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.
