Banana Bread Pancakes

Ever been craving some warm, fresh banana bread but didn't want to wait the 45 minutes for it to bake? You just want warm banana bread for breakfast, right NOW! This happened to me so I decided I needed to find a way to crush that craving and fast! 

Viola! Banana Bread Pancakes were born!
...see-sometimes doing whatever you can do to get what you want isn't such a bad thing! So next time you want something-don't settle! Go out there and get it! ...it might just lead to something amazing...like Banana Bread Pancakes :)





if you're anything like me-like the bowl clean!


ENJOY!
I like to top mine with peanut butter and whipped cream! Delicious!


Ingredients (for two servings):
-1 ripe banana
-1/3 cup oats
-1/4 cup cottage cheese (or yogurt)
-1 egg white
-1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
1. Blend all in a blender (I used my amazing Ninja!) until smooth
2. Pour onto hot griddle and cook
3. Lick out batter bowl like you're 5 years old (completely optional, but oh so fun!)
4. Top with deliciousness-i.e. peanut butter, jelly, syrup, more cottage cheese, fresh fruit...need I go on?!





Last bite... :'( Tear!

Let me know: What is something that you get a craving for sometimes that just cannot be stopped? Mine is frozen yogurt! Mmmm Mmm Mmm!
