Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Almond Pancakes

Since we have plans to travel this weekend and I was unwell last weekend, I have not stocked up my fridge and pantry. A few days back Pras and I had a fight over breakfast, I just did not have anything on hand to make a substantial meal. It is so true "A hungry man is an angry man". To avoid a repeat of the same, I quickly thought of making pancakes without eggs as I did not have any. I did have a couple of ripe bananas. So I decided to make Banana Pancakes.

Last Monday I had tried to make a Chocolate Almond Cake by Julia Child but it was a disaster. I guess I should've baked it longer. Anyways, I had the almonds that I had toasted for the decoration. I chopped them into slivers to sprinkle atop the pancakes.


Ingredients (makes 4 pancakes):

  1. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  2. A pinch of salt
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 3/4 cup milk
  5. 1 tbsp sugar
  6. 2 medium ripe bananas - sliced into rounds
  7. 8 toasted almonds chopped into slivers
  8. 2 tsp Butter
How I made it:
  1. Mix the whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. 
  2. Add in the milk and mix into a smooth batter - with no lumps.
  3. Heat a skillet.
  4. Add 1/2 tsp butter. Pour a ladleful of batter.
  5. Sprinkle some chopped bananas and almond slivers.
  6. Cover and cook for 45 seconds.
  7. Flip over and cook for another 30 seconds.
These tasted delicious especially cause of the sweetness of the bananas. They did not require any honey on them as they were sweet by themselves. I'd reckon that they tasted like banana muffins without the wait :)
