Banana-oatmeal Pancakes


This is a hearthy, healthy version of the traditional pancake breakfast. These pancakes get their sweetness from banana so no sugar is needed. Oats are a super nutritious, gluten-free, wholegrain food that has been used in cooking for thousands of years. This grain provides protein, fiber, B-vitamins and minerals, and it has the ability to lower blood cholesterol. Oats are also known as a nervine herb, which means that it supports the nervous system and can help to reduce stress. Bananas work wonderfully as a natural sweetener. They contain a lot of potassium, a mineral that helps to control high blood pressure, as well as vitamin C and B6, manganese, magnesium and the fiber pectin, which can moderate blood sugar levels and ease the digestive process.

This is a basic recipe for pancake batter. It can easily be pimped with different spices or berries, and the possibilities for toppings are endless : )

Banana-oatmeal Pancakes (1 portion)

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 banana (sliced)

1/4 cup regular milk or almond milk

1 egg

pinch of salt

coconut oil or butter for frying

Optional: pinch of vanilla powder or ground cardamom, or 1/4 cup of blueberries

How to make it

In a bowl, mash together oatmeal and sliced banana with a fork until well-combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk for about 30 seconds, or till the batter is nice and runny (I dont mind little lumps of banana and oatmeal, but if you want the batter to be completely runny use a mixer). Heat a lightly greased frying pan over medium heat and use a normal spoon to pour mini pancakes into the pan. Brown on both sides.

Top with fresh berries and fruits, maple syrup, honey, nutbutter, desiccated coconut, homemade cranberry sauce or whatever you desire : )
