Hey Everybody, Who is a pancake lover?? I am, that's for sure! Being pancake week I thought I would share some breakfast recipes! I can remember it being one of the first things I learnt how to cook as a child. It became a weekend ritual for me when I was a kid, making pancakes for my younger brothers, and more importantly myself. Over the years I still crave them when the weekend arrives. So, recently I have opted for some healthier options to kill the cravings and satisfy that breakfast need. I thought I would share 2 recipes that are our weekend favourites.
Banana pancakes: These are so simple!!
1 banana mashed
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
Pinch of cinnamon
Mash the banana in a bowl, then add the egg and whisk it together till in forms a thicker paste. Finally add in the dry ingredients and stir it all together. Cook in coconut oil for about 2min per side (or golden brown). Be careful not to dry these pancakes out, they taste rubbish over cooked.
I love these ones served with peanut butter, banana and some maple syrup or honey!!
Almond & lemon pancakes
3 tbsp lemon juiced
1 cup almond flour (ground almonds in the blender)
1/2 cup oat flour (ground oats in the blender)
2 eggs separated
1/2-3/4 buttermilk or greek yogurt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients and give it a mix, then leave to the side. In another bowl beat with a mixer or whisk, the milk (or yogurt) egg yolks, vanilla and lemon juice till smooth. Add this wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir to combine.
Lastly whisk the egg whites with a beater or whisk till soft peaks. Then fold the egg white into the pancake batter slowly and gently.
When cooking pancakes use butter or coconut oil to give it a nice flavour. Pancakes need about 2-3 min per side, once they bubble slightly on one side flip them over! These are great served with fresh fruit. apples, dates, berries, banana or even lemon juice and honey.
My life really does revolve around food! I love learning about produce, reading new recipes, trying to create my own. Here are some of my food, travel and creative journeys, I hope you find them interesting or just delicious!
