Whole Wheat Banana Cinnamon Pancakes

wholewheatcinnamonpancakesLast week I caught some sort of stomach bug.  Nothing sat well with me, I was nauseous,  and nothing ever sounded good.  (And no, I’m not pregnant.)  It wasn’t great timing for me as I was prepping for my half marathon on Saturday.  I ate bland, snacky foods all week to try and calm my stomach.  By Friday I was feeling a little better and knew I needed a real meal. These pancakes were the first sustainable thing I ate. 

You may have seen a teaser for them on Instagram.  Called them my breakfast of champions.  Just what I needed to fuel me the day before a race.

 I ate this entire stack (not even kidding) and felt great.  My little champs in the house had a mini stack too and loved them.

Whole wheat banana and cinnamon pancakes.  Drenched in syrup you guys.  Make ‘em.  

They’re healthy.  And hearty.  And super duper delicious.  You whip up the batter in your blender, which makes them super easy to make too.

And, they make you run really fast…

    Aw, so glad that you’re feeling better. There are some horrible stomach bugs going around at the moment… I work in a hospital so I’ve seen the influx! Anyway, on to a brighter note: these pancakes look gorgeously soft, moist and delicious. You definitely can’t go wrong with the flavour combination and they’re definitely the pick-me-up food of champions! Yum! And healthy too!

    These look so yummy! I have been using my grandma’s recipe for pancakes for like forever and this would definitely change up our Saturday morning routine! How many pancakes does this recipe usually make? Also, what is the nutritional value, mainly the carbohydrates and calories? Being a diabetic, I am currently strictly counting carbs in EVERY meal. Thanks for posting this!

    My husband and I tried this recipe this morning and the pancakes were delish! It made just the right amount for 2 people. We’ll be making these pancakes again!

    Thanks for the great recipe. Very good, great taste, used more cinnamon & olive oil instead of coconut oil, still worked very well. Very easy; doubled recipe fit in my blender. Nice site too! J.
