Banana and Seed Pancakes

Posted in - Breakfast & Healthy Recipes on November 19th 2014 0 Comments

Jasmine is my 16 year old niece and a few weeks ago, she introduced us to this recipe.  It is incredibly straightforward, delicious and healthy.  I have added the seed – use linseed or whatever health kick you might like.  Minna added cinnamon and vanilla;  take your pick.  I adore pancakes and the fabulous thing about these is you could actually have them every morning and not feel guilty! (My children have had them every morning bar a couple for about 4 weeks – adding maple syrup is a definite draw…)

banana pancakes


2 bananas (these must be fresh.  If they are old, then the mixture will not hold shape.)
2 eggs
2 tbsp flaxeed mix (try Linwoods: Flaxseed, almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts and co-enzume Q10, for example) – optional
Blueberries – optional
Butter, coconut oil or oil


1. Blend the bananas and the eggs with whichever gadget you have.
2.  Take a frying pan and melt the butter/oil/coconut oil and when it is hot, pour the mixture into small drop-scone size pancakes, spaced around the frying pan.
3.  Place 3 or 4 blueberries in the pancakes. (optional)
3.  When the mixture is firm on the bottom which will take about 3 minutes, turn it over and cook the other side.
4.  Remove onto a warm plate while you prepare the remaining pancakes.
5.  Serve with fruit or maple syrup.
