Them be some tasty pancakes! Now they’re not my Grandma’s pancakes (which are simply the best pancakes in the world), but they filled the pancake shaped hole in my heart.
I had made these before I went Paleo but adjusted them a little today with great success.
Here you go!
1 ripe banana
2 t. chia seeds
splash of vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
Preheat skillet of choice over medium heat. Add small amount of extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil or ghee) to the pan and add 1/4 cup scoops of batter (I fit 2 pancakes at a time). When the pancakes lose most of their clearness – usually a couple minutes – flip and cook 2 or 3 more minutes. As you are cooking, prepare the fruit compote.
Frozen or fresh fruits (I used raspberries, strawberries and small apple chunks)
Splash of water
Small dab of organic, raw honey (or other sweetener)
Touch of vanilla and cinnamon
Place in small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until everything is nice and bubbly and joined together. There really isn’t a set time on this one, just wait till it’s thick enough to use!
It’s a nice, tasty snack to fill the cravings of long lost, forbidden foods. You get a little protein, fiber, and omega-3 from the chia seeds and some nice potassium and energy from the banana and eggs. All in all, not bad for pancakes! Mmm, I love pancakes.
