My favourite breakfast consists of nothing other than a huge stack of pancakes, American style, fluffy and filling. I know that it isn’t the healthiest choice so I decided to try out an alternative that would satisfy my flapjack craving. I made flourless banana pancakes. It turned out to be a light, easy, no guilt breakfast. They were absolutely great but I will say that they aren’t a replacement for the real deal, just an alternative.
2 ripe bananas
1/8 teaspoon Gluten Free Baking Powder (can be left out)
(yields 3-4 pancakes)
In a bowl beat two eggs
Add baking powder to egg mixture
In a separate bowl mash the peeled ripe bananas (lumps are ok as it gives the pancakes it’s fluffiness)
Combine the egg mixture with the bananas
Stir until totally mixed or place in a blender and lightly pulse the mixture
Cook on a hot griddle or pan just as you would traditional pancakes (flip the pancake to cook through the other side).
Plate them up and top with butter, maple syrup and blueberries. I used Cloister Whipped Honey with Cinnamon instead of syrup and it woke this dish up making it absolutely YUMMY!
*I have not mastered perfectly round pancakes but they are delicious just the same!*
Mmmmm Mmmmm Goood! Makes me think of one of my favourite artists, Jack Johnson singing “Banana Pancakes”
