Flourless Banana Pancakes
As a health food blogger, I’m always on the lookout for ways to make the traditional foods we love healthier. So when I saw a recipe a while back for pancakes made with just bananas and eggs, I was intrigued but found that just using these two ingredients left you with thick flat pancakes. So I set out to find a way to make the fluffy pancakes we all know and love, using bananas and eggs as a base.
The secret to the fluffiness of these banana pancakes is in the baking powder and almond meal. Almond meal is essentially just finely ground almonds, but it does wonders for adding a nice tender texture to these pancakes. To keep breakfast super healthy and sugar-free, I love to serve them with slathered with almond butter and topped with fresh berries, but you can also serve them drizzled with maple syrup and your kids will never know the difference between these flourless banana pancakes and normal pancakes.
