I love pancakes! But I don’t love the white flour used to make them and a lot of alternatives just don’t cut it in my book. So, I have found the solution for an alternative that tastes very very good!!

Banana pancakes made with all things good for you 😊

No white flour in site.

Technically not gluten free, but this is solved by buying gluten free rolled oats.

From a nutritional point of view you are filling your body with a good serve of potassium, pectin; a form of fibre, magnesium, vitamin C and B6 from the bananas. More vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and a very good source of fibre – beta-glucan, from the rolled oats. Eggs, being a perfect protein source, contain all the essential amino acids our bodies need in the right amounts. They are a natural source of key nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, E and B12, antioxidants and choline.

These have been tried and tested on teenagers too and received the tick of approval. So these are now our standard go-to for a pancake weekend breakfast.

Add some fresh blueberries and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, or, I also love to put a bunch of berries in a blender and whip up into a puree and spoon this onto the pancakes….drool…yum.
