Just in time for Pancake Tuesday, these are two family favourites with a healthy twist. My grandchildren love them.
2 ripe bananas 🍌
2 eggs 🥚
1/2 cup milk 🥛 (of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla
1.5 cups oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt (I tend not to add this)
Butter for cooking (or oil if dairy free)
Blitz. Let batter sit for 5-10 minutes
Heat frying pan to medium heat and brush with butter or oil. I use a wee pastry brush.
Spoon batter into pan and cook 👩🍳 for a few minutes until you see a few bubbles. Flip and cook till coloured on base.
Pro tip. Stat with medium heat then turn heat to low so that pancakes don’t over colour (burn) while still cooking on the inside.
Makes 9 pancakes
12g protein, 12 g fibre for 3 pancakes
75g Besan (Chickpea) (high in protein and a nice nutty flavour) and 25g Coconut flour
NOTE - You could use 100g of any flour here instead of this mix
25g coconut sugar (any sugar would do or xylitol a good option)
150 ml milk
I tbs coconut oil melted
1tsp baking soda
I weighed and mixed the dry ingredients the night before. In the morning Ava (6) cracked the egg 👩🍳 (her favourite job) and mixed in the oil, Maeve (3) mixed in the milk 👩🍳 and we let it sit for 10 minutes before Granny (ME) 🧑🍳 cooked and flipped.
Served with grated apple 🍎, berries 🍓, and a wee skiff of icing sugar
