Between Happiness Day, Mother’s Day, and end of term, it’s been another busy week here at Fruitful Day HQ! We’re looking forward to spending some extra time with the kids over the next couple of weeks and if we’re perfectly honest getting some extra hours of sleep too. These down periods are hugely important to building our immunity as we give our bodies a change to rest and recharge.
Our banana pancake recipe today is the perfect breakfast for after you’ve gotten your 7-8 hours of sleep!. It is simple, healthy and fun to make with the kids.
Generally speaking pancakes aren’t thought to be a ‘healthy’ breakfast, but by substituting a few key ingredients they are actually good for you without comprising on taste. In this recipe, both flour and milk have been substituted, which are inflammatory and the opposite of immune boosting. In addition, these pancakes include bananas, which are full of nutrients help to support the immune function like iron, zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and selenium.
Enjoy your holidays and remember PREVENTION is the key to not getting sick so rest up, eat well, stay hydrated and take time to do things that make you HAPPY.
Banana Pancakes (makes 15 palm sized pancakes)
45 – 50 minutes (If you have a larger pan and can cook several at once it will be faster)
- 3 bananas
- 4 eggs
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- ¾ cup oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- Put two non stick pans on medium heat.
- Blend all ingredients into a batter.
- Add 1 tsp ghee into each pan and pour batter until it spreads out into a palm sized shape in the pan. Note – these pancakes will not hold together like regular flour pancakes so if you make them too big they will break up.
- Flip pancake once cooked and cook on the other side.
- Continue until all the batter is used.
- Serve with yoghurt, coconut cream, fruit, honey, maple, cacao nibs or any topping of choice.
