How are you doing after the first 2 weekends in the Whole 30? Were you able to stay away from the glass of wine at dinner, or french fries watching the 49ers and Raiders bring home Ws?
I know some of you may be a getting a little sick of having eggs for breakfast, so figured I would share a lazy Sunday brunch staple of mine: Almond Butter Banana Pancakes
1 Banana, cut into 1-2 inch pieces
Heaping spoonful of almond butter
In a small mixing bowl, mash the banana. Add the egg and almond butter and mix until well combined and the banana is integrated into the butter. Add almond butter as needed to get the consistency of pancake batter.
In a small saute pan, heat a teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat until warm. Cooking in batches, spoon some of the batter into the pan. Cook as you would a conventional pancake – once the batter starts to bubble, flip over and cook the second side until lightly browned.
This will serve one person, making about 2-3 cakes, but the recipe can easily be increased, for as many cakes as needed. They are also good served cold.
I served mine with a side of uncured Niman Ranch bacon and some caraway seed sauerkraut. Enjoy, and let me know what YOU come up with for breakfast.
