Another Banana Omelet

You already know that I am quite enamoured of the Banana Omlet recipe that I posted recently.

I have been doing a bit more experimenting with it, trying to find a way to make it a little less calorie-laden and came up with something pretty good. 

On days when I want that higher protein breakfast, I will still make up my original recipe, but this one is great for those mornings when I want just a bit of something before heading off to my busy day.  It is very tasty... and the banana flavor is much more apparent than in the orginal Banana Omelet.

Give it a try, I would love to know what you think.

I made it this way for The Captain and me, but of course you could halve the ingredients and use a smaller pan.  I served it with a bit of soynut butter on the top.

And if you have a frozen banana, great, just make sure it is thoroughly thawed before you start mixing.  Don't use too high a heat setting - the sugar in the banana will burn fairly easily.


Another Banana Omelet

  2. Pour mixture into a skillet that has been coated with non-stick spray and set over MEDIUM heat.

Do you think this is something you would make?  If you do, I would love to know if you liked it.


  1. I love sweet eggs! :) I hate bananas but I love making Roasted Butternut Squash Omelets and Pumpkin Omelets! :)

    1. I have been thinking this would be good with squash or other pumpkin, too. Good to know you have tried that already.

  2. This recipe will be a giant leap of faith for me Elle! Can't wrap my head around bananas and eggs together, but if you say so, I'm game!

    1. I hope you will try it and let me know what you think! The banana flavor isn't really strong, but offers some sweetness.

  3. I love eggs and bananas. Great mix :)

  4. I make a paleo pancake that is just a mashed banana mixed with an egg and some almond butter, so I know that your way will be fantastic, and less likely to stick to the pan (one serving covered -> no need to flip vs 4 mini cakes in need of flipping)

    1. Yeah, I think actually flipping them would be a lot harder than just folding them to serve. A lid helps with omelets, for sure.

  5. I think the idea of a banana omelette is quite possibly genius. I have never craved omelettes in the morning because I'm more of a sweet person in the morning as opposed to savoury, and this sounds like a solution to all my woes!
