Healthy Banana Pancakes

It’s certainly going to be an exciting couple of months for me! This week I arrived back home to graduate from university (hooray!!!) and will be heading off on holiday to Europe at the end of the month. It’s definitely going to feel weird not being a student anymore but I’m sure that I’ll be back studying more in the years to come.

As you can imagine it’s been a pretty hectic month trying to get things ready for my holiday so I’ve been relying on easy breakfasts. My go to, super simple, super yum breakfast is banana pancakes!

Now these aren’t your standard pancakes that are a weekend indulgence and significant time commitment. They’re a play on the basic ‘1 banana, 2 eggs’ recipe. I add a few special extras to add some flavour and interest to the simple recipe. The addition of both baking powder and baking soda makes the pancakes extra fluffy and cloud like in texture.

Time to up your breakfast game- no excuses.
