'Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food' -Hippocrates
You are never too old for pancakes, so why not try this healthy alternative which has all your favourite breakfast ingredients combined into a delicious patty. A breakfast jam packed with fibre, anti-oxidants, energy and is low GI (meaning it will make you feel fuller for longer and release energy slowly throughout the day). These really satisfied my grumbling stomach on a wintery morning and left me feeling full for majority of the day! Serve warm with your favourite toppings, I can recommend the honey, banana, cinnamon, natural yoghurt combo as above. Yummo!
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup oats
1 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
coconut oil for cooking
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Lightly grease a frying pan with coconut oil. Once pan is hot, spoon 1/4 cup of mixture onto the frying pain and flatten out the batter to desired thickness. Cook for 1 minute, or until small bubbles appear on the surface. Flip the pancake and cook the other side. The cooked surface should be slightly golden.
Serve with slices of banana, natural yoghurt, and a drizzle of honey.
