It's National Pancake Day! Instead of making a traditional wheat pancake, I thought I would share my recipe for Paleo protein pancakes. I make these pancakes for my family several times a week. Their base is banana and egg. No grains! No sugar! And lots of protein! The banana makes these cakes very sweet, so use maple syrup sparingly, if at all.
2 Ripe Bananas
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Banking Soda
2 Pinches of Salt
3/4 cup Frozen Blueberries
Butter and/or Coconut Oil
Makes about 8 medium sized pancakes
Mash the bananas in a bowl.
Add eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Beat with a fork until completely combined. Then gently fold in blueberries.
Heat several tablespoons of grease in a pan or griddle (I like to use a combination of butter and coconut oil) on medium heat. Cook about 4 minutes per side - until golden brown. If the outside gets too dark and the inside is still raw, lower heat.
