Wholesome Banana Pancakes

healthy banana pancakes

These healthy wholesome banana pancakes are a twist on traditional pancakes.They are moist and fluffy with a slight nutty taste and loaded with super-foods. Spelt/whole wheat flour,chia seeds, and flax seed meal has tons and tons of health benefits.I use chia seeds and flax meal a lot .I add them to cereal,yoghurt,oatmeal,porridge,muffins,pancakes,waffles…etz. You can call this totally guilt-less delightful breakfast that can give you a good health boost.

 

Ingredients:

2 overriped bananas

2 eggs

1/3 cup ground flax seeds

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons oil

1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional

Variations: You can use 1 cup flour and  1/2 cup oat bran if desired.If you try to avoid sugar,you can avoid adding it,or replace with honey or any other healthy sweetner.You can use regular granulated or brown sugar too.You can replace regular dairy milk with almond,coconut, or soy milk.

 

Directions:

In a mixing bowl combine flour,chia seeds,flax meal,baking powder,salt, and walnuts (if desired).

Using a hand mixer,beat eggs,sugar and bananas.Gradually add milk.

Add flour and other mixed ingredients to wet ingredients.Mix until well combined and all lumps disappeared.

Heat a lightly oiled skillet or griddle on med-low heat.Add one scoop of batter using a ice cream scooper.

Allow pancakes to cook until they are golden brown.Flip pancakes over and cook the other side until golden brown .

Serve with pure maple syrup(healthier choice) or homemade syrup.

    Hi Nadia,
    Just thought to drop you a line and say hello. I found your blog through a photo on Foodgawker. I am looking for recipes and photos to include in a Thermomix recipe book that my cousin and I are producing. Not sure if you are in the States (seems like most bloggers are!) so you probably haven’t heard about Thermomix. But we have them in Australia and I love mine!
    Anyway – all the best with the blog and God Bless you! I too, am a lover of Jesus with five precious children – 3 grown up and married, two still at home and two wonderful, amazing (and I am not at all biased!) little grandsons.
    Keep up the good work – your testimony is wonderful!
    Elsie

  2. This recipe was AWESOME!!! I made this last weekend. My family loved it!!! However, I did not have bananas so I substituted blueberries instead and added a little bit more flour for consistency . Thank you so much for posting this. I loved the taste of it with the walnuts and the chia seeds. If you want to chia seeds to sprout , then let them sit in the batter a bit . I will be making these with bananas this weekend. Looking forward to it :)
