A Pancake By Any Other Name…
I used to make pancakes by the batch (even for myself alone), and then have to refrigerate or freeze the remainders for another day. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, I have come to delight in a freshly-made, single serving pancake variation that is actually flourless!
So this morning let me share with you this amazingly simple and easy to prepare version of a pancake for one. It’s simple, yet very nourishing. So here we go!
2 small bananas (or 1 large one), mashed
2 eggs (I use a brand that comes from grain- and grass-fed chickens)
4 tbsp ground flax
honey to taste (optional)
cinnamon (or spice of your choice) to taste
cream cheese (I use Philadelphia Original) or yogurt for topping
fresh fruit of your choice for topping (today I used blueberries)
Mash your bananas (I have found that this is easiest using a small cutting board and a fork)
Beat eggs in a mixing bowl
Add mashed bananas and mix well
Measure ground flax into this mixture
Add your chosen flavourings and mix well
It should look like this…
Put about 1/2 tbsp of oil into an oven-safe skillet (I use a stainless steel skillet and virgin coconut oil)
Heat at medium until the oil is hot
Preheat your oven on broil at about 175 C (347 F)
Spread the oil evenly over the inside of the skillet
Pour your mixture into the skillet and reduce heat to medium/low
Cook for about 3 minutes, or until the bottom of the pancake is set and it’s beginning to cook through
Transfer your skillet to the oven
Broil for about 10 minutes, or until the top is cooked
Plate your pancake, add toppings and enjoy!
Wishing you a most wonderful day!
