This may seem like a strange combo but the banana and avocado in the pancake mix help to keep it really soft and moist even if it does have a slightly green tinge! Plus it’s a great way to get avocado into your diet without really noticing, making it a great recipe to use when introducing kids to avocado for the first time.
I used a wholegrain buckwheat flour for the mix which provides a gluten free source of fibre but the end result still remains light and soft because of the amount of moisture in the other ingredients and due to the baking powder, so don’t forget to add this.
Choc chip banana avocado pancakes (serves 1)
-50ml milk of choice
-1 medium egg
-1 small banana halved (45g for the mix and 45g for topping)
-1/2 small avocado (approx 45g)
-1/4 tspn baking powder
-40g buckwheat flour
-1 small handful dark choc chips (use dairy/sugar free as needed)
Simply blend the wet ingredients together first then add in the dry (except for the choc chips) and blend again then stir through the choc chips and dollop 2 tablespoons of the mix onto a hot pan, allow to cook for 2-3 mins each side then serve up with the rest of the banana
