Clean Eating-Pancakes

Well we did another round of whole 30.  It ended last weekend.  I did pretty well.  Only cheats were pumpkin spice coconut milk in my coffee every morning.  The last day I had cake.  I did well total weight loss was 8 lbs.  I'm trying to maintain a 80/20 lifestyle and not spiral out of control and return to the land of poisonous food.  The draw of fast food is strong and easy, because it's EVERYWHERE.  The key is planning ahead, and to keep the food in my house clean.  I have discovered delicious clean pancakes, and I am amazed at how yummy they are.  You have to be a fan of crepe like pancakes which I am.  I haven't tried them on the ultimate critic, my 17 year old child yet.....but I love them and are obsessed with getting them perfect.  I am getting better at flipping them.  I'm really bad at the pancake flip, no matter the pancake. 

Paleo Banana Pancakes
1 Banana
2 Eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
dash of cinnamon
cooking oil

I smash the crap out of the banana till it's almost a liquid consistency.  Beat the eggs with the baking powder, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Mix all of it together.  I used Ghee for the cooking oil, but I've also used coconut oil.  Either work just fine.  You just need a little oil for each pancake.  This recipe makes 4 medium sized pancakes.  Basically 1 serving as they are thin.  Get some taste syrup and enjoy.  This would be good with blueberries.
