Healthy Banana Pancakes
Who knew that the simple egg and banana would make such a wonderful dish!
The wonderful flavour and texture of these pancakes are the main reason you should get making some today. We found this great recipe
1 cup buckwheat flour (or ½ buckwheat and ½ flour of choice)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1¼ cups buttermilk, shaken*
1 large egg
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Butter, for the skillet
1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced into bite-sized quarters or halves
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
Roast the strawberries!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees .
In a medium bowl, gently toss berries with the sugar and maple syrup/honey. Pop the strawberries in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway, or long enough for the berry juices to thicken but not burn!
Make the pancakes!
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour(s), sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Measure out the buttermilk. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
All at once, add the ingredients together. The batter should have some small to medium lumps.
Time to cook!
Preheat your skillet over medium-low heat and brush with 1½ teaspoons of butter. Using a ¼-cup measure, scoop the batter onto the warm skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and flip. Cook on the opposite sides for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
The best part – eating!
Serve the pancakes on a plate and allow to cool before tucking in!
