I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I tried to sleep again, but the attempt went in vain. I was SO hungry, not having the evening meal yesterday. My mind was full of the image of my recent favourite food… the pancake.
This is very easy to make, and very tasty.
I don’t put banana every time, but it helps to sweeten the pancake naturally. Also, the wheat flour is totally optional. I added this today as I had some that needed using.
I had just enough light coming through when I started making these pancakes, and I ate them looking at the sky that was gradually getting lighter.
Now having finished all the pancakes, I am writing this with my satisfied stomach 🙂
No exact measurement for this recipe. You can just use the amount you would normally eat in your one portion.
For the pancake:
½ banana, sliced
Oat flour (grind jumbo or porridge oats in your blender/food processor)
Wholemeal plain flour (optional)
1 tsp ground flax seed
Oil for frying
For the topping:
½ banana, sliced
Sunflower seeds, toasted
Pumpkin seeds, toasted
Coconut nectar or your favourite sweetener
- Place ½ of sliced bananas in a bowl and lightly mash with a fork.
- Add flour(s), ground flax and a little water just enough to make a sticky dough. Mix well so the bananas are mashed further and incorporated into the mixture.
- Add more water to make the dough into pancake batter. When you scoop it up with a spoon, it drops slowly back into the bowl.
- Heat a frying pan and add some oil.
- Take some batter, drop it on the pan and make whatever shape/size you want.
- When you start to see some bubbles on the surface, turn it over to cook the other side.
- Place on the plate, sprinkle with some sliced banana, seeds, desiccated coconut and drizzle the sweetener. *Other topping option would be cacao nibs, any other fresh fruit or dry fruits, nuts or nut butters.
- Tuck in!
