What you need:

1 Large, semi-ripe Plantain

1 Large egg

1/2 Cup egg whites

1 Tbsp. macadamia nut powder

1 Packet Stevia

1 1/2 Tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract

1 Tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. all purpose baking flour

1/4 Tsp. baking powder

2 Tbsp. 2% milk

1/8 Tsp. sea salt

Coconut or Olive Oil (For Coating Skillet/Griddle)

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 10 minutes; Serves 2 adults.)

  1. Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle to medium/medium-low heat.

  2. Next, mix all of the wet ingredients in a medium-sized bowl together; Do the same with the dry ingredients in another medium-sized bowl.

  3. Then,  mix both wet & dry ingredients together evenly; Make sure it isn’t lumpy. (Amber’s Tip: “I threw everything into my blender, and once the batter was evenly mixed, I used it to pour each pancake. Also, the batter for this recipe will be on the thin side, so make sure griddle or skillet is hot & sprayed with oil when the batter is added!”)

  4. Pour batter onto preheated skillet or griddle, until you see bubbles on the top (3-4 minutes); Then, flip the pancake to other side, cooking for 1-2 minutes.

  5. Remove from skillet/griddle, and serve hot. (Feel free to top with fresh fruit & nuts!)

  6. Eat & enjoy!
