I normally make recipes for one because I never want food to go to waste and in my house, I am the only one on a healthy journey everyone else loves to enjoy whatever they are craving. Not that I don’t enjoy what I crave I do but I always find ways to make it as healthy as possible.
On weekends I definitely indulge because I have to hang out with family and friends so enjoy what is available as long as I don’t overdo it. I am sharing this because people always ask me what to do when they are hanging out with friends and all, but I always say one day and one meal hurt nobody its what you do after that affects your whole journey.
That being said, I love pancakes and ever since the day I learned that I don’t need regular flour to make them, I am constantly looking for different ways to make them as healthy as possible. I had a lot of leftover almond pulp from making homemade almond milk and because of that, I decided to make some almond banana pancakes which turned out so amazing.
Saturdays are for brunch and Sunday mornings are for breakfast.
ALMOND BANANA PANCAKES
- 2 eggs
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup of almond pulp from homemade almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat.
- While the pan is heating up, add all the ingredients except the almond butter and honey to a blender or mash the banana in a bowl then add the rest of the ingredients and mix them all together. Also make sure not to use the whole banana, leave 1/4 so you can use it for toppings,
- Add the batter to the pan to make the pancakes, for 1 pan pancake, I used 2 tablespoons.
- Cook on one side until you see bubbles forming at the top then you can flip them, or until browned on both sides.
- Plate the pancakes, add the almond butter and 4 slices of the leftover banana then drizzle with honey.
Tip: I add the coconut oil to the pancake batter so I don’t have to put it on the pan as you end up using more oil when put directly on the pan.
