How to make your banana pancakes healthy?
Mix bananas and oat flakes and you will get very healthy pancakes! The oats bring you a lot of fiber and the bananas are a greats source of vitamins and contain very little fat. I usually serve them with plain yogurt or my homemade ricotta cheese, but this time I served them with my chocolate ganache! Very easy to make and soo good! You cannot go wrong – chocolate and banana is a classic combination.
When to prepare the batter?
You can prepare the batter the previous night. That way the oats get a little softer but be aware that the batter might become darker. Do not worry, the batter is still good to be cooked. It changed color because of the bananas – as you all know, they tend to change color while exposed to air or other ingredients. I prefer to make my banana pancakes in the morning from start to final product. I really like the crunchy texture you get from the oats this way:) This recipe is great for a brunch as well.
