My healthy & delicious pancake recipe for a yummie and powerful start of the day. (And an alternative for banana - oatmeal porridge or for American Pancakes) How soothing a bowl of porridge can be, this sure is a different way to eat oatmeal isn't it? Oatmeal is such a great breakfast option to kickstart your day. Super healthy for many many reasons. (Really, look it up! I'm a fan)
Personally I love to eat my oatmeal cold with milk, fresh fruits, nuts and raisins or in the shape of banana oatmeal pancakes topped with banana slices, blueberries and maple syrup. I make these pancakes about once a week for breakfast. (varied food intake is important. Haha, I could eat them every day!) They are also great if you're going to serve an afternoon tea! Just an idea. ;-)
These banana oatmeal pancakes keep me guilty-free and full for a long time and I do love them as a breakfast before my morning run or pilates. (Oh well, that was last year, I hope to resume my sport activities soon after birth, I kinda miss that routine!)
No worries if you haven't got the time in the morning (snoozing is allowed) to prepare these delights, I myself admit that I sometimes bake them the night before and place them (covered with a plate) in the fridge. In the morning I simply heat up a pan with a tiny bit of coconut oil and I flip the pancakes a couple of times until they are hot. I just add some fresh fruits and it's done!
And tell me, who doesn't love pancakes? Pancakes my darlings, are always a good idea!
So here you go, here's my guilty-free delicious recipe!
Healthy and delicious banana oatmeal pancakes
Preparation time: 2 min - Ready in: 15 min
Portions: Serves 2 - 4 people
Ingredients for the batter:
100 ml semi skimmed milk (or almond milk)
100 gram oatmeal
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
( I use biological extra virgin coconut oil by Amanprana)
Topping per pancake:
1/2 ripe banana
handfull of fresh blueberries
maple syrup (or honey)
pure chocolate flakes
What you'll need:
1 large measure cup (or a bowl to blend the batter)
pancake frying pan
(a brush to oil your pan)
It's baking time!
1 Make sure to mix until a smooth batter is reached
2 Heat up a pancake frying pan on a medium to high temperature
3 Add a bit of coconut oil
4 With a soup spoon pour some batter into the pan. The batter will look puffy with tiny holes in them while it bakes, this is a good sign. (It’s thicker than a typical pancake) Let the pancake bake for a few minutes and than and bake the flip side.
5 Bake the whole batch and serve warm
I love to top these pancakes with a scattering of banana slices, a handful of blueberries and a dash of maple syrup. (Psst and okay just a tiny bit of dark chocolate!)
