Easy, flourless and sugar free banana oat pancakes are a healthy, filling breakfast served with fresh fruit and can be made in minutes.
Finding healthy, easy and satisfying breakfasts are always a mission for me. I am a big fan of eggs for breakfast but I get tired of it and so I often look for other ideas, but the other ideas aren’t exactly healthy. Pancakes, French Toast, waffles, Eggs Benedict…Not really ideal. So when I stumbled upon this recipe, I was incredibly chuffed. Not only does it take minutes to knock together but they’re actually delicious.
Now look, I am not a fan of flourless, sugar free pancakes. I tried making a ground almond version a while ago and was left with what tasted like a gritty egg patty. Gag. And I’ll be honest with you, these are not exactly the same as traditional pancakes but they do taste really good, especially with a drizzle of maple syrup and some fresh fruit. They taste like they’ve been made with whole wheat flour because the oats leave a bit of texture but if you’d like the texture to be smoother, simply allow it to blend a little more. I suppose you could also soak the oats before hand but oats can sometimes go a bit gummy so just be careful if you do that.
All in all, a fantastic alternative to regular old pancakes filled with protein, fibre and vitamins. Win!
