Tuesday, February 17, is Pancake Day! If you’re torn between your love for pancakes and the need to remain healthy, this banana pancake recipe is a must-try.
It is the perfect breakfast and/or dessert pancake. Not only is it quick and healthy, but it is also a cheap recipe with some ingredients optional, making it a very creative plate.
For one person, you will need:
1 big or 2 small bananas
5 tablespoons of porridge oats
2 teaspoons of desiccated coconut (optional)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
1 teaspoon of butter (optional)
- Peal the banana and place it in a bowl. Split the banana in two and use a fork to smash it until only some visible banana bits are left. Mix in the egg until the consistency looks creamy.
- Preheat the hob in medium-heat and add the butter to the frying pan.
- Add all the dry ingredients into the bowl and mix (if using an electric mixer the batter will look similar to a regular pancake, it is optional to use either method). Then pour the mixture into the frying pan.
- While waiting for the pancake to get golden brown, chop some strawberries on the side.
- Flip the pancake to match the golden side, make sure the pancake has gotten a firm consistency, or else when flipped it will break.
- When the pancake is ready, place it on a plate and add the chopped strawberries on top.
- For the grand finale, add a big z shape of honey.
