these pancakes were good.
and not just ‘healthy’ food good, but actually delicious.
if you ate them you wouldn’t be able to tell they don’t have any refined flour, sugar or butter.
(and they’re gluten free!)
now the best part about pancakes that are healthy is that you can have them anytime without feeling guilty because hey, they’re healthy. and they’re quick and easy too. win, win, win.
i really hope you make them. (like now) because once you make them, you probably won’t want to ever make the normal white flour-butter-sugar-egg combo pancakes ever again. i swear, they’re really not lacking in the sweetness department but if you like your pancakes sweeter just add sweeter toppings 🙂
and have fun with the toppings! GO CRAZY! because the pancakes themselves are so nutritious and good for you, you can even use crazy toppings like chocolate chips and sprinkles.
more topping ideas: nuts, nut butters, honey, coconut cream, dried fruit, chocolate chips, sprinkles, banana slices, strawberries, chocolate syrup, maple syrup, whipped cream, butter, toasted coconut, granola
note: for the flour, I used chickpea flour (besan) but you can use oat flour (oats ground into a powder) or buckwheat flour too. (if you’re gluten free make sure your oats are gf)
now on to the recipe!
(makes 1 serving which is around 4 pancakes)
1 large-ish banana, mashed
3 tablespoons flour (see note above)
2 tablespoon yogurt or 1/2 tablespoon yogurt and 1.5 tablespoon coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp honey
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)
1.5 tsp chia seeds (optional)
olive oil/canola oil to cook
mix the mashed banana, the egg, yogurt/coconut milk, honey and vanilla essence in a bowl
add in the flour one spoon at a time and then the baking powder, cocoa powder and the chia seeds.
heat a fry pan and spray/spread with oil
when oil is hot drop in roughly 1/4 of the batter (2 spoons?) onto the pan in a circular shape
lower the heat
(i make 2 pancakes at a time but depending on the size of your pan and your cooking ability, cook the pancakes at the rate you want)
little bubbles should appear and after around twenty seconds when the pancake is holding together, flip it (lift the edge with your spatula to check whether its ready)
cook until both sides are lightly browned and then take out on to a plate, stacking the pancakes
add toppings to your pancake stack!
(my pancakes have coconut milk, honey, nuts and dried apricots on top)
