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.

Sweet Corn & Tomato Pancake Recipe (Gluten-free)

I saw a bunch of tomatoes in the fridge, so I searched online for a tomato pancake recipe. Yep, you heard right, a tomato pancake recipe. I know it sounds weird, but it’s actually quite tasty. You get a little salty & a little sweet, so it’s the best of both worlds. No lie. This can be made totally gluten-free for those with allergies.

Sweet Corn & Tomato Pancake adapted from The Pancake Princess

Ingredients:
¾ cup milk + 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
6 tablespoons sweet potato starch
6 tablespoons cornmeal (I had corn bread mix, which contains flour so don’t use this if you want gluten-free. Cornmeal should be fine.)
6 tablespoons oatmeal
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 can corn kernels, drained
1 medium tomato, sliced thinly width-wise
image
Combine the milk & vinegar in a cup & set aside. You are essentially making your own buttermilk.

In a medium bowl, mix the sweet potato starch, cornmeal, oatmeal, baking powder & baking soda together.

Mix the oil & honey into the milk mixture. Pour the milk mixture into dry ingredients. Mix until combined, leaving some lumps. Fold in the corn.

Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes, undisturbed, until it thickens.

Heat frying pan over medium heat. Once it is hot, grease pan with coconut oil. Drop 2 heaping tablespoon full of batter into the pan. I have a small pan, so making 2 at a time was ideal. Don’t overcrowd your pan.

Cook for 2 minutes until the edges start to Brown. Press a slice of tomato into the pancake & press down into the batter.

Pick up your pancake with a spatula, add more oil to the pan & then flip the pancake into the newly greased surface of the pan. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serve with a sprinkle of sugar. For a few of the pancakes, I cut a slice of Muenster Cheese diagonally into 4 pieces & let it melt on top of the tomato. The cheese makes it more savory, which I love.

Paleo Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes

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.

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.
