Banana Spelt Pancakes for One

DSC01393 DSC01395

These super healthy pancakes are quick and easy to make. I have them at least twice a week! My favourite toppings are berries, nut butter, and maple syrup. You must try making these – they’re wheat-free, refined-sugar free, and sweetened with banana. With the whole egg and Greek yogurt, they’re also high in protein. Bonus – the batter is very low in fat and doesn’t contain butter, white sugar, or anything but real food. 🙂

Love this recipe and I hope you do too! PS: there are more pics of the same recipe below. I told you, I ALWAYS use this healthy recipe!


Single-Serving Banana Spelt Pancakes

INGREDIENTS

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup spelt flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • lots of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flax (OPTIONAL)

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 large banana, very ripe
  • 1 spoonful plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 splash of milk (I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix spelt, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and flax if using. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  2. Mash 1/2 large ripe banana in a bowl until chunky.  Add egg, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and milk, and whisk to combine.  Make sure all wet ingredients are mixed well.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry.
  4. Be careful not to overmix them. Lumps are okay!
  5. Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to cook.
  6. Heat skillet to medium-high. Cook in coconut oil and serve with nut butter, fresh fruit, banana slices, berries, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or anything else you can think of. Don’t forget the maple syrup!

Don’t they look yummy? I added chocolate chia pudding in between the layers and drizzled it all with honey.

This is Seline’s breakfast of choice: grilled cheese with white bread, made with white cheddar cheese and sliced pickles. Cut in slices so she can layer a pickle on top and bite. Yum? I’m not a pickle person 😛

But I am a roasted veggie person!

Sweet potato (do you say yam?), brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and zucchini, roasted to perfection in about half an hour.

We always use our toaster oven for things like this – it works perfectly for single-serving dinners.

Seline deemed that this plate looked “so typical Cindy” because of the quinoa, feta, and roasted veggies.

Can someone please explain why roasted veggies taste so good? Why? BTW this meal would be vegan if you omitted the feta cheese. 🙂 Love dinners like this because they aren’t too heavy!

Here are more banana spelt pancakes made with the recipe above. Note: you MUST use real, 100% pure maple syrup. The high fructose corn syrup Aunt Jemima stuff is not the same.

Yum-my! I’ll take three plates, please!

Peanut butter + bananas + cinnamon + maple = bliss for me!

Minus the homework. 😉
