These gluten free banana pancakes are filled with Greek yogurt and rolled up like tacos! They’re a fun, healthy breakfast for only 100 calories per taco!
Oh hey you morning-hating person! Guess what? SUPER FUN TIMES AWAIT YOU. !!!
Like, super fun times in the form of Greek yogurt protein pancakes that have been TACO-ized, and SHOVED full of MORE smooth, vanilla Greek yogurt (protein HEY YOU!) and sweet, creamy bananas with a tasty sprinkle of spicy cinnamon. I mean, let’s just be rational people here mmkay? Waking up does NOT get better than getting to fill your I-just-woke-up-feed-me-RIGHT-NOW hungry-breakfast mouth with TACOS.
But, like. Pancakes. That are TACOS. See folks? Fun times AHEAD.
I just noticed I capitalized TACOS about eleventy billion times in the first 2 seconds of this point. Too much? Of course not.
Besides being my newest obsession (you know my <3 <3 <3 x 100 for anything of the pancake variety) these naturally-sweetened stacks of fluffy golden-brown perfection are A-L-S-O for a REALLY good cause!
I’m partnering with the American Dairy Association and 10 other bloggers in August to help the American Dairy Association Mideast give gallons of milk to children and families across the country! The American Dairy Association Mideast will donate $1 to the Great American Milk Drive for every “like,” comment or share each of the bloggers’ 10 recipes receive on its Facebook page. So, you should probably go and like ALL the photos. Comments are bomb-tastic too. How about a share?
You know, Just sayin’.
You know my thoughts on the important of eating breakfast. And, can I just be super-duper honest with you for a second? I just don’t GET people who don’t eat breakfast. I wake up and preeeeety much contemplate eating my arms off every.single.morning because I don’t know if I can wait the 3 minutes it takes to make my oatmeal. That might (read: is) an exaggeration, but you FEEL ME.
Breakfast. Pancakes. I <3 them. I need them. I want them NOW. Maybe even for dinner? JUST EAT THEM ALREADY.
Are you ready to have your party just DOWN POURED ON? Let’s do a warning: 3….2….1.
It’s almost time to send the kidlets back to land of MATH. Which means you might have to help them solve aforementioned math equations.
Honest moment, the sequel, this is the true reason there are no baby FFF’s rollin’ around. The thought of doing any sort of division or multiplication? JUST NO.
BUT, if I put myself in mommy hoods imaginary shoes and pretended to have some imaginary little tykes of my own, I would want them to do the best that they possibly could. It’s been show that when kids eat breakfast, they have higher test scores, improved daily attendance PLUSPLUSPLUS better class participation. So, my hypothetical imaginary kids? They be eating ALL the perfectly crisp on the outside-and soft and fluffy on the inside pancakes that are piled HIGH with bananas.
What kid doesn’t like banana pancakes? What HUMAN in general doesn’t like banana pancakes?
Pancake tacos. Still obsessing. Don’t mind me.
Actually do mind me because I want to remind you of my trip with the American Dairy Association Mideast last year, where I FIRST hand got to go back to school (no math involved, DO NOT WORRY) and eat school breakfast with some students.
I LOVE that schools here in ‘Merica are doing school breakfast. We NEVER had that growing up in Canada, and it ensures a nutritious start to every single day. Oh and guess what we ate at this school breakfast experience?
PANCAKES. OBVIIIIIII. ?<— See See SEE! Kids LOVE THEM. IToldYouSo.
Especially when they’re fun and have those good-for-you-wholesome-oatmeal vibes. AND, they’re tacos.
P.s don’t get any ideas about just making “normal person” pancakes and just putting the Greek yogurt ON TOP. And don’t even THINK about using, dare I say it, a fork and KNIFE.
Friends don’t let friends taco with cutlery.
Greek Yogurt Banana Pancakes Tacos
For the tacos:
- 1/2 Cup Oat flour 50g
- 1/2 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon + additional for topping
- 1/2 Cup Very ripe banana mashed (about 1 medium banana, or 120g)
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 Large egg
- 1/4 Cup Skim milk
- 1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Non-fat Vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 Large banana sliced
- 1 Cup Non-fat Vanilla Greek yogurt
- Spray a large griddle with cooking spray and heat to 350 degrees, or medium heat.
- In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, honey, vanilla, egg, milk and Vanilla Greek yogurt until smooth, and only a few lumps from the banana remain.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient and mix until just combined.
- Drop the batter by scant 1/4 cup measurements onto the heated griddle, and quickly spread out thinly with the back of a spoon. These are supposed to be thin and "tortilla-like" not big and puffy.
- Cook the pancakes until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 4-5 minutes.
- Fill each pancake with about 2 Tbsp of vanilla Greek yogurt, a few slices of banana and a pinch of cinnamon.
