Carb-free banana pancakes

These pancakes are Blake Lively's favourite breakfast treat. Containing no flour, these pancakes are dairy and gluten-free and a great way to start your day with protein but still eat something sweet.

Carb-free Banana Pancakes

Serves two.

Contains 200 calories per serve (without syrup added to serve).


4 eggs (2 whole and 2 egg whites)
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 mashed banana
1 teaspoon of natural sweetener
1 teaspoon of olive oil
Olive oil spray


Mash the banana and add in the eggs, whipping together. Add in salt, cinnamon, vanilla, sweetner and oil.

Heat the pan to low heat an spray with oil. Pour mixture of either side of the pan to make two pancakes. This will leave half the mixture to make another two once these are cooked. Once the pancakes are cooked on one side (they will be bubbling and curling on the side) turn over and finish cooking for a few more minutes. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.

Serve with sugar-free maple syrup.
