real food. real life.
I have known about these tasty little treats for awhile now, but to tell you the truth, I kept ruining them! t know, 2 ingredients, how could I ruin them?! Well, I will warn you - they burn easily! They are thin and I would leave them too long or turn them too soon, and well, I turned up with banana scramble rather then perfect little pancakes.
I felt that this batch was half-decent and could possibly be picture-worthy for the blog so I can finally get this posted, so here ya go!
My advice: , Definitely use non-stick surface with an oil or butter to make them easy to flip!! Without it, you'll regret it for sure! Those 2 ingredients wasted on banana mush! However, once you do cross that hurtle (I'm still working on it as you can tell by the slightly burnt one in the pic that I tried to cover up... haha) You will discover this naturally sweetened, gluten/dairy-free pancake! Great for meals or for snacks. Super quick to make, about 5 minutes or so, and minimal ingredients - a banana and an egg! How simple!
Here's how I made them. If you have any tips for not burning them, please comment below! To be honest, Lee totally makes the pancakes in this house so maybe I'm just out of practice in the pancake flipping business... anyway. Let me know if you have the same troubles or not!
Total time: 5-10 minutes
1 banana (riper the better!)
(makes about 4 small pancakes)
What to do:
1) Mash banana until smooth. Add in egg and mix until combined.
2) Heat oil/butter in a non-stick pan over medium/low heat. Pour a small bit of batter to form a pancake. Let cook until bubbles start to poke through, then flip. (I found putting a cover over the pan for a minute helped cook the top a bit, making it easier to flip). Watch them carefully as they WILL burn. And they don't taste good burnt. Trust me. Haha, but when they aren't burnt, they are delish! Hannah gobbled hers up!
2) Remove from pan once flipped. Let cool on a piece of paper towel to absorb some of the moisture. Enjoy on their own! They should taste rich of banana sweetness, but fluffy from the egg. A great little lunch for a little person!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
