Saffron Banana Pancakes with Blackberry compote and Vanilla whip

Who said saffron is only a Christmas thing?

…at least I didn’t. As I see it, everyone loves banana pancakes, and everyone loves saffron. So why not combine the two and add some golden spice to that weekend brunch of yours?

As a powerful antioxidant, saffron originated in Greece, where it was known for its medicinal properties. Back then, people would include saffron to their diets to improve their memory, boost their mood, and enhance their libido.

Now whether there is any scientific truth to that or not, I don’t know, but what I do know is that saffron is absolutely delicious, which indeed equals a mood booster for me! Serve the pancakes with a homemade blackberry compote and vanilla whip and wow, thank me later.

Saffron Banana Pancakes

2 eggs

2 ripe bananas

1 package saffron (0,5 g)

1 teaspoon psyllium husk

1 teaspoon of baking powder

Coconut oil to fry

Blackberry compote

3 dl blackberries (fresh or frozen)

1,5 dl of water

4 tablespoons of chia seeds

1 teaspoon of vanilla powder

Vanilla whip

1 dl plant-based yogurt of your choice (I used oatgurt)

1 teaspoon of vanilla powder

Lime squeeze from a little less than half a lime

1 teaspoon raw honey


Saffron Banana Pancakes

1. Add all the ingredients but the coconut oil, into a mixer.

2. Add some coconut oil in a frying pan and then use two tablespoons of the batter for each little pancake.

3. Fry on medium heat and flip the pancakes after they have started to get a little color on the downside.

Blackberry compote

1. Add all the ingredients in a saucepan and let simmer on medium heat for 4-5 minutes.

2. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the blackberry mix into a bowl.

3. Let cool and then place the bowl in the fridge. The chia seeds will then swell further and give the compote a slightly thicker consistency.

Vanilla whip

1. Mix all the ingredients and add sweetness to taste.

For serving

Add some chopped cashew nuts and sprinkle on top of your plate!
