Eatin' Banana Pancakes

 Happy Friday! It's another rainy day here in Southern California...and while I'm the millionth blogger to comment on the weather, I must say it is a perfect day to cuddle up, turn on Gossip Girl, and eat some scrumptious banana pancakes. If you don't know much about me, here, I'll give you a fun fact. I eat pancakes everyday. Everyday, Emily?! Why, yes, yes I do :). I have a chocolate version to these pancakes that are just as yummy...but I like to switch them up once in awhile.

I'm gluten intolerant...haven't eaten any gluten since I've been 11. So if you need any help or suggestions on how to eat gluten-free, I'm your girl :). Since eating gluten free eliminates lots of carbs, its easier for me to stay on a low carb diet. I feel my best when I'm not eating many carbs. So I've made this pancake recipe that has only a couple carbs in the whole batch! They are super healthy, full of healthy fats and protein. That's why I can eat them everyday...but the main reason why I do eat them everyday is because they are just so darn good and they completely satisfy my sweet tooth!...well...almost always ;). Sometimes I just gotta eat that cookie dough. So without any further adieu, here's the recipe :)!
 
 Pancake Ingredients:
1/3 cup lowfat cottage cheese
2 eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
3-4 tablespoons stevia baking sweetener

Whipped Topping (optional): 
3 tablespoons Fage yogurt
Stevia packet
Walnuts

**Waldens Pancake Syrup**<----this syrup is amazing! I suggest try it. Zero carb. Zero sugar. GF.

1. combine the wet ingredients first, then add your stevia and protein powder. Mix real good then cook those suckers up in a skillet! 
2. Mix the whipped topping in a bowl and place on top for a yummy tart taste!
3. Drizzle the syrup over them and eat up!



 



So what is your favorite rainy day food? 
What is your favorite TV show at the moment?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    1. Aww Tiffany! Let me know if I help you with anything! Some of my most gluten free favorite treats are from Mariposa bakery. They're located in San Fran but they ship to here. They are probably the best gluten free I've ever tasted! I like to use Pamela's gf flour too :)

      Oh! And BJ's has a GF pizza... and pazookie! (which are both delicious!)

    1. Yes! Try these...if you can't find all the ingredients, you can try this recipe instead. It's a little easier to gather the ingredients :) Plus they are really good too! http://egoswick.blogspot.com/2013/01/healthy-reeses.html
