Pancakes with Bananas and Oats
I get a lot of requests for recipes for 1 so here you go, ladies! This one's perfect for those lazy weekend mornings when you have a little extra time & want something indulgent yet totally guilt-free! And it's super easy to double if you want to whip up more for your sweetie or if you're having a friend over for brunch. Enjoy! xo
All you need (for 1 serving)
1/2 C oatmeal or 1 packet Qia's creamy coconut oatmeal
1/2 ripe banana
dash of cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1t vanilla or almond extract
small handful of chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios) or 1T nut butter (peanut butter or sunflower are my favorites)
Chocolate drizzle (for topping): Melt together in the microwave or small sauce pan: 2t unsweetened cacao powder & 2t brown rice syrup
Toppings: nuts or nut butter, extra banana & chocolate drizzle; you could add fresh berries too!
In a small bowl, mix together the oatmeal, cinnamon, salt, vanilla or almond extract, egg and banana. Mash it all up gently until a pancake consistency forms. Heat butter, coconut oil or coconut oil spray in a pan and pour pancake mixture into heated pan. Flip after a minute or so and cook the other side. Transfer to a plate and top with your favorite toppings and enjoy every bite!
