Banana Blueberry Pancake : Lower Carb


Regular readers may recall our youngest grandson loves helping out as can be seen on this older post here, but oh dear, he did get rather wet didn't he! 

Another thing he loves doing is eating pancakes, and I share a recipe that you may like too! 

In fact, a few ingredients are all you need to make this fast and delicious lower-carb pancake. The sugar content is reduced when the banana is not yet very ripe, but the fibre and nutrients remain. The riper the banana, the higher the carbs. Unripe or green bananas have resistant starch that withstands digestion, acting like a soluble fibre and having less impact on blood sugar and insulin release.

Ingredients
One Serving - 4 small pancakes
43g Fat  13g Protein  18g Net Carbs

Pancakes
1 medium unripe banana, mashed
2 eggs
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp (5 g) baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp butter, or ghee for frying
30 g fresh blueberries or frozen
Serving
2 tbsp butter

Blueberries (and blue fruits) are tasty and packed with nutrients. They’re low in calories, high in fibre, and loaded with essential micronutrients, such as manganese and vitamins C and K. These delicious berries are also high in anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants that help defend your cells against harm from unstable molecules called free radicals. Additionally, research indicates that diets high in anthocyanins from blueberries and other fruits and vegetables may help prevent chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and brain conditions like Alzheimer’s.

Readers, we bring a variety of articles, studies etc. plus recent news/views and recipe ideas to this blog, we hope something for everyone to read and enjoy. Please note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

Sounds delicious. I had always heard that the less ripe bananas are, the less sugar but didn't know why. Thanks,

I always have blueberries around, but I generally steer clear of bananas. I will be be on the lookout for green ones and not feel guilty. Take care!
