Collagen Banana Pancakes (husband approved!)

I LOVE pancakes. I have experimented with so many different recipes, and I may just have found my favourite one!

The added bonus of collagen powder in these pancakes means so many extra health benefits! Collagen powder is tasteless, and a few of it’s health benefits are (if taken regularly):

Helps to improve skin moisture and elasticity, improves joint and bone health and recent studies are showing it is great for your gut health too.

This simple 6 ingredient recipe keeps your pancakes moist and tasty!!

Serves 2 hungry adults.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup plain flour
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1 banana (riper the better)
1Tbsp collagen powder
3tsp Stevia or 1Tbsp pure maple syrup for sweetness

Butter or olive oil for cooking

METHOD:

  1. Put all ingredients in to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Heat up 1/2 cup water in a pan for cooking until it’s almost boiled.
  4. Tip out water and reduce heat to medium (step 3 and 4 are optional, I find I don’t burn my pancakes when I boil water in the pan first). Weird but it works.
  5. Pop a little butter in the pan and let melt, then add your pancake batter.
  6. Cook one side until bubbles appear, then flip for another 30secs or so.
