Tips + Tricks
- To scale this recipe use a ratio of one banana for every two eggs used.
- Adding flour will make for a denser pancake but is not necessary.
Use almond, nut butters or add chopped nuts to the batter to increase protein. This is a decent source of potassium and manganese, vitamins C and B6 - vitamins and minerals that are good for your central nervous system, metabolism and brain health. Try using honey instead of sugary syrups and add plenty of fresh fruits and berries as toppings.
