Making Banana Pancakes….

“Take a Banana & put it in a pancake.  Maaaaaking pancaaaaaaakes!”

OK, so now you have Jake singing Bacon Pancaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakes in your head I’ll show you how I made banana pancakes:

I found the recipe on-line, and after being on Dukan (The hubby & I did The Dukan Diet for about 6 months, er two years ago) I wasn’t overly enamoured with trying panfakes again, however I read a little more about them & decided they couldn’t be as vile as the Dukan versions.


  • Ripe Banana
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • Protein Powder (I used Vanilla – I’d like to tell you how much I used, but I just chucked some in)

You’ll need something to mash your banana up – fork, potato ricer or a blender.

Eggs, Banana & Protein in the Blender

I used a blender – but a fork would work too, more of a workout with a fork I guess!

Once it’s all mixed it’s just a case of cooking them.  What I will say about cooking them, is they’re an absolute ball-ache to turn/flip over.  I ended up using a spatula as well as a maurice, however the internet tells me there is such a thing as an egg flipper; that’d probably work best.  I tend to make mini pancakes because, well, I’m just generally bad at flipping things in pans & smaller ones are easy.  If I’d have made these bigger I’d have ended up with banana flavoured scrambled egg!

Flip that bad boy over! Yes, that is oil in the pan…DON’T JUDGE ME!

Anyway, my single banana, two egg mix gave me 5 decent sized pancakes.

Drizzled with a little Agave. They look like pancakes don’t they?

They don’t taste like pancakes, but they’re quite palatable.  I’m thinking peanut butter would work excellently with them too!
