    Vegan Banana Pancakes

    It’s breakfast week on the blog, and after the vegan smoothie bowl with roasted figs, a recipe you really loved, it’s time for pancakes, my new obsession ….! Until recently, pancakes weren’t my thing. Lately this has changed and I am experimenting with different types of pancakes. Therefore, after the protein pancakes with turmeric, here come the vegan banana pancakes and others will follow.

     I have to say that if it wasn’t the perversion of  the food blogger, experiments would stop here. These are the perfect pancakes for me. Very tasty, fragrant, fluffy and much healthier than usual. This recipe is vegan and, but I’m giving you the simple version, as well.

    Banana is an excellent source of many vitamins and other nutrients, while the sweet taste and the saturation caused due to fiber make it a quality snack. More particularly, banana is a good source of Vitamin C, potassium and vitamin B6. Vitamin C contained in bananas, enhances antioxidant defenses of the human body and protects against diseases. Furthermore, vitamin C is particularly valuable for the synthesis of connective tissue, the absorption of iron and the blood cell composition. Their content of potassium  is particularly high in relation to other fruit and food. Potassium is an electrolyte that plays an important role in protein synthesis  and the maintenance and development of muscle mass, and regulates nerve impulses for muscle contraction. Vitamin B6 is involved in the synthesis of the immune system antibodies, in the synthesis of red blood cells, in protein metabolism and proper functioning of the central nervous system. We should add that banana is sodium-free, and has traces of fat and cholesterol. Read an extensive and excellent article on the health benefits of bananas here.

    Update: You can also use whole wheat spelt flour to make this pancakes.
