Almond Banana Pancakes

I normally make recipes for one because I never want food to go to waste and in my house, I am the only one on a healthy journey everyone else loves to enjoy whatever they are craving. Not that I don’t enjoy what I crave I do but I always find ways to make it as healthy as possible.

On weekends I definitely indulge because I have to hang out with family and friends so enjoy what is available as long as I don’t overdo it. I am sharing this because people always ask me what to do when they are hanging out with friends and all, but I always say one day and one meal hurt nobody its what you do after that affects your whole journey.

That being said, I love pancakes and ever since the day I learned that I don’t need regular flour to make them, I am constantly looking for different ways to make them as healthy as possible. I had a lot of leftover almond pulp from making homemade almond milk and because of that, I decided to make some almond banana pancakes which turned out so amazing.


Saturdays are for brunch and Sunday mornings are for breakfast.

Recipe

ALMOND BANANA PANCAKES

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup of almond pulp from homemade almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat.
  2. While the pan is heating up, add all the ingredients except the almond butter and honey to a blender or mash the banana in a bowl then add the rest of the ingredients and mix them all together. Also make sure not to use the whole banana, leave 1/4 so you can use it for toppings,
  3. Add the batter to the pan to make the pancakes, for 1 pan pancake, I used 2 tablespoons.
  4. Cook on one side until you see bubbles forming at the top then you can flip them, or until browned on both sides.
  5. Plate the pancakes, add the almond butter and 4 slices of the leftover banana then drizzle with honey.
  6. ENJOY!

 

Tip: I add the coconut oil to the pancake batter so I don’t have to put it on the pan as you end up using more oil when put directly on the pan.
