Healthy Breakfast: Banana Pancakes

So, this is my first recipe post and will likely not be the last. I don't do a huge amount of cooking but I'm a huge healthy eating push at the moment so I'm discovering new recipes and meals. I came across this recipe while browsing tumblr, thought I would give it a go and have since fallen in love with it. I've tweaked it slightly from the original and it makes the perfect breakfast. It's super easy and really healthy.

What you will need
1 banana
1 egg
Porridge oats
Mixed seeds (optional)
Cinnamon (not pictured)

1. Mash one banana in a bowl
2. Add an egg and mix well
3. Add around 2 table spoons of porridge oats, cinnamon and 1 tbsp of seeds if wanted and mix well
4. A tiny bit of butter in the frying pan and fry. Flip and cook until both sides are brown
5. Serve with honey and fresh fruit

And bon appetite. It's that simple and easy and I eat it all the time at the moment. The portions here will serve you two thick pancakes but obviously you can double up if you're catering for more. Or you can make extra and store in the fridge as it will keep for a few days. It will keep you full for longer and I would estimate it at being around 350 cals for the two pancakes including the seeds but excluding the fruit.

I hope you guys like.
