Serves 2 (about 6-8 pancakes)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 cup oat milk
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 tbsp coconut oil + 1 tsp for cooking
Mash banana with a fork in a large bowl.
Add egg, oat milk, and coconut oil. Mix until combined. There may be small lumps.
In a different bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mixed until combined.
Heat a skillet or griddle over med/high heat with coconut oil.
When oil is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot surface.
Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake.
Flip the pancake with a spatula and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
Serve with maple syrup and seasonal fruit or dark chocolate chips.
Even though they're dairy free, trust me, they're still delicious! If you're looking for a lower calorie oat milk try Forager, but if that isn't something you're focused on any oat milk will work. They can also be made with regular milk instead of oat milk and butter instead of coconut oil. This simple & complex carb breakfast will give you usable energy for your workout and won't be too heavy. I personally like to have these before a weekend workout because they feel like a treat. For best results, eat 1 hour before exercise.
