Banana Pancakes anyone?

Banana Pancakes anyone?

For those cleaning up their diet, and especially those removing sugar & wheat/ gluten from their diets, pancakes can be a rough one. Not any more. I have a HUGE number of recipe pages in my Facebook feed and I keep seeing these Paleo banana pancakes where the only ingredients are eggs & banana. I have always thought, “seriously?”. A couple of nights ago, I decided to give it a whack. Here’s what I did.

Paleo Banana Pancakes

1 large banana & 2 eggs in the Vitamix, on high for about 10-15 seconds. It makes a really lovely fluffy batter when it’s whipped up really well in the Vitamix Blender (for those of you with out one, a stick blender would be fine too). A nice big pancake in a non-stick pan with a nice blob of coconut oil. First one turned out ok, but I forgot to re-oil the pan for the second one and it stuck.

So, what did I learn?

  1. Use base recipe of 2 eggs & 1 banana.
  2. Make small ones.
  3. Grease the pan EVERY TIME with a little coconut oil

Pimp my pancakes

  1. Pop a little vanilla bean powder in, we love the Loving Earth one and we can’t wait until it’s back in stock again.
  2. Pimp it with a little coconut sugar or maple syrup
  3. To get more of a pancake feel, experiment with small amounts of coconut flour to keep it gluten free and wet it down a little with milk (if you’re dairy free, try homemade almond milk or cashew milk).
  4. Drop in some dried organic berries or fresh ones if you can find them. It’s worth nothing that berries are some of the heaviest sprayed crops, so it’s always best to buy them organic.

The vanilla bean powder & coconut flour are available from the health food section of our store and we are an official Vitamix Australia stockists with THE best deal in the country. Please check the Vitamix category in our store for the latest offer,  but it usually includes 50% off gift vouchers with the silver blender, so you can buy $200 worth of health food online  for $100. Go nuts on the organic food, or buy organic chocolate, lunch boxes and food containers for left overs or whatever you like. You can even kick start your organic skin care regime when you buy your blender.

If you use this base recipe and pimp it out, we’ve love to hear from you!
