Hello hello hello!
How is everyone on this beautiful Tuesday afternoon?
I am wonderful today, I can tell you that! I started my day off right with a delicious, but also ‘flukey’ breakfast, and I am here to tell you how I achieved that, leaving out the parts that are to do with my lack of preparation and shopping skills 😛
If it wasn’t already apparent, pancakes are my favorite ‘go to’ breakfast when I have a day off, and enough time in her morning to putter and really put a lot of effort into my cooking.
As you can imagine I was off to the races this morning, boyfriend by my side pulling out all the fixings for pancakes that I had promised to make. Things were looking good until I got to the eggs. Or rather, the lack of them. I had zero eggs in my fridge, and a damper on the morning. I was close to giving up on my pancake-y dream when I had a swell idea.
Time to substitute! I remembered something a friend of mine told me about making pancakes just out of banana and a bit of egg. While I obviously didn’t have the egg, I devised a recipe that worked out to be delicious!
- 1 moderately ripe banana
- 1/4 cup of flour
- 1/4 cup vanilla or plain yogurt
- milk (you can add as much or as little, until you get the right consistency)
Other good stuff you can add would be nutmeg, or cinnamon, both go super with bananas.
Mash your banana with a fork very well; you can decide for lumpy bananas or smooth. I decided to mix mine quite well because I wanted it to mimic the texture of an egg.
After you add the yogurt and flour, add in your milk and give it all a good whisk together. These pancakes are more like crepes, considering how flat they are.
Because the banana and yogurt have a bit of sugar the pancakes will brown a bit more than your regular ol pancakes, but the flavor is still wonderful and they do not taste burnt at all.
To top it off, simply add a mix of your favorite berries in a sauce pan on medium heat to make your own delicious berry toppings!
In addition to the pancakes I had a couple yummy breakfast links because why not 😛
Hope you have a delightful day and thank you for reading! ❤
