Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to's for breakfast. It is quick, nutritious and delicious!
Growing up, I loved pancakes.
As I grew older I realized that I am one of the many gluten intolerant people in the world. It was a sad day to realize a lot of foods were no longer an option. (But my health and happiness improved when I began to honor my bodies needs)
I like my meals simple, easy, and wholesome. I connect with each ingredient. Processed flours can be mysterious (although I love coconut or almond flour...only one ingredient there). In this way, preparing gluten-free foods CAN be delicious! :-)
I found the foundation for this recipe online and created my own version, adding the flavors and textures I find complimenting
I present to you….
2+ Ingredient pancakes!
(gluten-free, healthy, delicious!)
All you’ll need is a banana, 2 eggs (or more of each for a bigger serving), and any other goodies you want a part of the mix.
I add cinnamon, vanilla extract, hemp seeds, ground flax, and cook the pancakes in ghee or virgin coconut oil. You can also use butter or another preferred cooking oil.
You can add fresh berries on top like blueberries or peaches, or you can go down a savory route (my favorite), which is a sunny side up egg and avocado on top. There’s nothing quite like the marriage between sweet and savory!
I like to fill up for breakfast (it's the most important meal of my day), so I add hemp and flax for extra fiber and protein. The raw yolk and avocado add healthy fats- I love it! I also make some sauteed greens & sauerkraut for the side with salsa, goat cheese or both for a complete meal with satisfying and complimenting flavors. This is an easy meal that the whole family can enjoy ( or for one- I don't always like to share (: ).
Mash your banana with a fork in a bowl
Whisk 2 eggs in with the banana
Add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 handful of hemp seeds (chia is good too), 1 tsp of ground flax-- mix it all together
Heat your pan and put your ghee, butter, coconut or other oil of choice on plentifully
Pour the mixture on the pan and make your 'cakes however big, small, or crazy shaped you want
Flip them after they start to golden (the color is gorgeous!) and repeat until they’re defined and to your ideal state
Serve with sides, a smoothie, or simply some of your favorite sweetener on top (I go for local honey)
