It’s no secret that I burn my pancakes. Since my initial burn-the-skillet morning, I have had several attempts at trying to make pancakes. All have been unsuccessful, and I ended up relying on the microwave. So I decided it was time to for go the skillet all together and go straight to the oven. Bring on the oven pancakes:

Peanut Butter & Banana Oven Pancakes

Edible Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp (same as 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp) of flour *See Note 1
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • sweetener (I used 3 packets of stevia)
  • ¼ cup liquid **See Note 2
  • ¼ cup egg whites
  • ⅓ cup canned pumpkin

*Note 1:I used 3 tbsp hemp protein powder, and 2 tbsp of Kamut flour. The hemp protein powder makes everything dark, hence why the pancakes look like the color of chicory root.
** Note 2:
I used ¼ cup of cold brewed cinnamon chai tea and ⅛ tsp of coconut oil. Instead you could use ¼ cup of almond breeze

Engineering Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 420 F
  2. Mix dry ingredients
  3. Add wet ingredients, and mix
  4. Spread in a (sprayed) baking dish. The dish should be large enough so that the mixture can be spread thin.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until passes toothpick test

What no banana is banana peanut butter oven pancakes?! That’s only because I didn’t have any banana’s in the house, so I opted for the extract. Feel free to try subbing the canned pumpkin for mashed banana though.

{Topped with peanut flour sauce, and served with a side of apples & grapefruit}

The first great thing about this oven pancake recipe is that they’re packed with 18 grams of protein (and the peanut flour sauce will add another 8 to that)! The second great thing about this oven pancake recipe? You don’t have to clean the frying pan! Sure there is still the baking dish to deal with, but the frying pan is my least favorite thing to clean!
