Here’s a high protein and low in fat breakfast recipe. This recipe makes just two pancakes so it is perfect for single people like me. I liked it enough I’ve made it twice.

½ a medium banana

This recipe is for all of you out there trying to eat healthy but are still feeling hungry. My sister is doing the doing the Mayo Diet where you don’t eat sugar (non-natural sugar) for 10 days. I’ve been watching my diet and tracking everything I eat for the last two months. Sugar is in everything – or added to everything to make it taste better according to the documentary Fed Up. I told my sister I thought she could eat this recipe if she use the Cary’s sugar free syrup my grandma has to use for diabetic reasons.
I ate three of these as was so full that I skipped lunch.
