Hi friends!! It's an exciting day --- my first recipe is up here on the blog! It's about time I got myself together (life just gets crazy sometimes you know??)
Anyways, I plan to post a weekly recipe (for now) but eventually 2-3 (or even more) per week to keep you all fully stocked with new ideas & healthy recipes. And I promise you I won't talk your ear off in every blog --- I'll have some fun at first and then get right to the point. I know that most of you really don't even care what I am doing in my life....you just want to know about food. And that's totally fine, I get it! My life is boring anyways.
That being said, my first recipe calls for banana pancakes! I always loved pancakes growing up (chocolate chip to be exact) but once I went gluten-free, I was saddened by the idea of not being able to eat pancakes for breakfast anymore. BUT that slowly faded when I realized I can still have them, just with healthier ingredients!
These are super easy and still taste delicious.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 1 pancake
>> cooking oil (preferably avocado oil, coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil)
2 organic, pasture-raised eggs (ideally) -- vitalfarms is my favorite brand!
1/4 cup of crushed nuts -- (I usually prefer walnuts or almonds)
1 tbsp of chia seeds
a handful of chocolate chips for a little sweet kick! (enjoy life is my favorite brand)
gluten-free granola (Purely Elizabeth is my one of choice)
almond butter (Georgia Grinders or Trader Joe's!)
**the hemp & chia are not required, but I add them in for extra omegas in my diet!
In a bowl, mash up the banana and the 2 eggs until fully whisked
Add in the nuts, cinnamon, as well as the chia and hemp seeds until evenly distributed
Heat your pan on a medium temperature and add in the coconut oil
Pour the mix into the pan and flip when fully cooked on one side, then wait for second to fully cook
Add on some fresh fruit, maple syrup or grass-fed butter for a yummy & filling breakfast! More breakfast recipes coming soon!
