February is a time when pancakes are made even more popular due to the celebration in many Countries of Shove Tuesday. February or not, pancakes are always a popular easy dessert so below we have given a few recipes to make them healthier...obviously toppings are key too so consider that when layering your pancake! Fruit such as bananas, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries are a good option. Where fruit is used in making pancakes they are often sweet enough and additional chocolate or sugar is not needed!
Flour free pancakes
1 ripe banana
A pinch of baking powder and cinnamon
Coconut oil for frying - small amount
The below method can be mixed in a blender if easier.
Mash the banana with a fork really well so it is as lump free as you can make it.
Crack open the 2 eggs and mix it in. Add a pinch of baking powder and a few dashes of cinnamon.
*If you do want to add protein powder a small scoop can be added prior to final mixing.
When the pan is nice and hot with the oil add the mixture and cook on both sides.
125g gluten free plain flour
butter for frying
Pour the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg in the middle and egg a quarter of the milk.
Once you have a smooth mixture add the rest of the milk to combine.
Leave to rest for 20mins if possible.
Heat a small non stick frying pan with a small knob of butter.
When the butter starts to foam add the mixture and then when cooked on one side turn over and cook until golden brown on the other side.
