Banana Bread Pancakes

Banana Bread Title

An imperfectly delicious stack of homemade banana bread pancakes. Soft, pillowy, wholesome and filling. I usually fall asleep dreaming about my breakfast and last night was no different. After I received the amazing news about becoming a finalist in the Irish Blog Awards, I felt like a treat was in order. A healthy one no less!

When I sat down to eat breakfast this morning, I really felt like I was eating a cake. I almost regretted having not filled the layers with yoghurt and berries. Whist I was chomping my way through the stack, I thought they would work really well with puréed pumpkin/squash and some cinnamon as well.

I’m pretty lucky that the Mooberry Farm stall is right beside mine at the market. Gorgeous raw milk, raw milk cheeses, yoghurts and free range eggs. I picked up a stash of goodies and wanted to put them to good use this week. The yoghurt is gorgeous and the egg yolks so vibrant. They were the perfect ingredients for these pancakes.

I love pancakes and any chance I can, I treat myself to a stack of them. A total guilt free pleasure as there is no sugar used in these beauties. An optional final spoon of local raw honey is all I add and is just enough to lift the sweetness. There is oats in them however, so if you don’t eat oats, feel free to sub in some almond flour.
