Background  

I eat these pancakes for nearly 70% of my meals in an average week. This is because this is the easiest recipe of all time and pancakes are delicious. You can even make these vegan, depending on your dietary vibes.  

How to Make It  

Cut a (very ripe) banana into chunks and place inside a bowl. With a fork, mash the pieces until you've made banana mush.

 

Non-Vegan

Add in two eggs and whisk together. All set to to griddle!

OR

Vegan

Add a third cup of oat flour and a third cup of coconut milk. Adjust the ratios as neededyou want the mixture to be batter-like.

Once you've got your batter all ready to go, coat a cooking pan with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Pour half your batter into the pan and cook away. The pancakes are done when the sides are golden brown. 

The Science

Bananas are rich in fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. In addition, they are also a rich source of vitamin B6, necessary for assisting the body in synthesizing serotonin: a neurotransmitter which balances mood and contributes to happiness and well-being.
