Healthy banana pancakes

These pancakes are delicious and moist, best of all they contain no refined flour or sugar, I have included egg white but if you omit the coconut flour and use a cup of oats instead, you can exclude the egg white, just keep the pancakes very small so they don’t break apart when you turn them. They don’t need a sauce but in this photo I have topped with warm blueberries and a sugar free blueberry coulis. I also added some blueberries in the pancakes while cooking.

You’ll need:

3/4 cup of *wholegrain rolled oats

1/4 cup of *coconut flour

1 cup of *almond milk

2 bananas (ripe)

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 egg white (see note above if you are vegan)

*Coconut oil (for the frypan)

1/4 cup of blueberries to add into the pancakes while cooking (optional)

*Find these items in the health food section of your supermarket, or try your health food grocer.

Method:

Combine banana and almond milk in a blender and blast on high until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients into the blender and blast again until smooth.

Heat the pan on medium and add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, add 1/4 cup of mixture or a bit less and fry gently, the first side will need a few minutes, you’ll see it’s ready to turn when the edges start to brown. Turn gently, the other side won’t need as long.

Serve warm with or without a sauce, or keep in the fridge for a healthy snack.

Yours in health,
