Pancakes with Maple Caramelised Bananas and Almonds

So we’ve tried banana pancakes a few times now, but it was time we tried a different type, just to mix things up a bit… I found the recipe for the pancake batter on Elana’s Pantry site – an awesome source of recipes for all types of diets…  The recipe was incredibly easy and quick and here it is:

You’ll need:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 ½ cups almond meal
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • grapeseed oil, for cooking
  • whole raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 large banana, sliced
  • bacon

Here’s what to do:

  • Set the oven to a low heat (around 50 degrees celsius)
  • Throw the bacon into a pan to cook
  • Whisk the eggs, water, vanilla and agave together in a bowl
  • Add the almond meal, salt and baking soda and mix together until well combined
  • Remove the bacon from the pan, place on a plate with some absorbent paper and then into the oven to keep warm
  • Add a splash of grapeseed oil to the frying pan and set the heat to a moderate-low
  • Place a tablespoon of the pancake mixture in the hot pan, spreading it out quickly as it will begin to cook immediately
  • Meanwhile, add the maple syrup, banana and almonds to a small saucepan set on a low heat
  • Your first pancake/s should be set on one side now, quickly flip them over
  • Stir the banana and nut mixture softly to coat the ingredients in the syrup, but not break up the banana pieces, once the syrup starts to bubble, turn the heat off
  • Remove your pancakes from the pan and repeat the process using the remaining batter.
  • That’s it, all done. Enjoy.
