Breakfast is Served

One of my favorite things in life is breakfast. Seriously, I love it so much that sometimes I think about what I'm going to eat the next morning when I should be sleeping. I feel like it's one of the only meals where it's truly acceptable to eat dessert. That being said, here are one of my favorite breakfast things to make: whole wheat banana cinnamon pancakes...
(I promise I don't drench my pancakes in maple syrup, it was all for the photo)
Ingredients: 
2 cups whole wheat flour ( I use Bob's Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour)
 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cup almond milk
2 egg whites (or chia egg replacer, apple sauce, etc)
3 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
1 ripe banana diced

Toppings: 
100% pure maple syrup
strawberries
blackberries 
banana 
candied pecans (if you want to get real crazy)

Directions: 
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add milk, egg whites, and maple syrup. Whisk together thoroughly until smooth. Fold in the diced banana into the batter.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Using a soup ladle, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto skillet. Cook until bubbles appear then flip and cook for another couple minutes. Serve with maple syrup and fruit.

Hope you enjoy!

Neshel G said...

I, too, am a breakfast lover. Unfortunately, I'm also a sleep lover. So I don't have time in the morning before work to whip up such a delightful meal. So on the occasional weekend I make a breakfast feast!

Although, imagine my horror viewing your post this morning and wishing I had a big bite of those pancakes!

Ahh! So glad I'm not the only one to think of the glorious part of the day that is breakfast whilst trying to go to bed! I'm a huge fan of pancakes but I have been doing non grain for a little over a month...I usually make egg/mashed banana pancakes with pumpkin(I eat it year round) or other fresh fruit on top drizzled with honey. I highly recommend it!! Great post! Thanks! ---Now we need your exercise regimen....cuz you seem like you got that on lock or your genes are a true blessing! :)

Siel said...

Haha I motivate myself to go to bed by thinking of what I'll be having for breakfast in the morning ;)

Love this recipe, looks so delicious!
