As you probably know by now, I am obsessed with foods that are both healthy and delicious. I love smoothie bowls, but I also love banana pancakes. The other day I made probably my best ever banana pancakes with chia jam, and after asking you on Instagram whether or not I should share the recipe – I am now doing just that.

Banana pancakes with chia jam

Homemade, easy to make & healthy

I’ll take a homemade, easy to make & healthy meal that is also very delicious – any day of the week. I first discovered banana pancakes about 7-8 years ago. I remember seeing it on some blog, and deciding to try and make my own. Long story short: I fell in love with banana pancakes immediately and have been making them ever since.

It’s the topping that makes them

What I have discovered with banana pancakes is however, that it i’s the topping that makes them! You-have-to-have-a-good-topping in order for the banana pancakes to be successful.

In my early days as a “banana pancake chef”, I played it safe with toppings such as fruit, berries and peanut butter. But in the last years I’ve been more daring, and have tried out some more demanding toppings. Like the chia jam that I used as topping on these banana pancakes!

Banana pancake recipe for two

And finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, here comes the recipe for my fluffy and delicious banana pancakes, AND a crazy yummy homemade chia jam! PLUS a tip on a chocolaty topping that all chocoholics will love.

Banana pancakes for 2 persons.

  • 4 eggs (preferably organic)
  • 2 medium-sized, and very ripe bananas (preferably organic)

Fry in a big pan, on high heat, together with a lot of coconut oil.

Homemade chia jam

  • Cherries (about 250 grams)
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 2 table spoons of chia seeds

Mix until smooth, then leave it in the fridge for about one hour (this will make the chia seeds swell and the jam to become more “jammy” and thick).

Simple as that! For additional toppings I suggest the new chocolate flavored Smulpaj from Getraw (am not kidding, the new Smulpaj is D-E-L-I-C–I-O-U-S), and some shredded coconut.
