Kitchen DIY: Banana Pancakes & Scrambled Egg Whites

breakfast

With the takeover of Pinterest and DIY projects, exploration of unique recipes has become a household trend. Having experienced my share of cooking disasters, I can appreciate a DIY success. This morning, deciding to take a healthier approach to breakfast, I went to an old faithful, flourless banana pancakes. I got this recipe from Tia Mowry-Hardrict’s cooking show Tia Mowry at Home on the Cooking Channel. I tried it, loved it and have since left “Just Add Water” pancake mix on the shelf.

I have been staying away from dairy but had eggs in my frig and a taste for an omelette. I decided to try something new and use only egg whites; another task that I had failed on previously but thank God today I was successful. As I have been informed by a few friends, I am not the only one who has attempted an omelette that later turned into scrambled eggs. So I scrambled those bad boys up with spinach making lemonade out of lemons (not literally). I started my day on a high note and a full, nutrition-filled tummy.

Check out the recipes below. Once you try them out, comment on this post or email us at disclosednative@gmail.com with your results.

Scrambled Egg Whites

2 eggs

1/2 cup chopped spinach

2 mixing bowls

Cooking spray

Small skillet

  • Crack egg. Transfer egg yoke over a bowl, from one shell to the next until all of egg white contents are in the bowl. Place egg yoke in a separate bowl. Do the same for second egg.
  • Place spinach in bowl with egg whites. Whisk until spinach is fully emerged in eggs.
  • Place skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking oil.
  • Pour the egg mixture into skillet. As eggs whiten, use a spatula to pull the ends from sticking to the skillet. Fold the eggs until cooked to your likeness.
