wouldn't eat the rest. =0/
