IMG_20150531_142740

Approx 75 calories per pancake. Makes 4.

My boyfriend said he had a notion for something sweet, so a quick check in the cupboards and this is what I came up with.

2 medium eggs

1 banana

1 tbsp Desiccated Coconut

1tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp cocoa powder

For the banana, coconut and cinnamon pancakes:-

1. Mash up banana and add in 2 eggs then whisk together

2. Add in coconut and cinnamon, mix through

3. Heat a non stick pan then pour a small amount in and using the back of a spoon even out in pan. Cook for about 2-3mins on each side. I made 2 about 15cm diameter.

For the cocoa pancakes

1. With the remaining mixture I added tbsp of cocoa powder and cooked through. I made 2 approx 15cm in diameter.

You can pretty much add any flavour you like.

Serve with some Maple Syrup or ice cream for a tasty dessert.
