Healthy Banana & Walnut Pancakes

20160802_183426

O.K…..so I’ve seen various versions of these, mostly on healthy eating or fitness sites, always admiring but never made…….so, having some off bananas left I decided to give it a go.

They say on most sites 2 Ingredient pancake…..wasn’t sure about this, gave it a go and wasn’t impressed. Why? I hear you ask……..just using mashed up banana and eggs it left the pancake very soft and very hard to flip without looking like a scramble pancake. Here was my first try, they never kept their shape:-     20160802_084509   20160802_085006

I am a determined person and was not going to let it beat me……so here is my successful recipe combination:-

Makes 10 pancakes

2 bananas

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

4 tbsp plain flour

4 crushed up walnuts

1 tsp vanilla essence

 

  1. Firstly mashed up the bananas in a bowl, add in the crushed walnuts, baking powder (this helps them go a little bit fluffier), vanilla essence and mix.                                                                                         20160802_083113 20160802_083532  20160802_083655
  2. Whisk the eggs together then add to the mixture, mixing together.
  3. Once combined add in the flour and mix well, it should look like a pancake batter.   20160802_083800
  4. Heat a large pan to a medium heat and drop 2 tbsp’s of the mixture in, using the back of the spoon even out. Cook for about 2 mins each side or until golden brown.                                         20160802_085201    20160802_085225
  5. Plate up and serve.

I served with some Maple Syrup. You can add any ingredient you like to the mixture and serve it with anything of your choice. Yum healthy pancakes.
