I love pancakes.
If asked what one meal I would have for the rest of my life – I say warm, fluffy pancakes.
And I wouldn’t get sick of them, because there are just so many different ways to do them.
This week, I was craving a simple, healthy, flourless recipe for pancakes.
I’ve come up with oatmeal-banana pancakes – the banana acts as the perfect sweetener, instead 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, shaved almonds, and garnish with chopped blueberries or strawberries.
This is a perfect fix for breakfast in bed, and is a much healthier and more filling alternative to conventional flour-based pancakes.
