Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes... Who doesn't love them!
Here is a recipe for healthy banana pancakes which you can play around with. I will keep sharing my basic go-to recipes over the next few weeks on here, with lots of suggestions to adjust them to your personal preferences or just to alter to whatever you have in the fridge!
1 small ripe banana
1/2 cup oats
1 tbsp flaxseed
Splash almond milk (or any other plant based milk)
Optional for flavor, pick 1-3 of these:
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp raw cacao
1 tbsp lemon juice
Toppings used here:
- Serves 1 -
Mash the banana in a bowl. Add the eggs and whisk it all together with a splash of almond milk. Then add the oats, flaxseed and flavorings and let it all soak for a few minutes. Heat a good teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan and fry either a few smaller pancakes or one big one until golden!
Tip to flip over a big one: I sometimes slide the pancake out of the pan onto a big plate, place the pan on top and then turn it over so that the pancake doesn't break when flipping as they can get a bit heavy with the oats in them. I've ended up with scrambled pancakes a few too many times!
Then top with anything you like. I usually take some fruit, maybe some nuts, yoghurt and honey or almond butter.
