Healthy Flourless Banana Pancake Recipe

Every now and again I have a sudden craving for pancakes, however, with all the usual flour and cane sugar I feel a little guilty eating them too often.

So, I devised a simple and healthier alternative recipe: Banana Pancakes. These use banana as a sweetener to avoid spoonfuls of cane sugar.

You only need 3 ingredients for the batter and this recipe makes around 3 medium sized pancakes. Each pancake is very filling, which saves you from snacking for the rest of the day.

You will need:

  •  1/2 a very ripe banana
  •  1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal

Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse together until smooth and runny. Add a dribble of milk (I use almond) if mixture is too dry.

Then pour into a hot pan, greased with coconut oil, and fry until golden brown.

Lots of toppings are delicious with this recipe, but I usually go for a tablespoon of vanilla yogurt and garnish with chopped blueberries or strawberries.

This is a perfect fix for a nice breakfast in bed, and is a much healthier and more filling alternative to conventional flour-based pancakes.

Enjoy!
