What to have for breakfast on a beautiful Saturday morning….hmmmmm
These were my very thoughts after my morning walk with Tommy (the dog) and the fact that yet again we’ve received two boxes of perfectly edible banana’s. All in pretty good nick, with the odd brown/black bits – but that’s the best way to have them right?
Sadly, most people don’t see this fact which is why Banana’s seem to always be in our collections each week.
I’m always trying to come up with different ways to eat them. I’ve tried them on toast, bread, muffins and even in curries – oh and french toast (remember my post a few weeks ago?) Banana’s go down really well as a breakfast, so to quench my banana thirst I made up these beautiful ‘stack-able’ pancakes; with a few blueberries thrown in for good measure!
They are sugar free, other than their own natural sugar’s of course and great for filling you up till lunch time!
What you’ll need:
(serves 1) 3 stack-able pancakes
1 tablespoon of oil
1 large-ish banana mashed
50g self-raising flour (or if you only have plain 50g plain with 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder)
50ml of soya milk
a handful of blueberries (or whatever fruit you fancy tucking into)
a handful of sultana’s
a splash of lime juice (I like to use lime instead of lemon, but feel free to go with what you prefer!)
What to do:
Mix all the ingredients from mashed banana’s to blueberries into a nice batter (might be lumpy depending on how mashed the banana’s are). Heat the oil in a non-stick pan (i used my wok, just cos my non-stick sticks!) on a medium heat. Once hot, add 1 tablespoon of batter at a and fry on each side for 1-2 minutes, do as many as you like – however this made about 4 pancakes in total. As each one is done, stack them on top of each other and then add the lime, honey or sugar if you prefer and a sprinkling of sultana’s.
I ate them without the sugar, just because the honey, banana’s and lime made them yummy!
Now eat 🙂 I promise you you’ll be wanting more!
I will be!
