Banana nut pancakes with chocolate and coconut
Can you believe these are sugar and wheat free?! Five weeks in to my no sugar challenge and I needed something to satisfy my sweet cravings (which I suspect only occurred after several cheat moments in week 4!). These banana nut pancakes (yep, just three ingredients) hit the spot. They are simple and healthy, but super indulgent.
Try them for breakfast, make a batch for the family for morning or afternoon tea, or they would make a great desert.
1 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons almond or hazelnut meal
Butter or coconut oil, for frying
Add top three ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine. Heat butter or oil in frypan over low-medium heat. Pour small rounds of pancake mixture into the frypan.
Keep a close eye on these, as they won’t bubble like regular pancakes because they don’t contain flour. To tell if they’re ready to flip, watch for the edges as they begin to round up. This should take about 1 – 1.5 mins.
Turn the pancakes over and cook on the other side. Serve on a plate with shredded coconut and two chocolate coconut ice cubes.
