Sunday Brunch

16 Oct

Who says you can't have pancakes on the Whole 30?

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

1 egg

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.

    This is an excellent recipe that can be modified to add a touch of gourmet and create variety. Think cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, citrus zest with a squeeze of orange or lemon juice; etc

    You can add any or a combination of these spices and flavors to make the pancakes even more interesting.

      Definitely on the right track Arthi! I made the simple basic template, but they can definitely be “jazzed up” with all sorts of combinations of spices and flavors. Good work on modifying the recipe. How are you doing with the other meals?
