I know this may sound crazy, but I am not a huge fan of pancakes. With that being said, I love banana pancakes. The other crazy thing is that I don’t like bananas either. So, who would have thought that banana pancakes would become my favorite healthy breakfast. Anyways, these pancakes are so simple and fast to make, along with being delicious!
(you may switch out the ingredients to fit your diet)
- 2 bananas
- 2 eggs
- 4-5 tbsp coconut flakes
- honey (optional)
- vanilla extract (optional)
- 1-2 tbsp Chia seeds
Add your bananas to a medium size bowl and mash with a fork. Once your bananas are at an evenly mashed consistency, you can add your eggs. Simply stir the two together until combined. Then, time to add your coconut flakes, which act as the flour or the binder to keep the two eggs and banana together. Once these are all mixed together, you have your batter. It may seem a bit lumpy, but it will turn out fine in the end. If your batter is too liquidy, you can add more coconut flakes to even out the consistency. If you want to go super simple, you can cook your pancakes from here. Each time I make this recipe, I have slowly found different ingredients I like to add. For example, I will add some honey, since I love the flavor of honey and the sweetness it brings. I would highly recommend adding Chia seeds if you have them. They don’t change the flavor, but they do improve the health benefits you will get from this breakfast, setting you up for a better and healthier day! I like to add vanilla extract since it brings that little something I love into these pancakes. You can swap out ingredients and add ingredients if you want as well. Once you have added all your ingredients, heat up a pan over low-medium heat. Adjust the heat as needed. Pour small amounts into the pan to create the pancakes (depending on the size pancake you like). Once they begin to form bubbles, you should flip them. Be aware that it is much faster to cook the second side than it is the first side, so once you have flipped the pancake, be ready to take them off the stove quickly! When you are done with your pancakes, you can top them with whatever you want. Personally, I love to drizzle them with honey and then add more coconut and chia. Sometimes, during the winter I will add cinnamon to the pancake mix and sprinkle some on top as well!
If you make these, please be sure to send me a picture, it would make my day to see them! Thank you so much for reading this post, and I hope you get to try these out soon! Make sure to come back for another post next week!- Suki <3
