No Grain Pancakes

Topped with Almond Butter

My lovely son said to me on Friday “Mama, can we have pancakes for breakfast this weekend?” I immediately thought about how much I wanted to eat pancakes but also how horrible I would feel after eating them. I try to avoid grains at all costs. My body functions better on a very low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet. I’m endurance training, without grains, I know, I’m crazy!!

Waking up this morning I knew I wanted pancakes, so much in fact I almost cheated and made the 10 Grain mix I have in my cupboard. But then it dawned on me that I had so much success with the flax meal bread perhaps I could recreate a pancake as successful. Voila! Here you have the most yummiest pancakes I’ve had in a long time!

All it took was few simple ingredients.
Flax, Chia, Eggs, Banana

No Grain Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana ( I used one from the freezer, allowed it to thaw first that’s why the peel is black)
  • 3 free ranged eggs
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Flax Seeds
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt

Directions:

Grind your seeds in a coffee grinder until you reach this consistency.

Add eggs, banana, ground seeds, vanilla, salt and blend until you reach this consistency.
