These simple, quick, delish, nutrish pancakes can be whipped up in no time and are great for breakfast or an after school snack. I often whip these up when my daughter has some friends over or she wants pancakes for breakfast, but I am limited for time.

In a mixing bowl, mash your banana till it is well mashed.
Add your egg and whisk well into the mashed banana.
Add your LSA or flax meal and mix well.
In a moderate heated frying pan, not too hot, melt a little coconut oil, olive oil or butter. Add one heaped tablespoon of your pancake mixture. I usually fit in 4 smaller pancakes in my pan, but this depends on the size of your pan.
Note* don't make them too big, as they are quick light and runnier in texture and if too big, they are hard to flip.
Once you have browned them on one side, flip over and lightly brown on the other side. The only need approximately 1 minute either side.
I often serve mine with a little yoghurt, some berries and /or chopped up nuts.
LSA- is a 'meal' of ground almonds, sunflower seeds and linseed. You can make your own or purchase a bag from any good health food store or the health food ailse in your supermarket. Highly nutritious and a wonderful way to add more plant based protein and good fats to your diet.
I sometimes add some blueberries to the mixture ( like in the photo) or even some chocolate chips or cacao nibs for a little extras treat.
