I discovered these banana pancakes one day while watching a Facebook Live with Luke Hines. They looked so easy, and a great way to have some good protein and fruit for breakfast, without overloading with all that flour and sugar.
So, tweaking the recipe a bit to suit my lifestyle (Luke made these originally with protein powder, which I don’t use), I made these for lunch one day for me and my 8 year old. Just a test batch, but they were beautiful. So, the next day we tweaked some more and made them for breakfast.
Now, we have our recipe just the way we like it. Feel free to swap out the flour to whatever flour you have, or change it to protein powder, like the original recipe. You can sub out the spelt flour for coconut flour or almond meal and make these gluten free. They are naturally dairy free unless you use a dairy based topping.
And then you can start to think about toppings. Obviously the most favourite is maple syrup, but if you are looking for sugar free you can top with lovely fresh fruit. Bacon is a great addition, maybe some avocado, that would bring in some really good fats for breakfast.
These take only a couple of minutes to make, and make 4 pancakes per person. The recipe is one serve so please feel free to either increase the ingredients for your family, or like me, I make a fresh batch per person. When one batch is cooking I mix the next batch. So easy.
I do hope you enjoy these. Let me know in the comments if you do make these, and what you think of the recipe. Oh, and what toppings you use. I’m always on the look out for more toppings.
