Ramadan Mubarak to all of you! We are almost halfway down, but I’m sure I can speak for all of us when I say this Ramadan in particular is more testing and difficult than others. Coupled with the scorching heat and here in London where the fast is averaging 18 hours a day, it can wreak havoc on our bodies and digestive system. However, fear not, here’s a recipe that is low in carbs, high in protein to help you shed some pounds but more importantly keep your hunger and thirst at bay until Iftar!
In a large bowl whisk the eggs until runny and smooth. In another bowl, mash up the ripe bananas, add in the coconut/almond milk, keep mashing until smooth. Put the mixtures together in one bowl, add the baking powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon and whisk again until smooth. In a hot pan, add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Pour in a ladle of the mixture, cook until brown and flip over. Serve the pancakes hot, with maple syrup or honey, a dollop of greek yogurt and your favourite berries. Crush some nuts over for more crunch!
What you need:
- 1-2 very ripe bananas
- 2-3 eggs
- 1/3 cup of almond or coconut milk
- A teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Half teaspoon of cinnamon
- Honey/maple syrup/ yogurt/ berries/ nuts to your taste!
- ¼ teaspoon of baking powder
