Yesterday morning my fridge was almost empty (the horror!) apart from some leftovers. I started to think what I could make for breakfast. I still had a couple of bananas and eggs left so I decided to make these delicious, fluffy pancakes.
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup of spelt/whole grain flour
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- pinch of salt
First, you need to mash the banana. The riper the banana, the easier this is. If you have unripe bananas but you still want to make these pancakes, you can soften the bananas in the microwaves (30 seconds at a time). After mashing the banana, you can add all the other ingredients. I used spelt flour in this recipe as it is, together with whole grain flour, the healthier option for white flour. Spelt and whole grain flour are high in fibre and contain no added sugars. For the milk I used coconut milk, but you can also use other types of milk (normal, soy, almond).
Bake the pancakes in a hot pan with olive oil or butter, but turn down the heat a bit while baking as you don't want to burn your pancakes. I approximately baked them 2-3 minutes on one side and 1-2 minutes on the other side. You will get 4 to 5 little pancakes out of this batter. Top the pancakes however you want. I added some fruit, honey and cinnamon. Enjoy!
