Healthy Pancakes With All-Natural Ingredients

Hello and Happy Monday :)
I’ve been asked for healthy pancake recipes for Shrove Tuesday (tomorrow). I decided to use the opportunity to test out a new recipe inspired by banana pancakes.

I also posted a link to another pancake recipe from my archives.
Enjoy :)

PS These are gluten/wheat free with natural, unprocessed ingredients.
 


Plantain Pancakes

This is so so SO easy and you just have to try it.
I’m always looking for new ways to cook plantains so a banana pancake recipe inspired me :)
I prefer this recipe because there’s no need to sweeten the mixture as plantains are naturally sweet.What kind of plantains are needed?
As shown in the video, ripe (yellow) plantains although very soft plantains would work even better as they’ll be sweeter :)Watch the video below for how to make these very simple, healthy and yummy pancakes:

Only two ingredients are needed for this simple recipe and it’s become one of my favourites after only one try :)


Ingredients

2/3 of a medium plantain
2 eggs

1. Cut the plantain into three pieces (don’t peel)
2. Boil for 10-12 minutes
3. Peel the skin off two pieces, add to a bowl.
4. Add the two eggs.
5. Mix
6. Grease pan, add a small portion of mix when hot.
7. Allow to fry/cook on either side for 1.5 minutes (max)

I used 2/3 of a medium plantain because I tried a whole plantain with two eggs and the mixture was too thick. What did I do with the last 1/3? I ate it with some stew of course ;) I’m not one to waste food!

And from the archives…

Almond Flour Pancakes

These are low in carbohydrates, high in protein and healthy fats. The coconut milk is optional because I’ve made these pancake many times without adding coconut milk and they’re still yummy :)

The recipe is detailed here: http://adura-o.com/2012/02/21/pancakes/ 

You can use any nut flour alternatives in this recipe. Coconut flour is another option.

So you see – you can still enjoy Pancake Day the healthier way :)
