Healthy Eggless Banana Pancake Recipe
This is a healthy eggless banana pancake recipe as we are using atta(whole wheat flour) instead of maida(plain flour).
You know compared to whole wheat flour, plain flour is more processed.
The outer layer of wheat, which contains more nutrition is taken away from it to turn it into maida/plain flour.
Using whole grains is always food for health.
This is good to make as breakfast or as a healthy snack.
It is a good way to add some fruit to your meal. Make it when you have some extra bananas.
As ripe bananas are already sweet, you may not need to add sugar.
