i’ve been really wanting pancakes lately and decided that sunday was the day. my workout took all my energy (it’s ok, worth it) & i decided pancakes would refuel me appropriately, as long as they were made with the right, clean ingredients. i didn’t honestly think they were going to turn out & they JUST DID. they were so fluffy, so cakey, & just sweet enough [sweetened with a honey squeeze + some mashed banana].
i came up with the combination of ingredients from what i wanted to include without overdoing any one ingredient, and i think i achieved it!!
here’s a sneak peek because they were DREAMY.
so the actual pancakes are made of a combination of the following: coconut flour, egg, SunButter [which is sunflower seed’s version of PB, and it might turn them a little green after they cook; it’s just a thing it does], mashed banana, honey, vanilla, baking soda, & THAT’s IT.
this recipe for them made 3 small sized pancakes — see the pics for reference; the serving was honestly perfect for 1 person, especially given that this was a full hearty breakfast (everything on this plate was < 400kcal). honestly, it was the perfect amount of breakfast that fulfilled my craving & did not make me feel one bit sick or too full.
also it’s worth mentioning that they were a bit tricky to flip on the pan, but i just went for it with one quick slide of the spatula under each pancake, and they lifted just fine, just fragile at first — don’t try to scoop them slowly, they’ll just fall apart. i cooked them on a pan with coconut oil, & i wouldn’t have done it any other way!
i topped them today with a little dollop of sun butter, a drizzle of honey, and bananas and blueberries!! like i said, they were legit a dream. you want these. i know it!!
