My friend Brooke is a clean eater. She doesn’t eat processed foods, sticks to fruits for snacks, and enjoys at least one salad a day. She also runs a lot. She’s just way better than I am when it comes to food!!
The other day, she sent me a picture of her breakfast. “Paleo pancakes!” she said in the text.
I asked what was in them. When she told me that bananas were there, I thought to myself, “Ummm no. Nope. No thanks.” I don’t like banana-flavored anything. I DO like bananas, plain. But that’s it. So I told her, “I don’t like banana-flavored anything.”
She claimed these didn’t really taste like banana. “They are soooo good!”
I figured, you know, they fit into baby-led weaning. So I’ll make a batch and give them to the baby!
I made one batch. And then I tried one. One little pinch.
HOLY MOLY. So good!! They taste almost just like regular pancakes! I could NOT believe it. I’m serious. Ask anyone who knows me: I’m picky. And these are just fantastic. Please please give them a try!
Ingredients (for about 6 small pancakes):
a few sprinkles of cinnamon
1. Blend the ingredients. I used my Magic Bullet.
2. Heat a griddle or skillet to about medium. I put a little butter on there, but you don’t really HAVE to.
3. Pour some of the mixture until you get a decent-sized pancake.
4. Now, with regular pancakes, you look for tiny bubbles to show up, and that’s how you know when to flip it. These have tiny bubbles from the start. So you just check 2-3 minutes later to see if the bottom has gotten brown.
5. Flip ‘em! Then repeat with the rest of the mixture.
6. Serve with honey (or maple syrup if you really want).
NOTE: Notice how a few of mine were basically burnt? They were still really yummy. I ate all of them.
