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!
No Grain Pancakes
- 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
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.
Preheat pan to med-low heat.
Add a dollop of batter. (about the size of your spatula)
Wait until you see bubbles forming to flip.
Voila! We have pancakes!!
Alternative topping would be natural jam or unpasteurized honey.
