BANANA PANCAKES

One of my favourite recipes at the moment is banana pancakes.

Everyone loves pancakes right? Well, these ones are slightly healthier than your average sugar and nutella coated pancake because they are made from two (three if you want) healthy ingredients, bananas and eggs.

Pancake Benefits
Bananas are one of my favourite fruits and are really good for you. Firstly, they are a great source of energy but they are also a great source of potassium which can improve your cardiovascular health (heart and blood pressure), as well as bone health. Additionally, they are high in manganese, which can improve your digestive health and immune system.

Eggs usually get a pretty bad rep for being high in cholesterol. However, despite the cholesterol in eggs, they are really nutrient dense. They are a really great source of protein, especially for those who don't eat meat, and they are rich in vitamins B2, B6, B12, A, D, E and K. Oh, and they are a great source of zinc, iron and copper too!

So yeah, these pancakes delicious AND pretty amazing for you.


Ingredients

2 Eggs (I've used British Lion Eggs* but any are fine), 1 banana, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (optional) and oil of choice for the pan!

Directions - you can make one big pancake or a few smaller ones

1. Peel the banana and mash it up in a bowl/jug.

2. Add the eggs and beat with the mashed banana. Also add the baking powder here if you prefer a fluffier texture.

3. Add the oil/butter/spray to the frying pan, then pour the pancake mix into the bowl and fry the mixture, just like a regular pancake. Remember to flip half way through :)

4. Plate up and add toppings of your choice! I love natural nut butter or fresh fruit, but the choice is yours ;) For this batch, I managed to make two smaller pancakes which do look a little rustic, but oh well!



5. Enjoy!
