Banana Pancakes

One of the things I miss about London is the single size for products at the supermarket. Mini bottle of milk, mini bag of spinach, love it. Here in Barcelona you always have to commit to the super saver family pack, which for me means I have to choose my shower gel carefully as I'll still be using it in a year's time. The same goes for milk. You can only buy 1l of fresh milk, so I just don't buy it at all. But how do I make pancakes when I crave them? I found these 2-ingredient-pancake recipes on pinterest which sound amazing. However, it was a complete fail, not sure whether it was the recipe's fault or mine. I couldn't flip them, they were so soft, and they tasted of omlette rather than pancakes. So for my second attempt, I left out one egg and I added ground almonds, flour and baking powder and once fried I finished it with peanut butter, chocolate buttons and cinnamon. Now I'm happy! And they actually taste like pancakes. You can trust me on this one, I wouldn't try to convince you that mousse au chocolat is so much better when made from chickpeas and coconut milk.

To make four small pancakes:

  • Ingredients: 1 medium sized banana, mashed / 1 egg, whisked with a fork / 2 heaped table spoons of ground almonds / 2 heaped table spoons of plain flour / 1/8 tsp of baking powder

  • Method: Bring mashed banana and egg together in a bowl using a whisk, add ground almonds, plain flour and baking powder, whisk everything together and fry in a pan with butter (or vegetable oil if you want to go lactose free)
