Bunch of bananas

Before I post the pancake recipe, here are some fun facts about bananas!

Bananas help fight depression. They are packed with Tryptophan which is an essential amino acid for the human body. When ingested, the Tryptophan is then converted to serotonin which is a neurotransmitter in the brain known to lift mood levels.

Bananas are great to eat as a pre-workout snack! It’ll give you energy and sustain your blood sugar.

Ladies! Bananas are helpful with PMS and cramps. It also helps fight against osteoporosis by counteracting calcium loss and helps builds strong bones. This is essential for us since studies have shown that women are at a higher risk of suffering from osteoporosis than men.

Bananas are a natural antacid which helps against GERD, acid reflux, and heartburn.

Bananas help you feel more alert due to its high levels of potassium. Eat a banana in the morning rather than drinking coffee or eat a banana before an exam and you’ll be good to go!

And here it is! The two ingredient pancake recipe!

All you need is:
1 Banana
1 Whole Egg

That’s it! Mash the banana, mix the two ingredients using a blender, put your pan on low heat, spray some Pam on your pan and pour on some of the batter! Wait a minute or two, flip the pancake and you’re done!
It is super easy and super yummy!

Also, instead of using syrup, I would suggest using a bit of honey instead. It’s a natural sweetener which is a better alternative as opposed to syrups that contains high levels of fructose which can cause obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

Enjoy eating this healthy meal! Good luck ~
