I haven’t posted for a few days because we haven’t been eating anything exciting. Boring food, much to my daughters disappointment. But we’re breaking out of our rut! This Father’s Day morning I made brunch for the family. Banana Nut Pancakes, which everyone but my hubby loved. (In my defense, he has a narrow field of what a” good” pancake is. And that field is solely occupied by a certain restaurant.) These pancakes are gluten-free. I’m trying out the Paleo Diet. If I decide to stick with it, I’ll probably do a Flex-Paleo, with grains once or twice a week. And don’t worry, I’ll still bake.
- 3 bananas
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mash the bananas, It works best if they are over ripe. I made the mistake of buying barely ripe bananas, but here’s what you do; Mash ‘em with a potato masher about 15 minutes before you start and let them sit. They will get nice and soft. And brown. But since they go in batter no one will care.
Combine everything. I recommend, at the least, a hand mixer. Blender would be best. You want a very smooth batter and that’s hard to get with this recipe.
Cook like you would normal pancakes and serve.
