Pancakes: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or snack – possibly the most versatile meal around. Unfortunately, pancakes aren’t exactly known as a healthy option – but what if we told you there was a recipe to indulge guilt free! We’ve caught up with the Detox Kitchen for the low-down on the ultimate healthy banana pancake. Banana’s are low in fat and cholesterol so this recipe is great for a sweet breakfast or afternoon snack – they only take about 20 minutes to make, too.
How to make them:
- Mash the banana in a large mixing bowl. Add in the eggs and honey and mix well with a fork. Add in the flour and combine well. Leave the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
- Heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan. Fill a ladle with the batter and pour into the pan. Cook each side until golden. Depending on the size of your frying pan you may need to do this in batches.
- To make the chocolate sauce, place the honey and coconut oil in a pan and place it on a low heat. Once the coconut oil has melted add the cacao powder and whisk in to create a silky chocolate.
- To serve, slice up the additional banana and place on the pancake with a spoonful of chocolate sauce and some Qnola. An extra drizzle of honey is optional but definitely advised!
