Healthy Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Now I love pancakes like it’s nobody’s business, and there is just something about bananas, which add a naturally rich and sweet flavour to almost every thingggg. I’ve searched high and low for a healthy version I can genuinely sit down and enjoy. I’ve even tried the whole natural “pancake” recipe with 1 banana and 2 eggs, but as bland as it sounds, is as bland as it tastes. Being from an island, that 1 banana to 2 egg recipe fails on 2 very important factors for me when it comes to my perplexed palette – texture and flavour. So I came up with my own alternative, which calls for nature’s precious spice, cinnamon. 🙂

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Instructions to yumminess:

Makes 6 – 7 mini pancakes (This recipe is the exact serving for 1 person)

  • 1 overly ripe banana (if your banana is practically almost brown with specks of yellow then it is perfect! The riper the banana the naturally sweeter the pancakes will be)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 heaped tbl spoons of whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp brown sugar (optional)
  1.  Peel banana and completely mash in a bowl (I use a fork).
  2. Whisk egg in a separate bowl and then add to banana mash.
  3. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, cinnamon and brown sugar (optional).
  4. Add dry ingredients to banana and egg mixture and mix together well.
  5. Warm up frying pan or skillet on medium low heat. I use a little olive oil in the pan to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  6. These pancakes won’t bubble much to let you know they are ready to turn, so check them after about 2 minutes and see if they are ready to turn.
  7. And that’s it! I like my pancakes with maple syrup, but feel free to eat them plain, with other fruits, fruit preserves, fresh fruits, jam, whatever is your preference 🙂
