These pancakes are insanely simple & easy to whip up. To make a short stack that serves one you'll need:
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 1 large spoonful of creamy peanut butter
- a dash of cinnamon
- a splash of vanilla extract
- 1 heaping spoonful ground flaxseed (optional)
- handful of frozen mixed berries
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Warm up a pan over medium heat on the stove and mash up the banana, egg, cinnamon, peanut butter, vanilla, and flaxseed; it'll end up having a look / consistency close to oatmeal.
When everything is fully incorporated add some of the 'pancake' batter to the pan and let it cook until the uncooked side starts to bubble.
Then carefully flip it over and let the bottom crisp up for a couple more minutes. While the pancakes are cooking make the 'jelly' topping. Combine the frozen berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a bowl then pop it in the microwave for a minute or two until the berries are soft enough to pierce with a fork. Once the pancakes have been cooked for a few minutes on each side and have a nice golden brown coloring plate them and drizzle on the berry mixture.
Then dig in.
These pancakes wont have exactly the same consistency as regular pancakes, as they'll be a bit more moist. But at least you wont feel as guilty being stuffed full of carbs!
