Healthy Pancakes 101.

Are you kidding me?! When I discovered there was a way to make pancakes which were healthy, ridiculously delicious, not laden with sugar and wouldn't cause me to bloat I thought this must be a serious joke. But no they are GENUINE and I'm like never ever ever going to be making the real pancakes ever again! 

clementine pancakes

My go to recipe is just 4 ingredients (egg, banana, oats & almond milk) which I then add different touches to depending on what I'm feeling that day. If I'm craving some Lindt then I'll add some chocolate protein powder or cacao. But if I'm feeling like something a bit more smooth and caramelly then I'll add a spoon of maca powder.

The Body Tonic Pancakes

 (Serves 1)

 1 mashed, super ripe banana

1 egg

Dash of unsweetened almond milk

Small handful of gluten-free oats

Coconut oil for the pan

Additional dry ingredients (I pick one from the following to add to the mix): vanilla powder, flaxseed, chia seeds, cinnamon, chocolate protein powder, cocao powder, maca

Toppers: berries, kiwi, clementine, nuts, seeds, greek yogurt, almond butter

Directions: Mash your banana with a fork. In another bowl whisk the egg. Mix egg, banana & almond milk together and add the oats. Take your pick of the "additions" and add those too. Put the coconut oil in the pan on a medium heat. Spoon the mixture into the pan, either one LARGE pancake of smaller diddy ones. Let the mixture set and when the centre starts to bubble give it a flip! Once golden and cooked through take out of the pan and add your toppers!
