This easy and quick breakfast is a perfect post-exercise meal packed with protein, potassium and fibre.
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 egg, lightly whisked
¼ tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 tsp coconut oil
1 stalk rhubarb, roughly chopped in 2–3cm pieces
½ tsp minced ginger
½ tsp honey
¼ cup water
1 Tbsp coconut chips
1 tsp sliced almonds
- Prep & cook rhubarb. Add rhubarb, ginger, honey and water to a small pot. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened.
- Cook garnishes. Bring a large, dry fry-pan to medium heat and toast coconut chips and almonds lightly. Set aside and reserve pan.
- Prep & cook pancakes. In a medium bowl combine all banana pancake ingredients and mix together. Heat coconut oil in reserved pan on low-medium heat and pour in mixture in ½ cup measures. Cook for 4–5 minutes, until set on base, then flip and cook for a further 1 minute.
- To serve, place pancakes onto a plate and top with a scoop of compote. Sprinkle over coconut chips and almonds.
Be sure to use more ripe bananas for a sweeter taste.
For added protein, add 1 scoop of your favourite protein powder to the pancake mixture.
