Linda's Healthy Eating Celebration Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my favourite dishes to have for breakfast and my Celebration Pancakes are perfect for any special occasion like a birthday or my favourite day for them, Mother’s Day! My family has been bringing me breakfast in bed on Mother's Day for as long as I have been a mom and it is something I look forward to every year! The great thing about this pancake recipe is that it includes chickpea flour which is a good source of protein and the recipe doesn't include any butter or sugar. The banana gives the pancake a sweet flavour and a good texture, and baking it instead of frying it means there is no added fat so you can enjoy these pancakes and still be focused on managing your weight!
