Paleo Banana Protein Pancakes

Pancakes. On my diet, protein was the name of the game. Eggs featured very highly, 4 every morning. Slight issue, I don't tolerate eggs too well. Answer, mix them with some other tasty stuff. Now, I looked at a lot of recipes and they varied a lot but I was also trying to keep carbs low. None of them quite had what I was looking for so I took some ideas and made my own. These are a lot less 'eggy' than others I've tried and the closest I've gotten to wheat pancakes. I don't add baking powder because it's all E numbers but you could if that doesn't phase you but I found them light enough without it. They are tricky to flip but be patient and cook gently.

Serves a generous 1 or a more sensible 2

1 banana mashed
2 eggs
2 tbsp of coconut flour
1 tbsp peanut butter (I like crunchy for texture)
1 tsp cinnamon
coconut or other flavourless oil for cooking

Whisk your eggs and add the coconut flour. The mixture will be thick.
Mix in the peanut butter, banana and cinnamon.
Heat a pan on medium heat and add the oil.
Put tablespoons of mixture into the pan and cook slowly for 3-4 minutes.
Flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes until cooked all the way though.

These are lovely with just some honey or maple syrup but my favourite is with some fruit compote made with honey and some natural yogurt. Yum!
