Overripe Banana and Oat Pancakes
2 no – Overripe bananas
1/2 cup – Oats
1 cup – Milk or any nut milk
1tsp – Cinnamon powder
1tbsp – Chia seeds
1/2tsp – Oil/butter
*Blend together Bananas, oats, honey, cinnamon, chia seeds to make batter with a coating consistency.
*Heat butter or oil in a non-stick pan.
*Ladle a spoon of batter.
*Cook about three minutes on a medium flame either side until it is golden brown.
Note: The batter should be thinner than traditional pancakes, but should not be runny. In case, it is too runny, add more oats and blend. If it is too thick, add a teaspoon of milk and blend. Repeat until the desired consistency is reached.
What we love about pancakes
Light, fluffy and comforting, pancakes can be your go-to choice for something sweet on the breakfast table. Instead of opting for maple syrup or any added sugars, use natural sweetness in the form of fresh fruit such as sliced strawberries for toppings.
And if you are bored of cake and chocolate recipes, pancakes can be your next stopover in your cooking chronicles.
