Yesterday….. Monday morning (I had been away from the house all day Sunday) and there was no bread for breakfast! Doesn’t bother me so much but drives Alfie mad! He is very very partial to his toast and honey in the morning!
This was not a good start to the week.
A bit of quick thinking was required.
Last week Alfie was given a gift of some over-ripe bananas…. and immediately said, oh yum, banana bread…. but Renee in the shop said no, you’ve got to make banana pancakes.
Right we have bananas…. and we have eggs. Quick thinking on a Monday morning?? Here goes!!!!
- 2 bananas
- 4 eggs
- A little coconut oil for cooking.
Mash the bananas really really well. Whisk your eggs separately.
Add the eggs to the banana.
Melt a little coconut oil in a pan. Ladle about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and cook for 2 or 3 minutes each side.
This amount made about 6 pancakes…. probably enough for 3 people, or 2 very hungry people.
The wonderful part of this breakfast is it is healthy, gluten and dairy free!
We had them with a drizzle of honey.
Next time want to have them with some maple syrup. Or can you imagine them with some fresh berries from the garden and a dash of natural yoghurt.
And the day (possibly the week) was saved. 🙂
