photo-21

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • ½ c almond flour
  • 1 tbsp. Milled flax seed
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • **Optional** ½ tbsp. organic sugar (also try coconut sugar)
  • **Optional** fresh blue berries

$$ Tip: For the almond flour, use a coffee grinder and grind up almonds.

Mix all ingredients except for the blue berries.  Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray.  Spoon ¼ c of the batter onto the skillet then spread it a little so it doesn’t stay as a blob.  Add the fresh blue berries and lightly press them down into the pancake.  Allow the pancake to cook for about 3 minutes then turn it over.

Food prep tip: You can double the batch, make all pancakes and then freeze for later.

Mix makes 4 mini pancakes.
