Kitchen Tools You Need For Easy Pancakes
Sure, you can always make your pancakes by mashing the banana and eggs together in a bowl using a fork. That counts as an arm workout as far as I’m concerned… but personally I don’t like big banana bits in my pancakes. I’m picky like that.
My favorite way to make my pancake batter is to throw my ingredients into my blender and let it do the work. That way you get smooth pancake batter with no big bits. Gotta love it.
The other awesome part about making pancakes in your blender is you literally pour the batter right into the pan. So much control and way less mess. I’m all about doing fewer dishes!
I use a Vitamix 5200 Series Blender for all of my smoothies and pancakes and highly recommend it. I’ve also heard from clients that this Ninja Professional Blender does an amazing job of buzzing up all kinds of recipes from homemade veggie burgers to green smoothies.

Health Benefits of Eggs
- Eggs are an excellent source of high quality protein to help you build muscle and keep you feeling full longer. A large egg has 6 grams of protein. Protein also helps prevent muscle loss if you’re trying to lose weight, boosts healing and is needed for a strong immune system. Kerpow!
Iron and Vitamin B12
- Eggs contain iron and vitamin B12, nutrients that are needed for red blood cell formation.
- Eggs (the yolks, specifically) one of the few food sources of vitamin D.
- Although our bodies produce vitamin D when we spend time in the sun, in Canada and other countries in the northern latitudes we may need additional vitamin D for bone health and to fight cancer. There is some debate over how much vitamin D we need in a day, but we shouldn’t have more than 4000 international units (IU) per day. This is important to know if you are taking vitamin D supplements.
- Eggs contain a nutrient called choline that is essential for the brain to be able to send messages to your muscles.

2 Ingredient Protein Pancakes
Are you ready to make the easiest and yummiest pancakes ever? What are you waiting for! Happy breakfast and brunch to you and yours!
I love to top my 2 ingredient protein pancakes (all pancakes, really) with some mixed frozen berries I heat up in a pan. That way I get not only the berry goodness and fiber, but plenty of naturally sweet sauce to pour over my pancakes. #Winning.
My latest obsession is sprinkling unsweetened shredded coconut over my pancakes.
