  4. Stir crushed cashews into batter mixture.
  5. Add half the batter to the pan (because the batter is enough for 2 pancakes) and spread out with a spatula.

  7. Once it resembles a cooked pancake, plate it.
  8. Repeat with other half of batter for a second pancake.

Notes:

  • Recipe inspired by Blogilates.
  • I like to add an extra egg white to increase the protein content.
  • If you don’t have a stick blender, mash the banana into a pulp with a potato masher and then mix the egg into the banana pulp with a fork
  • If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can put them into a sandwich bag and crush them with the back of a spoon.
  • You could mix in other items in the batter such as a few golden sultanas or pomegranate seeds to sweeten it up even further, or perhaps some crushed dark chocolate.
  • I find that 2 spoons of orange juice and 1 spoon of honey is enough for both pancakes.
