Blender Banana Pancakes from Everyday Detox by Megan Gilmore.

Want an excuse to eat pancakes for breakfast every day? We’ve got it covered. This recipe is not only time-friendly, but these pancakes are also packed with protein and healthy fats. If that’s not a reason to swap out your cereal, we don’t know what is!

Perfect Pancakes from Eat Happy: 30 Minute Feel-good Food by Melissa Hemsley

Luckily gluten-free doesn’t mean pancake-free. Melissa Hemsley's quinoa flake batter is just as fluffy and delicious as its gluten-based counterpart and we love the suggested selection of toppings. Now pass that maple syrup!
