Recipe of the Week
These pancakes make a great breakfast and are also good on the go as a snack. You don’t need to add powdered protein but if you do try and use a good quality one.
You can also add a variety of different toppings and alternate the banana for other fruit or even veg.
- 2 eggs- we use the whole egg as the yolk contains more than 90% of the calcium, iron, zinc, thiamine, phosphorus, B6, folate and B12 and 89% of the pantothenic acid. If you are on a VERY strict calorie controlled diet then feel free to use just the egg whites.
- 1 banana mashed up- the riper the better.
- 25g protein powder
- 1 Tbs of peanut butter (optional)
- 2 tbs raisins, blackberrys, blueberrys or whatever you fancy!
- Walnuts to sprinkle on top
- 2 tbs coconut milk- drinking not cooking.
Mix it all together and cook in a hot pan with coconut oil and add the walnuts sprinkled on top. if you want you can finish it under the grill to toast the walnuts.
Bananas are a great source of Vitamin C, Potassium ,Manganese and Vitmain B6. They are also low in saturated fat, cholesteral and sodium.
One large banana contains 467g of potassium which helps guard against high blood pressure, stroke and atherosclerosis. They can also help prevent depression and encourage feelings of relaxation and well-being as they are also a good source of tryptophan and serotonin.
