I’m a sucker for cake and if I can have it for breakfast it’s a bonus! While I’m trying to limit my cake intake I think that pancakes are the perfect breakfast or brunch treat to have once in a while. This banana pancake recipe is yummy and not too naughty, only a little.
2 ripe bananas
1 cup (aprox 250ml) buttermilk
1 tablespoon of sugar or agave nectar
A dash of vanilla extract
1 cup (aprox 65g) of self raising flour
Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
Mash up the ripe bananas
Add to the mashed bananas, a beaten egg, vanilla, buttermilk, sugar (or agave) mix well
Slowly mix in the flour and cinnamon, keeping the batter light and fluffy
If you have time, leave the batter to sit for 30 mins
Heat a pan and make the pancakes whatever size you like, I love making tiny ones as they’re so cute and they make me feel less guilty about cake for breakfast.
These pancakes may be a little naughty but there are some benefits in this particular recipe.
Bananas are full of potassium which helps protect your cardiovascular system. Buttermilk sounds very fatty but in fact it’s really low in fat and contains no butter, this is a cultured milk and generally contains only 1-2% fat. Adding cinnamon not only makes the pancakes taste extra special but cinnamon is great for the heart, blood sugar and the brain.
I hope you try these pancakes and share your thought below.
