Blender Coconut and Banana Pancakes
Only five ingredients and a blender. These coconut and banana pancakes are the easiest breakfast that you can think of.
Lately — the past year — I’ve been a huge couch potato and as a pre-summer resolution I decided to restart the gym and you know… to get things moving.
I’m trying — harder than ever — to get healthier and that includes exercise and good food.
The first thing is the easiest for me: swimming and gym 4 times per week covers my exercise share.
Now the food… Well, that is a lot harder for me. This blog is not precisely “a healthy” recipe blog. I like scrumptious dishes that are indulgent and delicious. Honestly, I’m not a calorie counter girl. I’m more the type of girl that puts butter in everything and indulges herself with ricotta pancakes.
But these blender pancakes makes the hard work a lot easier. I mean it took less than 20 minutes to get a pancake tower and they keep you on the healthy path. They are fulfilling and yummy.
They are perfect if you are in the middle of a caloric deficit plan for the summer body but you don’t want to give up your sweet breakfast. They are sweetened with stevia and that makes it completely guilt-free and caloric friendly.
A little trick in case that you are going to take a high-intensity training after your breakfast: Add a ½ scoop of vanilla protein to give you a protein pancake. This way you will have the energy for your training and your muscles can recover quicker.
You can add some seasonal fruits on top and some honey for extra sweetness. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with blueberries. So I add a few of them on top to complete this nutritious and delicious breakfast.
This is the perfect breakfast for the pre-summer season!
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 banana
- ⅓ cup self-raising flour
- 2 tbsp sweetener (I use stevia)
- 1 egg
Pour all the ingredients into the blender and blend in high speed until you get a homogeneous batter.
Make your pancakes in a nonstick pan (you can add a bit of coconut oil if needed)
Serve with some fruit and honey.
