Is the ethylene in your kitchen getting out of control? Are your bananas ripening faster than you can eat them?
Wake up tomorrow and whip together these Bananut Pancakes. You’ll feel full and energetic without feeling heavy from all that flour power.
- 3 ripe bananas
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 c nut butter—almond, peanut or cashew
- 2 t each, cinnamon, hemp seeds, chia seeds, ground flax seeds
- 1 t coconut oil
Combine banana, egg, nut butter and cinnamon in a blender, food processor, mix master or by hand until smooth. Preheat a skillet on medium-high and add coconut oil, coating the bottom of the pan. Use a 2 tablespoon measuring spoon to make medium-small sized pancakes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 2-3 minutes until golden on the bottom and bubbly on top, then gently flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve hot, topped with fresh fruit, a dab of coconut jam and a swirl of Coconut Nectar. Goes well with a cup of coffee or a cold glass of almond milk. Makes 18 pancakes, serves 4-5.
