Carob & Bananas Pancakes

I tried carob flour for the first time the other day and was amazed at how much it surprised me. I was really impressed with its taste - a mixture between chocolate and caramel with a slight hint of coffee, but I must admit that the first two pancakes went straight into the wastebin because I couldn't bind the dough. That's when I decided to add a bit of oatmeal flour and then it was just perfect! Incredibly simple and deliciously fluffy this recipe with Greek yoghurt and red berries toppingis is a "fruity-licious" breakfast and a real treat - and an healthy one!

[each portion makes 4 - I made 2 batches of  the recipe]
  • 1 big ripe banana
  • 3 tablespoons carob flour
  • 2 tablespoons oatmeal flour
  • 2 eggs
  • butter to grease the pan
  • 1/2 a Greek yoghurt
  • red fruits 
Crush the ripe banana with a fork and set aside. Place the oatmeal and carob flours in a bowl, add 2 eggs and the crushed  banana and beat all with the mixer. Grease the pan with a little bit of butter and make the pancake.
[cada porção faz 4 - fiz 2 doses] 
  • 1 banana grande madura
  • 3 colheres de sopa de farinha de alfarroba
  • 2 colheres de sopa de farinha de aveia
  • 2 ovos 
  • manteiga para untar 
  • 1/2 iogurte grego
  • frutos vermelhos
Pisar a banana madura com um garfo e reservar. Colocar as farinhas de aveia e alfarroba numa taça, juntar 2 ovos e a banana esmagada e bater tudo com a batedeira. Untar a frigideira com um pouco de manteiga e fazer a panqueca.
