Method

1. Whisk eggs thoroughly, and beat in the mashed bananas until smooth. Stir in the baking powder.

2. Heat a large frying pan on high. Add the butter to grease the pan, then pour off the excess into the batter.

3. Turn the heat down and ladle enough mixture (about 2-3 tablespoons each) into the frying pan. Cook until the underside is golden and you can see bubbles on the upper surface. Carefully flip and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Set aside and keep warm while you finish cooking the rest of the batter.

4. In a separate large frying pan, fry bacon and the sliced bananas for 2-3 minutes each side. Make sure the banana doesn’t go too soft and break apart.

5. Serve pancakes with the bacon, fried banana and a little maple syrup.

Tip:

For a vegetarian version, try these pancakes with blueberries and yoghurt instead of bacon. Or to make dairy free, use 2 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil
