Wednesday Wisdom from Framar Health Pancake Recipe

Wednesday Wisdom with Sarah Trimble Nutrition from Framar Health, providing expert nutritional advice & recipes to help support your marathon training.
Three Ingredient Pancakes
These pancakes are ideal for a pre-running breakfast. The bananas are rich in electrolytes and provide the carbohydrates necessary to fuel your training while the eggs provide the protein that supports post-exercise muscle recovery. Peanut butter is an excellent source of magnesium, a mineral that is necessary for energy production and muscle function. Serve drizzled with a little maple syrup and some fresh berries.
1 large banana, mashed until smooth
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp peanut butter (sugar free)
Coconut oil or butter (for frying)
Maple syrup and a selection of fresh berries (to serve)
Mix the banana, eggs and peanut butter in a small blender and whizz until smooth.
Melt a teaspoon of coconut oil in a non-stick pan on a medium heat, and drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan (the recipe should make about 8 pancakes).
Cook for a few minutes before flipping. These will take longer to cook than a flour batter, so wait a bit longer before flipping than you normally would.
Fry on the other side until golden and set. Serve with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup, if you like.
