Easy, healthy Pancakes by Me
In one bowl, mix the below ingredients:
1/4 cup oats
2 tablespoon sweet potato flour
1 ripe banana (mashed)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon honey
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 tablespoon hemp seed
In a second bowl, using the whisk attachment on your mixer, whisk:
2egg whites until soft peaks
Fold the egg whites into the flour mixture. Leave some whites showing. This will make fluffier pancakes.
Heat up a frying pan on medium heat, add coconut oil, add batter & cook like you would regular pancakes. When the tops start bubbling, then flip & cook for another minute.
Topping is 2 tablespoon of coconut oil mixed in with 1 tablespoon of almond butter. Drizzle on top.
I woke up wanting crepes, so I made them. I found a quick & easy recipe online & decided not to follow it like usual.
Easy Paleo Sweet Potato Crepe by ilovemunkie
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons sweet potato starch
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a bowl or blender. I used this handy, dandy Bella Rocket Blender, which makes cleanup so easy.
It’s very similar to the Magic Bullet, only it’s cheaper. Plus, our Magic Bullet broke.
Add a teaspoon coconut oil to a 9″ frying pan over medium heat. Pour 1/4 of your batter into your pan & swirl the pan to thin out your batter. Next time I’ll pour 1/8 of the batter for thinner crepes.
Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges are browned & curling upwards slightly.
Use a spatula to flip the crepe to cook the other side for another minute.
Add some Hazelnut Spread & sliced mangoes on one side of the crepe, then roll it up.
Any filling would do. This was all I had in the house so I try to use everything I have on hand before buying more.
You can make these ahead of time & freeze them with parchment or wax paper between each crepe.
I was able to make 4 crepes with this recipe. Perfect for 2 people or one hungry person.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there!
As some of you might know, I am absolutely horrible at following recipes. I tend to not have some things on hand, so I’d substitute it with anything I have in the house. It could be something completely random. I think this could be the rebel in me. 🙂
So I had 4 of the ingredients for this recipe. The rest, I decided to add on a whim & it turned out pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. The SIL ate the remaining pancakes & thought it was really well executed & moist as well. It doesn’t even need any kind of syrup but you can use whatever you like.
Try for yourself & let me know what you think.
Paleo Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes by ilovemunkie
1/4 cup oats
1 tspn flax seed
1 tspn vanilla extract
1 tspn almond butter
3 tspn water (more if needed)
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tspn honey
1/4 cup sweet potato starch
1 med banana (mashed)
1/3 cup egg whites (~ 2 med eggs)
Mix everything except the egg whites in a bowl until smooth. If the texture is still a bit dry/sticky, add a little more water until everything can incorporate together easily.
With a hand mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks. Fold egg whites into your banana mixture. Do not over mix. Leave some bits of whites in the batter.
Heat coconut oil in a frying pan on Med-High heat & drop batter into pan. Wait until the top of the batter starts bubbling (~1-2 mins), then flip the pancake to the other side. Cook for another 30 seconds.
