The inspiring health and wellness business coach Ally from Relauncher has kindly let me share this incredibly easy and exotic pancake recipe that she enjoyed at the bucket-list worthy Balinese retreat, Sharing Bali.

Being a huge lover of breakfast, bananas and healthy food in general, I couldn’t help but try these out and share the love with you all. They’re also a great wheat, dairy and sugar-free way to start your day.

Serves 1

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1 banana
1 egg, lightly beaten
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup nut milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
Pinch of cinnamon
1-2 drops vanilla essence
2 tbsp rice flour (I used oats)
1 lime
Grated coconut and palm sugar for garnish
Pinch of salt
Coconut oil and salt for cooking

How mine turned out... Trying to recreate the exotic island feel.

Method:

1. Mix together the egg, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a dish.
2. Gradually add milk until a smooth, pouring consistency is achieved.
3. Fold in flour. Add more milk if necessary (thin is better).
4. Peel banana and cut in half lengthwise. Place in boiling water for 1-2 minutes until slightly soft. Remove from water and set aside.
5. Melt a touch of coconut oil in the pan. Pour a thin layer of pancake mixture and cook as you usually would a pancake.
6. Just before the pancake is ready, place the banana in the centre of the pancake and wrap the edges over. Cook for a further 30 seconds.
7. Place on a plate with and garnish with grated coconut and palm sugar. Serve with a piece of lime.

Enjoy!
