When I first set out to make these pancakes, I thought it would be a piece of cake. The slight catch was I haven’t eaten pancakes for years (Now I have no idea why!) so I had forgotten what the classic pancake tasted like. What I try to do with all my healthy recipes is to make it taste even better than the typical unhealthy version. Sometimes it’s a breeze but others can be slightly trickier! Needless to say I had the itch so I wasn’t going to rest until this recipe was perfected!
This banana pancake recipe is a result of 3 attempts and a morning full of tasting and re-doing, can’t say it was the most awful morning I’ve spent cooking! I am pleased to say it worked out and I’m very happy with the results. A completely refined-sugar and gluten free pancake, what else could you ask for? ;)
It’s important to know that although bananas are high in sugar, you have a substantial amount of protein in the pancakes from the eggs so it’s an all-round win-win. The protein will keep you fuller for longer and you’ll get the quick-release sugar from the fruit. If you have a sweet tooth like me, just try not to smother the pancakes in honey! A small amount won’t hurt but an excess of honey will cause your blood sugar to rise very quickly and that’s not a healthy breakfast in simple terms.
You can of course adapt the recipe as you please by adding coconut flakes or fresh blueberries baked in the actual pancake. Tag me in your inventive creations @LeanLivingGirl !
