Mini Banana Pancakes

Originally a paleo granola pancake recipe, this works perfectly without the granola. In fact you can add your own crunchy pieces (nuts, seeds, cacao nibs) or none at all (photo shows pancakes with sunflower seeds). I top these with honey or maple syrup if the bananas I use are not very ripe.

I manage to fit 4 at a time in my pan so for a quick, one-person snack I half the recipe to make one batch. I’ve also done the recipe 1.5x (3 bananas, 3 eggs, 4.5 Tbsp coconut flour etc) but you could double the recipe to serve up to 4 people. Just remember to allow extra time for cooking each bath.

An even healthier option would be to use a non-stick skillet.

Great served with fruit. Try steaming sliced mango, pear and orange with a dash of cinnamon, spices and maybe even brandy!
