CALORIE COUNT: 240 Calories Per Serving; SERVING SIZE: 243 grams.
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.)
Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle to medium/medium-low heat.
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.
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!”)
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.
Remove from skillet/griddle, and serve hot. (Feel free to top with fresh fruit & nuts!)
Eat & enjoy!
