banana pancakes healthy

Recipe

Yield: 14 medium-sized banana pancakes

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Total Time: 25 min

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk, or any type of unsweetened plant-based milk, or dairy milk

1/4 cup brown sugar, or granulated sugar

1 medium egg

a pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 small ripe bananas, or 1 & 1/2 medium bananas

Extra Tip: Caramelize the remaining banana! Cut the banana in half, add a little sugar, heat it, and use it on top of your pancakes! Perfect! To caramelize the banana you will need:

1/2 banana, sliced

1 tbsp brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl or hand mixer’s container add the egg, milk, salt, and sugar and mix.
  2. Add the flour and baking powder to the mixture and mix until smooth.
  3. Preheat a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
  4. Brush your pan with oil (coconut oil is perfect) lightly especially if your pan is non-stick.
  5. When heated, pour about 1/4 of a cup of the mixture into the pan and let it cook. Cook about 1 minute, flip when the top of the pancakes are bubbly and the sides look firm and goldish. Cook the other side for another 1 minute.
  6. The cooking time always depends on the amount of mixture you use in each pancake and the temperature of your pan.

For the caramelized banana:

  1. Cut the banana into slices and add it to the pan when you are done with your pancakes.
  2. Add a tablespoon of brown sugar and stir for a minute.

Enjoy!

Notes

  • Served: Served with
    • caramelized bananas, honey, and peanut butter.
    • honey and cinnamon.
    • fresh fruits and nuts.
  • Variations: Add :
    • fresh berries/strawberries to the mixture.
    • one teaspoon of cinnamon in the mixture.
    • as sugar, as you prefer in the mixture, I always add the minimum amount for a healthier option. If the bananas are very ripe, you can reduce the sugar in half.
    • If the plant-based milk isn’t unsweetened it’ll be better to reduce the amount of sugar you use.
  • Storage: keep the mixture in an airtight container in the fridge overnight and cook the banana pancakes the next morning!
