Not a Saturday morning goes by where I don’t start craving pancakes! Warm and straight off the griddle, it would take one strong will to say no to a giant stack of pancakes.
But why should anyone have to say “no,” especially when pancakes can be a healthy, wholesome snack? I’m not a vegan, but I love this recipe that substitutes a little fruit and nut butter for eggs and oil. The result is one dense and delicious pancake.*Note pancake mixed used is not vegan.
Here’s what I’ve been whipping up lately:
Serves 2-3 people (depending on how hungry everyone is).
*Mash up one ripe, medium sized banana in mixing bowl.
*Add two heaping spoonfuls of organic creamy peanut or almond butter.
*Mix with fork to make a smooth paste.
*Add two cups of Trader Joe’s Multigrain Pancake Mix (fiberlicious!)
*Add one cup So Delicious Coconut Milk (I use vanilla) *Note: Soy, almond, or other milk substitutes can be used if desired.
*Stir until smooth.
*Pour 1/4 cup mix on hot griddle to form each pancake.
*Work some magic with your spatula and talent for timing!
*Serve hot with Trader Joe’s Organic Maple Agave Syrup Blend (I shop at TJ’s a lot…)
*Enjoy, rub your tummy, and say “yum!”
