Wholemeal cinnamon and banana pancake

If there’s one thing I love for a filling brunch it’s pancakes with some sort of topping that includes banana and cinnamon! … Jamaican Banana from the Pancake Parlour anyone?

But I figured there has to be a somewhat healthy way to still enjoy this without it all feeling a little too indulgent.

Made with wholemeal flour and the goodness of an egg, I decided to make a wholemeal cinnamon and banana pancake.

Preparation time: 3 minutes
Cooking time: 3 minutes
Makes: 1 large pancake

1/3 cup wholemeal flour
1 whole egg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup skim milk (or almond milk/soy milk)
1 banana
Canola oil spray, to cook
Low GI sweetener such as agave or coconut syrup, to serve

1. Beat in to a big cup/mug the egg and milk.
2. Add in the flour and cinnamon. Mix well.
3. If the mixture is too thick, add a drop of water then stir.
4. Heat a pan on the stove on high.
5. Once the pan is very heat, lightly spray the pan with canola oil.
6. Bring heat down to a medium-high heat.
7. Place mixture on to the pan.
8. Slice up a banana and place on the pancake while cooking.

9. Once brown underneath, flip the pancake (be careful as the banana may fall/move).
