If you are following my blog along, you’ve already noticed that I started adding step-by-step photos. A lot of people enjoy just scrolling through the photos and getting an idea what goes into a recipe. So, now you’ve got a delicious recipe and step-by-step instructions – it is a “no fail” scenario. Good morning and let’s start cooking!!!
HEALTHY BANANA PANCAKES INGREDIENTS:
- 2 medium bananas
- 1/2 cup of almond milk (or regular milk)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of flour (I use Organic Unbleached White All Purpose Flour)
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
1. To prepare the pancakes, puree the bananas with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Add almond milk (you may use regular milk if you prefer).
2. Add the eggs and whisk the mixture.
3. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda.
4. Mix the batter gently and try not to over mix. A few lumps are OK. 🙂 If the mixture looks too thin, add a little extra flour. Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Using 1/4 cup as a measure, scoop the batter onto the skillet.
5. In about 1 minute you should see some bubbles appear. Flip the pancake over and fry for another minute. Repeat this step with the remaining batter. You should have 6 pancakes.
6. Garnish with fresh bananas and drizzle with maple syrup.
How easy was that? I cannot wait for you try these banana pancakes, friends!!!
