Peanut Butter, Banana, Choco Chip Pancakes! (3 ingredient batter!)

I'm sure most health foodies are now aware of the incredibly simple pancake recipe consisting only of banana and eggs. This is a major break through considering pancakes are usually loaded with flour, oil and sugar. These are so accessible (who doesn't have a banana and egg hanging around) and actually taste pretty darn good!

I've experimented with a few different recipes, one was 2 eggs to 1 banana, another 3 eggs to 1 banana and the last one was 1 egg to 1 banana. After making all three, I prefer the 1 egg to 1 banana, although it tasted the most strongly like banana it was the most moist, I found the more eggs I put in the drier the pancakes were.

I decided to add some peanut butter to add a peanut-ty twist and to create a thicker batter.

2 eggs
2 bananas
2 tbsp peanut butter
Vanilla extract (or cinnamon!)
Chocolate chips

Combine the eggs, bananas, and peanut butter (salt and vanilla extract) in a food processor, or just mash it up with a fork! Spoon batter onto frying pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips and cook on LOW for 3 minutes, flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

PB-Honey Spread

1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp peanut butter

Combine both ingredients together and spread onto pancakes. So good! I've enjoyed these for breakfast, dinner and after workouts. Adding in a scoop of protein would make these super charged!
