While special occasions may call for something a bit more advanced, everyday breakfast recipes should be simple and nutritious yet still taste delicious. If you're looking for a speedy and tasty option that will keep you full all morning, you've come to the right place.
Behold: mbg's collagen and banana pancakes. They're fun to make, dairy-free, and packed with skin-loving ingredients.*
How to make Collagen & Banana Pancakes.
Makes 3 pancakes
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
- 1 scoop mbg beauty & gut collagen+
- In a large bowl, mash up your banana until smooth.
- Then place the remaining ingredients in the bowl and whisk together until well combined.
- Use about ⅓ of the batter to make each pancake.
- After they're cooked, add your favorite toppings.
Why add mbg's collagen?
Adding a scoop of the mbg beauty & gut collagen+ powder will make this breakfast even more nutrient-dense. Not only will it add 17.7 grams of grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen peptides, but you'll also be getting a hefty dose of other important beauty and gut-centric bioactives, micronutrients, and antioxidants: Biotin, for example, is top-notch for healthy hair and nails; we also include vitamins C and E to enhance your body's collagen production and natural antioxidant defenses.*
After that comes L-glutamine, which provides a building block for protein and is a preferred fuel for the gut. We also include curcuminoids from turmeric root extract and sulforaphane from broccoli seed extract in our blend to help support detoxification and combat oxidative stress.*
Finally, this powder also contains hyaluronic acid, which is the key molecule responsible for keeping skin naturally hydrated1. Think of it as doubling down on inside-out skin hydration.*
A bonus? This powder doesn't leave behind a chalky aftertaste, which makes it an even better addition to your pancake recipe. If you want to switch it up, opt for mbg's chocolate option for a rich (but sugar-free) taste from organic cocoa. Bananas and chocolate are a fabulous pair, wouldn't you say?
Everyday breakfast recipes should be simple and packed with good-for-you ingredients. These collagen-banana pancakes fit the bill, with tons of added benefits, thanks to mbg's winning collagen powder.
