Fluffy pancake goodness & all natural ingredients
2 medium size bananas
6-7 medium egg whites
1 cup/punnet of blueberries (frozen or fresh)
Olive oil (spray or bottle)
These are seriously my all-time favourite! Pancakes that are super-fast, and simple to prepare and cook, and guess what?
It’s only 4 ingredients, and none of them refined sugars, or even flour!
I love them because not only do they have a unique taste from regular pancakes, but they’re also ideal for when I want something yummy and tasty without feeling too full and heavy afterwards.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Difficulty Level: Easy
Just cut or rip the bananas up into small pieces (Just small enough that the blender will be able to make easy work of them), and put them into a mixing bowl.
Crack and seperate the egg whites from the yolk, putting the egg whites into your mixing bowl with the bananas.
Blend- If you're like me and you don't have a big fancy blender, then a simple hand blender will do just fine.
Blitz it all up until you have a nice smooth batter without any lumps. It should be a bit frothy on he top.
Add the blueberries to that batter, and give a quick stir so they’re mixed in.
Prepare the frying pan with a light coating of oil and add a large blob of pancake mix. Cook on a medium heat, for roughy 2 minutes, and flip it with a spatchula when you start see bubbles appear in the middle of the pancake. Leave it on this side for roughly 1 minute.
These have a different texture to regular pancakes. Make sure they are cooked at least 80% properly before you flip them, otherwise they will be too wet and you will get pancake everywhere!
Here are a few fun additions to recipe that I hope you'll try as well. Each can be done separately, or feel free to experiment by mixing and matching
Protein powder (1-2 scoops, and preferably one that you actually like the taste of so you don’t ruin the pancakes- think vanilla or chocolate)
Cottage cheese (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup of oats per, for a more substantial meal & less runny pancake mixture
You can top these with yummy peanut butter
CHANGE THE FLAVOUR:
Vanilla extract (1/2 teaspoon)
Cocoa for a more indulgent taste (1tablespoon)
Coconut oil (Switch olive oil for a good quality coconut oil for a unique flavour that will blow your mind!)
Cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon)
CHANGE THE TEXTURE:
For an even fluffier pancake, try first whisking the egg whites as thick as a meringue, so the eggs could stick to the bowl if you tipped it upside down. Do this before mixing with the banana and other ingredients, then mix all and blend as normal.
