Amazingly light and super fast flour-free pancakes
I’m slightly obsessed with perfecting pancakes, if you hadn’t guessed. Maybe it’s the fact I can jam in so many nutrients into one mixture and it can be done at record speed. A mum’s best friend. I’m collecting quite a few guilt-free successes to suit all kinds of taste buds and preferences. This pancake recipe was whipped up with gusto one morning for my kids. Charlie challenged me to make him pancakes on a school day. Tenacious and ever so slightly over ambitious, maybe like his mother. Normally I’d redirect him to the ever reliable muesli. However, lucky for Charlie, I felt compelled to test out IF I could make delicious pancakes in under 10mins ( as thats all the time I had! ).. and I did it. These are seriously light, fluffy, delicious and of course healthy. If you or any of your kids are allergic to eggs then this one isn’t for you. I do however have an heavenly egg-free & gluten free pancake recipe in the Nourish section under Chocolate Berry Protein Pancakes. Also amazeballs.
These are super high in protein, low in fat and sugar. Powered with loads of vitamins and minerals. Amazing for little ( and big ) people to start their day right.
Serves 2 adults ( 1 large pancake each ) + 2 smaller pancakes for little mouths.
2 x bananas
6 x eggs
3 tbps milled flaxseed, goji berries, pumpkin and sunflower seeds
3 tbps rolled oats ( optional but defo make for a better consistency )
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp maca
Literally put all the ingredients together in a blender and whizz for 30secs until the mixture is smooth.
Heat a large frying pan on a medium to high heat with some coconut oil. Pour in the pancake mixture to desired size. Wait for bubbles to appear on the top, usually after 1-2mins at most, carefully flip over and cook for another 30secs.
Top with whatever you desire. I went for a mixture of grapes, mango, boysenberries and raspberries, natural coconut yogurt and a splash of 100% pure maple syrup ( you could also use Manuka honey, but I had run out! ), with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to finish. Devour.
Tell me, do you like these? I’d love to hear how you did? Please comment below.
