Not much is happening here, so I thought I’d share a recipe with you today. This is one of the recipes I came up with during the budget challenge. It’s a recipe for the early birds and and Sunday brunches, because it takes a bit of time, but it’s absolutely worth it. These banana pancakes are pretty healthy if you don’t use too much oil to fry them. If you want to keep them healthy, serve with something like date syrup, if not maple syrup or sugar syrup are fine, or topped with sugar and cinnamon like french toast. This recipe serves one person, but just multiply the ingredients to make more.
To make these you’ll need:
- 1 banana, the riper the better
- 1 cup of soymilk (either store bought or homemade)
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup of oats
- oil for frying (optional)
Combine the banana, soymilk and half a cup of oats into a blender and blend until smooth. If it seems very thin add a bit more oats and blend again. Heat a frying pan with a small amount of oil (or without if it’s a good non-stick pan). Pour enough batter in the pan to form three small pancakes. Fry until the top is dry and the bottom is nicely browned, flip and fry for another couple of minutes until the other side is nicely browned too. The batter should make about 8 or 9 pancakes. If necessary reheat in the oven at 180ºC.
