You are probably aware that slices of toast, croissants or Danish pastry aren’t the best options for a healthy breakfast. However this does not mean that a good, filling and healthy breakfast has to be boring!
The following recipe is one of the most loved recipes on my blog – and the most common breakfast in our house. We call it chocolate pancake omelet.
For one serving you’ll need:
- 1 small banana
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp. cacao powder
- 1 tbsp. coconut flour (or potato flour if you don’t have coconut flour)
- a pinch of salt
Mash the banana and whisk everything. A quick version is to blend using a hand held blender – then you don’t even have to mash the banana first.
Fry in a bit of coconut oil or other fat in a pan for 3-4 minutes until more or less solid. Flip around and fry the other side for another minute or two.
Serve with fresh fruit and possibly a spoon of natural yogurt or a bit of nut butter.
If you are feeding a family, like I do, triple the ingredients (four servings):
- 3 small bananas
- 9 eggs
- 3 tbsp. cacao powder
- 3 tbsp. coconut flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Use a cast iron skillet or other ovenproof pan. Heat up with a bit of coconut oil, add the chocolate pancake batch and fry on the stove for 3-4 minutes. If you feel a bit adventurous sprinkle some nuts over the chocolate pancake omelet. Then transfer to a warm oven (180 C / 360 F) and finish baking there for 20 minutes.
