Paleo Banana Pancakes

Sticking to a diet plan can sometimes be very challenging, but it doesn’t mean you have to cut down on some of your favorite foods. I was craving some pancakes a few weeks ago, and thought I should find a healthy way to make them I simply looked up some Paleo receipts and found this Banana Pancakes one that I really enjoyed. I was surprised how it held its texture and form, considering that it didn’t have all the ingredients a normal pancake would have The receipt is simple: 1. 2 large ripe bananas  2.  4 eggs 3. 1/4 teaspoon baking power (optional) Cooking time: Cook until they begin to bubble and hold their shape! Flip pancake and let it cook for 30-45 seconds on each side Added ingredients: Raspberry marmalade, cocoa power and cinnamon and to top it off added pure honey. SIMPLE AS THAT! Now keep in mind, this is not your average pancake! It will taste a lot different, but it does satisfy that graving.               …
