Banana & Cinnamon Pancakes

Soooo it's one of my favourite days of the year tomorrow - Pancake Day.

I think I might have them for breakfast, lunch AND dinner, so I thought I would share with you my healthier version, just in case you were looking for an alternative.

These are also Gluten & Dairy free so good for those who avoid such things.

And they have banana in them as one of the main ingredients, so you are basically getting one of your 5 a day without even realising !!

So here is what you will need:

1 Banana
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Dessert spoon Gluten Free Flour

Can add chia seeds too for extra goodness !



So start by mashing your banana, this can all be done by hand but I use my mixer.




Then add the egg and mix some more. Then the flour and mix again....




Then finally pop in the cinnamon and give it one final mix. That's it. It's THAT easy !




Pop a little oil in your pan, olive or coconut if you want to be super healthy and pour a spoonful of your mixture in to the pan.





Just like you would with normal pancakes, give them 30 seconds each side and flip, until you get them how you like them !




Then for the fun bit - TOPPINGS.

There are SO many options here, you could chop more banana and add chocolate sauce or melted healthy chocolate, fruit and maple syrup but here I have gone for the perfect breakfast pancakes and added crispy bacon, maple syrup and some blueberries for good measure !!




Mmmmm what do you think ? Can you believe they are so healthy ? (apart from the bacon obviously)

AND look how fluffy and yummy they are:





Please do let me know if you try these and what you think and HAPPY PANCAKE DAY for tomorrow !!
