To celebrate, I whipped up an impromptu post-workout treat in the form of clean banana pancakes! They were spontaneous but so delicious, so thought I'd share the recipe.
1 1/2 Large Ripe Bananas
5 Tbsp's Oats (I used porridge oats)
1 Tsp Almond Butter
Pinch of Cinnamon
Pinch of Baking Powder
A Small Amount of Coconut Oil (to cook them in)
There's no difficulty involved in the making of these beauties, and I would know, as I'm generally a terrible cook! So no excuses.
Simply mash the banana, whisk the egg and blend both together using a fork. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients, and voila! You have your mix ready in no longer than 10 minutes.
Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a frying pan, and spoon the pancakes mix into the heated pan.
I got a bit carried away watching Hollyoaks (multitasking at its finest) and sort of burnt the first sides.
The second sides turned out a lot better. Learning from my mistakes!
You can add whatever tickles your fancy, but I used the following to top them off:
Choc Shot - my new found favourite chocolate condiment...and it's all natural! (Click here for a full post on Choc Shot, Three Ways)
Chopped Roasted Hazelnuts
And this was the outcome... orrrrrrgasmic in taste and look.
I enjoyed them with a cup of green tea and my favourite magazine.
Try them! And if you don't like, I will personally come over and apologise. Or buy you a drink for providing you with false information. Your choice.
How do you enjoy your pancakes?
