Serves 1


2 free-range eggs whisked, or one flax-egg for Vegan (see below)

1 banana ripe, mashed

1 heaped tablespoon protein powder or almond meal

1/4 cup mixed berries, to serve

1 tablespoon coconut yogurt or cream, to serve

Macadamia oil spray (non-aerosol), for frying and drizzling.


For the pancakes, combine the whisked eggs, mashed banana, plant-based protein powder (or almond meal) and combine well using a whisk or spoon. Heat a fry-pan over medium heat and spray your pan with macadamia oil ready for frying.

Spoon your batter into the pan to your preferred pancake size, whether it be multiple smaller pancakes or one large mega pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the edges have framed up and it is stable enough to flip. Using a spatula, flip the pancake(s) and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve topped with the coconut yogurt, mixed berries and an extra drizzle of macadamia oil for good measure!

Share, love and enjoy!


How to make FLAX EGGS

To make a flax egg, mix 1 ½ tablespoons flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water in a bowl. Transfer to the fridge and leave for 15–30 minutes, or until the mixture has begun to bind and thicken and is all ‘goopy’, like an egg. It’s as simple as that.
