After resolving to only eat fruit for breakfast as some kind of diet / desire to eat healthier, I woke up craving pancakes more than I have ever craved pancakes in my entire life. I checked my kitchen only to discover that indeed I had a box of pancake mix... but not a single egg in the fridge. Sigh. But I would not give up that easily on my dream of having pancakes that morning! And I most certainly would not walk the two whole blocks to the store for one measly egg. Yes, I may be lazy, but I am also innovative... I came up with Vegan (only by circumstance) Banana Pancakes - single serving size with strawberries (thanks roomie) and banana slices.
The pancakes turned out so good! I was pleasantly surprised at how moist and fluffy they were! Way better than using a box mix!
Recipe (one serving):
1/2 cup whole wheat flour or white flour (I used mainly whole wheat with a little bit of white flour)
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
dash of cinnamon
1/3 cup (or more if needed) almond milk (or soy milk)
1/2 banana (ripe and mashed)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. In another bowl, combine all other ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir well. Add more almond milk if batter is too thick.
Cook on medium-high heat in a skillet till browned on both sides.
Top with left over half of banana and whatever else you like! Enjoy!
peace, love, pancakes, and happiness!
