While McDonald’s has officially announced all day breakfast, I’m making my own (stay away McGriddle, you delicious, heart clogging sandwich!) – banana pancakes. I came across these years ago and it was a weird concept to me. Pancakes without any flour? Well, although this recipe isn’t quite the same as having fluffy, buttermilk pancakes, they are a healthy alternative! All it takes is three simple ingredients.
Peel the banana and mash it into a bowl with a fork (or potato masher). Then, crack the two eggs and mix well.
Add a bit of oil to a non-stick pan on medium-low heat. Add some of the banana-egg mixture and cook until it’s stable enough to flip. Continue cooking until the other side is also golden brown and the pancake is no longer watery.
If you want circular pancakes, you may have to help guide it (translation: use a spatula to help reshape it as the batter tends to be a bit watery).
Although I don’t personally endorse a low-carb diet (everything in moderation is my motto), these banana pancakes are great to have. They’re moist and healthy and easy to make. Just ensure you mix the batter properly, otherwise some pancakes will taste more eggy like a strange banana flavoured omelette. Whether you decide to eat it as a healthy breakfast (or snack), if you want to be naughty you can add some maple syrup or chocolate syrup on top. Enjoy! 🙂
