It’s been quite a while since Ashley posted all of her banana scrambles, but I just have to post the formula that I use(based off a bunch of her different recipes) because we love these things. They’re awesome for breakfast, either on the go in a bun or english muffin or even in a wrap or on a plate like pancakes. They’re especially good for a snack in the middle of the day for the kids. I find this recipe to be extremely filling so I usually just eat it with fresh fruit as you can see from the pictures. Although a lot of the fruit in the picture went to the kids. I always wonder how they can eat their breakfast and then half of mine too. But anyways, these are a staple around here. Super easy to throw together, I don’t even usually measure the ingredients I just throw everything in a bowl and cook it up. You don’t even need to make it into a pancake like shape and if it falls apart while flipping, it really doesn’t matter, it still tastes great.
Serves one and is easily doubled for two
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1 tbsp nut butter(peanut butter, almond butter, coconut butter, or whatever you like)
- 2-3 tbsp milk(dairy or non dairy – I use unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/2-1 tsp spices(cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, chai spices, etc)
- 1 tbsp coconut (or other dry ingredients such as oat bran, ground nuts, wheat germ, etc. In this one I used this crunchy quinoa)
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds or ground flax
- 3 tbsp rolled oats
- a tiny pinch of sea salt
- 1 tbsp nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, etc(in this case I used walnuts)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Prepare your pan by lightly spray it with oil before placing it over medium heat. Once the pan is hot drop the batter into one large pancake or patty or two smaller ones for easier flipping. They should be no more than 1/2″ thick.
Cook at least 3-4 minutes on the first side before checking, then look to see if it’s golden on the bottom. Once it’s golden, flip and cook till it’s golden on the other side. You can serve it on a bun or english muffin with jam or nut butter and fresh fruit, or just on a plate like pancakes. Top with your usual pancake toppings or nut butter, jam, fruit sauce, or just fresh fruit.
