I love waking up on a Saturday or Sunday morning and making a delicious breakfast. During the week, I’m usually crunched for time in the mornings, so breakfast is either an instant oatmeal with some berries and nuts, a piece of toast with nut butter and berries, or a yogurt with some fruit and nut butter.  These are all wonderful, delicious, and healthy options, but when Saturday comes, it feels nice to put a little extra time into my breakfast, sit down as a family, and really enjoy.

One of my favorite go-to weekend breakfasts is pancakes with eggs. These 3-ingredient pancakes are my favorite because I always have the ingredients on hand, they are SO quick and easy to make, and they consist of simple, REAL ingredients that not only taste good, but make me FEEL good. They are light, naturally sweet, and satisfying. I usually eat 1-2 pancakes (they’re pretty small) with either nut butter and Greek yogurt on top or some scrambled eggs on the side. Note: it’s always smart to add in a little protein and healthy fat with your carbs to help you feel full and satisfied. It’s also more favorable for your blood sugar.  Speaking of sugar, these babies are added sugar free (all of the sweetness comes from banana)! They are also dairy free and gluten free if that’s your thing!
Feel free to play around with different flours, and add in blueberries or chocolate chips (or both!) I use buckwheat flour because I like the nutty taste and texture that it gives. Buckwheat is a good source of soluble fiber (great for digestion, heart health, and blood sugar control), antioxidants, and plant protein. It’s also a great option for those with Celiac disease. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
