Good Morning!

I L O V E breakfast...

for the most part...

I like all things, but eggs... and those are ok, but for the last year or so I haven't been into them.

I love all sorts of waffles, pancakes, and french toast,

so when I saw this recipe...

it made my mouth water and I H A V E to try it!
Banana Coconut Flax Pancakes [serves 1]

2T coconut flour

2T ground flax meal

1/2t baking powder

pinch of salt

1t cinnamon

1/4c + 3T coconut milk [coconut milk is fairly thick, so if you’re using skim, almond, etc, decrease by 1T]

1 egg

2 egg whites

1/2 ripe banana

1t vanilla

1-2T coconut oil, for cooking

In a blender, blend eggs on high for about 30sec.

Heat + grease a large pan on medium/low heat. It takes longer, but will give you evenly browned, well cooked cakes!

Add other ingredients to blender and blend on medium speed for about 30sec.

Let sit for ~5 minutes [important step, so batter thickens] and then pour into the pan.

Cook for about 4-5min on each side until evenly browned. You want to make sure to keep the heat low, so the pancakes can cook through.

* from Edible Perspective, the best part... they're gluten free!

If you try them before I do, let me know!
