An easy recipe to try at home with your “aged” bananas and a few simple ingredients!
Happy weekend, friends, followers and first time blog visitors! 🙂 I know this isn’t a typical week/weekend for many of us as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s hard to know what to do during this time – I crave the feelings of productivity I get from being able to work at my job full time remotely, do a million cleaning tasks that were kicked to the side, and pick up old hobbies/projects along the way. However, I am trying to remind myself each and every day to take time away from some of these tasks and check-in with myself. Have I meditated? Exercised? Eaten well? BREATHED for a second? And I find that cooking is something that grounds me in the middle of all these feelings – I feel present and in-tune with my body cooking nourishing meals, but also productive for completing a small “task”. This recipe is not in any way complicated- if you search the web you will likely find many versions of something similar. But, this is the perfect balance I have found experimenting in my kitchen today and I wanted to share it with you all. Transform those slightly browned bananas and nourish your body with something good! Happy pancake making!

Recipe by © Alysha Melnyk 2020
1 Ripe Banana
2 Large Eggs
2 Tablespoons Almond “Flour” (*You can try this recipe with other “flours” too or real flour)
Cinnamon or Cinnamon/Sugar Blend
- First, heat your sauté pan on medium heat with a teaspoon of olive oil drizzled across it until warm (this will help to brown and crisp the pancakes).
- While your pan is heating, peel and break the banana apart into pieces and place these in your mixing bowl.
- Use a fork to mash the banana, and then add the eggs and mix.
- After that, add your almond flour and mix until blended. (*You can use a fork for all the mixing, it works just fine.)
- I recommended pouring ~3 tablespoons of your pancake mix per 1 pancake. Depending how large your pan is, you may cook one or multiple pancakes at a time.
- After pouring, sprinkle the top of these with a light layer of cinnamon/cinnamon sugar blend if desired.
- Wait for the edges to set and bubbles to start popping through before gently flipping the pancake. These pancakes are delicate and crepe like since the base is bananas/egg.
- Add a little bit of olive oil in between cooking pancakes as needed.
- Once all pancakes are made, top with your favorite additions: fresh fruit, syrup and powdered sugar are all great options.
- Enjoy! 🙂
