Who doesn't like pancakes?
What if you can make them healthy so you can have them every day as part of your balanced diet?
That's why I LOVE Banana Oat Pancakes.
Easy, quick, versatile and yummy.
But same as with any healthier alternative, watch out for portion size and what you put ON THEM. That makes a huge difference if they will serve you for your weight maintenance, muscle gain or weight gain.
I love them with thin spread od peanut butter. A dollop of natural or vanilla yogurt, heaps of fresh or thawed frozen fruit and a bit of crunch on top (nuts, seeds, buckwheat, coconut flakes)
The golden rule is to eat 3 palm-size pancakes per portion or 2 of them for a snack. If you still hungry after that, you need to add more fruit.
Banana Oat Pancakes
Ingredients: Makes about 16 pancakes
1 cup of oats
2 free-range eggs
1 cup of plant-based or organic milk
1 tsp of cinnamon powder (helps balance blood sugar)
OPTIONAL: 1 tbs flax meal / 1 tsp cacao powder / 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Method: Preheat a non-stick pan. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for a couple of minutes until smooth. Add more water of fluid it foo thick. Spoon batter onto the nonstick pan to form palm-sized pancakes.
Fry about 30s from one side or until small bubbles forms on the top, then flip on the other side and fry for another half to the minute.
Serve warm with your favourite toppings (see above my serving suggestion)
TIP: Store them in a fridge in an airtight container and use as a quick afternoon snack, morning tea or after-dinner treat.
