What a perfect way to start your Monday, pancakes! The healthy kind too which is always a good thing.
These pancakes are so easy to make and have very little ingredients. You can also make them the night before and heat them up in a morning, making your breakfast quicker than having tea and toast!
- Two eggs
- One banana
- 1tbsp desiccated coconut (optional)
- 1/4 cup of rolled oats
- Coconut oil (for frying)
- Fage total 0% yoghurt (as much as you like)
- Drizzle of maple syrup/honey
- Berries – you choose!
Using a blender – add the eggs, oats, coconut and banana, wizz until thoroughly combined.
Heat up half a teaspoon of coconut oil into a small frying pan on high heat. Once piping hot, add a small amount of the mixture in the centre of the pen, tilting it so that it covers the whole pan. Using a spatula, keeping checking the pancake so as not to burn it. It will go brown very quickly, this doesn’t mean that its burnt so don’t worry!
Once the pancake is cooked on one side, use your spatula to turn it over (or flip it if you are feeling adventurous!). You will find that the other side will cook a lot quicker so keep checking on it.
Put the pancake to one side and repeat steps one to three. You should be able to get three small pancakes out of this mixture, or you could make one big one!
Display your pancakes on a plate, cutting in half of just leaving whole if you prefer. Add the yoghurt, I usually use about two tablespoons and always have Fage yoghurt. This yoghurt has very little sugar (compared to the majority of others) and is very high in protein. A lot of people think that yoghurt is healthy, it can be but you have to read the label. Some yoghurts have so much sugar in them, you might as well just eat a chocolate bar!
Add the berries that you would like or any fruit for that matter followed by a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. I also like to add some more desiccated coconut because I love it!
Go for it, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They make a great alternative to toast, cereal plus who doesn’t like pancakes?!
