Flourless Carrot Banana Pancakes

Why bother with bland, powdery store-bought pancake mix, when this carrot and banana pancake recipe only requires a few ingredients? Combine superfoods and flip the healthiest pancakes you’ve ever served to a hungry crowd! Bananas, rich in potassium, and eggs, packed with protein and omega-3’s, ensure a healthy start to your day. Add quick oats for a bit of fibre, and great tasting cinnamon (another phenomenal superfood) and you’ve got a sweet, warm stack of crowd-pleasing pancakes! Top with berries for an even more delicious, and superfood-filled, treat!

Ingredients:
1 medium/large ripe banana (the riper it is the sweeter the pancakes will be)
1/4 cup (30g) grated carrot
1 egg
1/4 cup (24g) quick or rolled oats 
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
2 tbsp crushed walnuts
 
Instructions:
1. Add the banana to a small mixing bowl and mash with a fork to smooth out the lumps. 
2. Stir in the grated carrot, egg, oats and cinnamon and mix until combined.
3. Warm a large non stick pan on a medium-high heat. Melt a little butter or oil if needed for your pan.
4. Once the pan is hot ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan. Use the back of a spoon to spread out the pancakes into the right shape and let cook for 2-3 mins. Once the edges are cooked and golden and little bubbles form over the top of the uncooked side carefully flip over the pancakes. Cook for another 2-3 mins on the other side under full cooked and then remove from the heat.
4. Serve immediately and enjoy!
