Blueberry Sauce

Pancakes…..who doesn’t love pancakes??? Well, although I don’t have them often and when I do I make this recipe. But then I think, now what do I top it with if I just made a healthier version of the dish and don’t want to ruin it by pouring syrup?! Well, that’s how I came up with my blueberry sauce idea.

It’s as simple as placing a handful of blueberries in a microwaveable dish and heat for 20-30 seconds. I take them out and mixed them up and mush them with a spoon and repeat. Until I get the desired consistency.

Who wants PANCAKES???

I was so happy to find this recipe online. I’m not a huge fan of pancakes but once in a while I do crave some.  Now you can have guilt-free pancakes!

The best thing is that you only need three ingredients!
.
For a one person serving  use one banana and one egg with a tablespoon of almond butter. For more pancakes, use more eggs and bananas with a really big tablespoon of almond butter.

 

Mix all ingredients together.

And cook just like a regular pancake…

 SO DELICIOUS!

 Now you only need a good syrup. Go natural and have your pancakes with honey or real Maple syrup like I have here.  None of that fake sugar and high fructose syrup!!!

UPDATE!!!

I have been making them with same ingredients but adding one scoop of whey protein. I also poach one soft egg on top with fruit and leave out the syrup…. Just like this!

Another variation for toppings is the blueberry sauce. Just microwave a handful of blueberries until they start to pop and the sauce starts to form. Keep your eye on them because a blueberry explosion in your microwave can happen. Believe, I know!! 😉

Pancake ingredients for one large serving is:

1/2 banana
1 TBP of almond butter
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
3 TBP of egg whites

Mix all in a bowl and transfer to greased pan and allow it to cook fully before flipping and cooking other side. For more adjust amount of ingredients.
