“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.
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!
Anyway, my single banana, two egg mix gave me 5 decent sized pancakes.
They don’t taste like pancakes, but they’re quite palatable. I’m thinking peanut butter would work excellently with them too!
