Banana Pancakes

20140718_144950Who doesn’t love pancakes?!

These are fantastic; versatile, so easy to make AND they taste incredibly naughty but are oh-so-good! One of your 5-a-day, a great source of protein and oats to keep those hunger pangs at bay!

Ingredients
One banana
Two eggs
Teaspoon of cinnamon
Two tablespoons of oats

Method
1. Whisk the two eggs in a bowl big enough to hold all the ingredients.

2. Slice the banana into the eggs and mash with a fork, masher or blender. Make sure both ingredients are well combined.

3. Add the cinnamon and oats and whisk until you have a smooth mixture.

4. Heat some oil in a pan (I use spray oil – you need very little) and add a small amount of mixture to the pan. (*TIP: Pour mixture slowly to keep a circle shape*)

5. Cook on a low-medium heat til the pancake is solid enough for you to flip it (around 2-3 minutes per side).

6. Keep going until you run out of mixture and top with whatever your preference!

If you have a sweet tooth, try making them with a ripe or overripe banana, these taste naturally sweeter and you won’t need any added sugar.

My favourite topping is low fat natural yoghurt and fresh fruit (making it 2 of your 5-a-day!). This morning it was blueberries!

Do let me know what you think!

I love receiving your pictures of my recipes, thank you!
