Flourless Banana Pancakes

I keep coming across pancakes on Instagram which started to make me crave them. The most popular one has been healthy banana pancakes without any flour, so I decided to start experimenting with them and fell in love! They are so easy to make which makes it even more delicious; I am not a big fan of making pancakes as it always takes a few turns before they come out nice, but with this recipe it is very hard to mess up!

This recipe serves 1.

Ingredients:

1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Butter

1/8 teaspoon baking powder (optional)

1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)

1/8 teaspoon sugar (optional)

Maple syrup (optional)

Powdered sugar (optional)

As you can see most ingredients are optional, as this allows you to make the pancakes as healthy as you prefer. I used all ingredients because I love a bit of sweetness and the baking powder allows for fluffy pancakes.

Heat a skillet with some butter over medium heat.

In a bowl mash the banana with a fork until it is almost clump free, then add the baking powder, salt, sugar, vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. Now whisk in the eggs until combined.

When the skillet is hot, start cooking your pancakes. I used about 2-3 tablespoons of batter per pancake, depending how thin (or thick) you want them to be. Once the bottom looks browned gently flip them over with a very thin spatula. Be careful they can be very fragile!

When all the pancakes are cooked serve with some powdered sugar and maple syrup. Enjoy!
