Sundays are for Brunching…

…on a stack of delicious, healthy, only 2-ingredient pancakes! Despite variations of this recipe being all over the internet, I didn’t realise until very recently that it was possible to create a batch of fluffy and incredibly yummy pancakes with just a banana and two eggs. Oh and a touch of baking powder, but hopefully that is one of your kitchen staples!

So on Sunday, although i was rushing to fit in a run before heading out for a long country walk with my family  (as we hadn’t spent a weekend all of us together for about 3 months!), I managed to whip up a few of these to give me enough energy to make it through the morning.

I know a lot of people think that anything requiring any kind of cooking for breakfast is far too much effort, but these are a seriously quick way to get everyone sitting around the table together on a lovely Sunday morning. Plus everyone can choose their own toppings. You can satisfy those with a sweet tooth with smatterings of Nutella, or keep the health conscious happy with fresh berries and chopped nuts.  Well worth a dirty mixing bowl and frying pan!

Ingredients:

Makes around 6 pancakes

1 banana

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

  1. Mash up the banana using a fork until it is a paste like texture.
  2. Wisk in the two eggs.
  3. Add 1/2 tsp. of baking powder and mix.
  4. Heat a small frying pan with a very small amount of coconut oil. I brushed mine onto the pan so that their was only a thin layer of oil covering it.
  5. If you have set of measuring cups, you can use the 1/3 cup to spoon the mixture into the pan, as I found this helped with creating the circular shape. If not a tablespoon is fine! TIP: If you spoon the mixture into the pan more quickly you will achieve a better shape.
  6. I like my pancakes a little rough round the edges. They look a lot more authentic, as opposed to the perfect circular shape of shop bought ones!
  7. Leave the pancake to cook for a 2-3 minutes on each side. Flip using a spatula.
  8. Once you’ve cooked all your pancakes, pile them high and (the fun part) add your chosen toppings!

Topping Ideas:

Nutella and desiccated coconut

Maple syrup, berries and chopped walnuts

(More) banana, blueberries and peanut butter.

Figs, Greek yogurt and honey.
