Seriously who doesn't love a delicious stack of pancakes? They are warm and comforting and so versatile, but I'll be honest, pancakes are not my husband's go to order when we're out for brunch. However, he married an American girl, and when I seldom make pancakes, he is more than happy to eat them. Of course I have to make a healthier version, which is simple and can be done in 5 minutes.
I made these pancakes with figs because they were in season and full of flavor, but you can substitute the figs for any berry, nuts, seeds, or even chocolate chips! This recipe makes about 3-4 small pancakes or 1 large one.
1 rip banana
2 ripe figs, chopped
1 egg white
1 tbsp coconut oil for cooking
1/2 cup fresh or sauteed berries or
2 tbsp maple syrup or
2 tbsp raw organic honey or
1 tbsp coconut oil
Mash a banana well in a bowl. Make sure to mash the banana well enough so that the consistency is smooth. Once mashed, crack the egg and egg white and mix the ingredients well. Chop the figs and add those into the batter.
Heat a medium sized pan and add the coconut oil. Spoon some of the mixture into the pan and cook the pancakes for about 1-2 minutes per side, until just brown. Top with berries or any natural sweetener!
