Plant-based banana pancakes
I have a bad habit of having brioche rolls chocolate chips for breakfast. Which 1- isn’t plant-based and 2- wasn’t going to get well with my cutting off sugar challenge. I did some research and pancakes looked to be a good option. I did remove the sugar from the recipe and added some blueberries (10 grams) per pancake.
- 1 large ripe banana (around 150g)
- 1/4 tsp fine salt
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil (rapeseed)
- 120g self-raising flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 150ml oat, almond, or soya milk
Mash the banana in a mixing bowl. Stir in the salt and oil. Add the flour and baking powder and mix thoroughly. Make a well in the centre and gradually whisk in the milk. The batter should be a thick, droppable consistency.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add 1/2 ladle of the batter to make American-style pancakes. I did one at a time and added my blueberries before turning it over. Fry on each side for 2-3 mins until golden.
