The Healthy Snacking mini-series’ first episode is just in time for the International Pancake day on the16th of February 2021. This recipe is enough for ten pancakes with 10cm in diameter.

What Do You Need:

  • 1 banana

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Serving recommendations: Pancakes are best served hot! Therefore, keep them covered and warm until you finish cooking the batch. Pop them in a dish in the oven at low temperature to keep them warm.

You can make a batch of pancakes and store them in the fridge for the next 2-3 days. It is easy to just pop one in a pan or toaster to warm up in the mornings. Change your topping choice to add some diversity to your snacking or breakfast!

How to Make the Hearty Pancakes?

Step 1: The first move is to prepare your mixer and attach the blade. Then peel your banana and add all your ingredients to the mixer’s bowl.

Step 2: Mix for 1-2 minutes until the consistency is thick and creamy. This recipe is perfect for fluffy pancakes!

Step 3: Heat your non-stick pan and pour the batter. Leave some space between the pancakes as they will spread a little.

Step 4: Cook on one side for 2 minutes until the edges are firm, and tiny bubbles appear on top of the pancake. Cook on the other side for approximately 1 minute.

What Are the Benefits of Having the Hearty Pancakes as a Snack?

One of the advantages of having Hearty Pancakes as a snack in the fridge ready to be eaten is that you will feel full until your next meal and enjoy something delicious. The oats will help boost your energy levels and are a good source of fibre and proteins for a balanced diet.

Bananas contain essential vitamins such as potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. Potassium helps to regulate the heartbeat, the blood pressure and keeps the brain alert.

Pair your Hearty Pancakes with some fresh fruits for an added boost of vitamins!

How Many Calories Are in the Hearty Pancakes?

I love a guilt-free snack, and I have personalised this recipe to be filling, nutritional and low in calories! Every pancake is between 70-75 calories, and they are so delicious.

The calories below are an estimation and can vary based on your ingredients and quantities.

  • 1 banana  89 calories

  • 1 cup rolled oats  307 calories

  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter  31 calories

  • 2 medium eggs  286 calories

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk  30 calories

Total calories ≈ 743 (for a batch of 10 pancakes)

It is stress-free to eat healthy if you have a ready-made nutritious snack. The Hearty Pancakes recipe is easy to make, tasty and nourishing to keep your hunger at bay. I recommend pairing the Hearty Pancakes with my favourite Zero Calories Smoothie for a complete meal! In the second episode of the Healthy Snacking mini-series, I will share the Energy Balls recipe to uplift you between meals.
