Approx 75 calories per pancake. Makes 4.

My boyfriend said he had a notion for something sweet, so a quick check in the cupboards and this is what I came up with.

 

For the Pancakes:-

2 medium eggs

1 banana

1 tbsp Desiccated Coconut

1tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp cocoa powder

 

For the banana, coconut and cinnamon pancakes:-

1. Mash up banana and add in 2 eggs then whisk together

2. Add in coconut and cinnamon, mix through

3. Heat a non stick pan then pour a small amount in and using the back of a spoon even out in pan. Cook for about 2-3mins on each side. I made 2 about 15cm diameter.

 

For the cocoa pancakes:-

1. With the remaining mixture I added tbsp of cocoa powder and cooked through. I made 2 approx 15cm in diameter.

You can pretty much add any flavour you like.

Serve with some Maple Syrup or ice cream for a tasty dessert.


Heavenly Healthy Chocolate Pudding

I had some ripe avocados and bananas left over and suddenly thought about all the blogs/websites I’ve read about avocado chocolate mousse, so I decided to give it a go and add in a banana…….and oh WOW, it tastes amazingly good. The best thing was it only took 5 minutes to make. This recipe does about 2 large portions (270 calories each portion) or 4 smaller portions (136 calories per portion).

 

1 Banana

1 Avocado

3 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp maple syrup or agave

 

1. Put Banana and Avocado into a food mixer and mix thoroughly until to get a smooth mixture.

2. Add in cocoa powder, vanilla and syrup and mix together until very smooth mixture is blended.

3. Spoon into a serving dish and eat straight away…YUMMY! ot you can put into a refrigerator for later.
