Banana Pancakes by Marina EsmeraldoBanana Pancakes by Marina Esmeraldo

Perfect Brunch Banana pancakes
(serves 2)

2 eggs
1 banana

Optional: raw chocolate powder, cinnamon, crushed nuts, dates to sweeten

Topping suggestions:
Peanut butter, dry coconut chips, oats, red berries, cacau nibs, cream cheese, honey, yoghurt...



· Heat a non-stick iron skillet or frying pan on medium-high.

· Add a little bit of coconut oil or olive oil to help the batter not to stick.

· Smash the banana and add 2 eggs, whisking until uniform. Add any of the optional ingredients (I love adding cinnamon, raw chocolate and crushed nuts).

· Pour the mixture in 2 or 3 small pancakes, or alternatively 1 large round pancake. Fry bottom side until brown and borders don’t stick; then flip over and fry for another 2 mins or so.

· Serve with toppings and eat while warm!
