Lately I have been all about trying new healthy recipes. It has been really fun experimenting in the kitchen and I’ve discovered that eating healthy doesn’t have to mean eating boring chicken & veggies every night. There are so many amazing recipes and ideas out there now that you can always find something new to eat. Eating healthy and nourishing your body is so important in order to feel your best every day. I am so sick of feeling bloated, icky, and bleh after eating a meal that wasn’t the best choice. One thing I have been experimenting with is pancakes! Everybody loves them, but they can be carby sugary nightmares. I came up with an easy to make, healthy recipe that will fuel your body and leave you feeling great. These are dairy free, bloat free bananalicious beauties.
Almost Vegan Banana Pancakes
- 1/2 cup soy flour
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 egg
- almond milk
- a scoop of vanilla vegan protein powder
- a splash of vanilla extract
- a sprinkle of sea salt
Okay so those aren’t the most solid measurements but that’s the great thing about this recipe. It’s not about making it perfect. It’s about making it your own. As long as you add in the general amount of each ingredient you will be fine. Also feel free to add your own favorite ingredients! Add blueberries, chocolate chips, thick rolled oats, nuts, or chocolate protein powder. If you don’t have on of the ingredients listed about you can also substitute it with something similar. It’s really up to you. Anyways here’s what you do with all those goodies.
Mix them all together in a bowl to make a batter. I know… its pretty complicated. As far as the almond milk goes, pour in enough to make the batter the consistency you want. Its pretty thick so I usually add in around a cup and a half. Once your batter is all whipped up you make them into little silver dollar baby pancakes using coconut oil to grease the pan. They will be thicker than usual, similar to buckwheat pancakes. Once they are done, top with your favorite ingredients. I topped mine with the other half of my banana, almond butter, and a sprinkle of chia seeds. You can also top with maple syrup, greek yogurt, strawberries, cacao nibs, whatever sounds good to you!
