There is nothing better than waking up to warm, fluffy pancakes.
Of course, that requires someone to make them for you, but I’m always happy to do the hard work if it means I get the largest one. This week, I was having pancake cravings so I used my recipe for simple, healthy, flourless recipe for pancakes. I like to substitute white flour for oatmeal because oats are full of fibre, very nutritious, and filling, meaning that the pancakes are sure to keep me full until lunchtime.
The banana also acts as a sweetener instead of cane sugar, whilst providing the fluffy texture
I’ve come up with oatmeal-banana pancakes – the banana acts as the perfect healthy sweetener, whilst adding a creamy texture to the batter.
You only need 4 ingredients 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 (vegan option: 1 chia egg)
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 tsp baking powder
Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse together until smooth and runny. Add a dribble of milk (I use almond) if the mixture is too dry. Sometimes I also like to add powdered peanut butter for some nutty flavour.
Grease pan with coconut oil, and pour batter into pancake shapes over medium heat. Wait for them to bubble before you flip!
For toppings I usually go for a compotee of mixed berries: mix 1 cup of mixed berries, 1/2 tbsp maple syrup and cinnamon together. Microwave for 30 seconds and then stir shaved almonds or coconut shavings through.
This is a perfect fix for breakfast in bed, and it’s filling and contains nutritious ingredients!
