Magic Pancakes with Bananas, Eggs and Yogurt

Those protein pancakes made with banana and egg whites are good in theory, but when it comes to taste…well, they fall flat. Daphne Oz’s recipe for magic pancakes—from her new cookbook, Eat Your Heart Out—are just as filling and gluten free, but actually taste like the short stack you’re craving.

“I call these Magic Pancakes because I still cannot believe mixing together banana, eggs, yogurt and oatmeal can yield such luxurious results,” Oz writes. “I’ll be honest and tell you these pancakes first came about as my desperate attempt to get my kids to like the filling, fibrous goodness that is oatmeal. That used to involve enough honey, butter and cream to do away with any health value whatsoever…not anymore! The kids do demand maple syrup on theirs, but I fell in love with them all on their own and, should you choose to use it, the date syrup has a uniquely adult earthiness to it that hits the spot.”

You can find date syrup online and in most grocery stores, or go the extra mile and make the recipe from Oz’s cookbook.
