Breakfast idea

Do you sometimes get tired of eating the same old food/s for breakfast (you are eating breakfast right?)?  If you answered yes, then you are like most people, myself included.  Keeping meals exciting is one way to help keep you eating healthy.

I have listed an alternative recipe for one of Americas favorite breakfasts'...pancakes.  I found this on the Paleo Plan website.  Very simple to prepare and cook, yet taste exceptional good.  If you are looking for some added protein (there isn't much in the recipe), you can add some protein powder.  This is a great recipe for someone who is gluten-free as well.

I have made these just about every weekend and they continue to taste amazing.  I like how moist the pancakes remain, vs. when using flour (all different kinds) they seem to dry out a tad.  This recipe makes about four 4" pancakes.  Let me know your thoughts and if you liked them or not.

   1.  Banana Almond Pancakes

        2 bananas
            1 egg
           1-2 Tbs almond butter
           fresh blueberries
           1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
           1 tsp. coconut oil

1.       Mash bananas in a bowl.
2.      Add the egg and almond butter, and whisk until well blended.
3.      Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat along with a small pat of coconut oil.
4.      Pour small discs of batter onto the hot pan (around 3-4" around). They'll be easier to flip if you keep them from the edges of the pan.
5.       Add blueberries and walnuts as the pancakes cook on one side. Flip when batter loses its "tackiness" around the edges.
6.      Cook other side slowly over medium heat until fully cooked.
7.       Reapply oil to the pan after each round of pancakes.
