Strawberry-banana super food pancakes

NOM Nom!!
It’s breakfast time. Pancakes with a super healthy and filling twist are on the menu. The recipe is easy and requires about ten minutes of prep.

Ingredients:
2 Cups multigrain pancake mix (or your favorite plain mix)
1 1/3 cups organic almond milk
One large flax egg (1 tbsp flax to 4 tbsp hot water)
1 tbsp each milled chia and hemp seeds
2 tbsp light oil (sunflower, grapeseed, coconut)
1 ripe organic banana sliced
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cinnamon (optl but so good!)

Make flax egg first so it sets nicely, and while it’s setting mill your seeds in a clean coffee grinder or nutribullet with milling blade.

Setting flax egg

Milling the seeds allows for better absorption of all the bad ass nutrients in them! Plus they also act as thickening agents, holding your cakes together.

Otherwise they are just little fiber brooms (which isn’t bad either..) Mix all ingredients when ‘egg’ is set, cook on a greased griddle for 1-2 minutes on each side or until bubbles appear on the cake. Med heat is best, don’t burn these beauties!

Mmmm smells so good!

Get cray with that cinnamon! It’s so good for your blood sugar and your circulatory system. Plus it tastes Awesome. It’s also antiinflammatory. Zing!

Oh so good.

Top with strawberries and a wee drizzle of agave-maple syrup from Trader Joe’s, or your favorite syrup. Add more fruit too! If I had had fresh blueberries they would have donned my cakes too. Two cakes and I was full! So fiberlicious, omega-licious, and sweet.
Enjoy! Make a big batch and save some for another day. If there’s any left!

Eat clean and animal free. ❤
