Banana Butter Pancakes (gluten and dairy free)

Posted Apr 02 2011 12:52pm 2 Comments
It's Saturday! One of my favorite days to make a big and special breakfast with my family. Today we made a special banana pancake with almond butter, which is why these are called "Banana Butter Pancakes." They are so chewy and have a perfectly sweet taste with the added banana and butta'. If you want to drizzle some organic maple syrup or agave, then you have it made!
I love pancakes. There are many ways you can whip them up to be a healthy breakfast. Added pumpkin , fruit or even vegetables and you have a easy way to eat your basic food groups. Don't let yourself get bored with breakfast- make something special and celebrate another day! Every day is a gift and it is important to live for all it is worth. I am reminded of that today as there is so much hurt, pain and troubles in the world. I am so thankful for every day that I get to spend with my loved ones, eat real food and be blessed by God's love and mercy. So many times it is easy to compare your life to others and wish you had something they had.... a "normal-easier" diet, a skinnier waistline, a larger bank account, the list goes on and on. But if you had it, would you be happier, or still wanting something else? I bet the people that do have the "normal-easier" diet, skinnier waistline and larger bank account still want something you have, so it is a vicious circle.

Eating gluten-free can sometimes make you wish for a life of normalcy or a different life in general. You just want to be normal when you go to that restaurant, or out with your friends... you just wish you didn't have to read all the labels and be such a good planner and shopper. Friend, you are not alone. There are many of us. And, we are doing ok, and we are celebrating that we can live gluten-free! Just remember that living gluten-free actually allows you to live. Living with the limitations actually allows you to be better in your day in and day out. You can run the race, you can celebrate with friends, and you can eat those pancakes...Yeah, you can eat those pancakes. It is a good life living gluten-free. So don't try to hide it. Don't try and wish for something else. You got a gift my friend, it is a life of abundance and love. Don't give up on yourself. Keep looking for new ways to celebrate this life you have been given and take nothing for granted!Banana Butter Pancake Recipe1/2 cup of corn flour1/4 brown rice flour1/4 cup of millet flour1 TB of coconut palm sugar1 cup of non-dairy milk ( I used So Delicious Coconut Milk )2 ts. of baking powder1 TB of light olive oil3 TB of creamy almond butter1 cup of mushed ripe banana1 fresh egg, or egg substitute

Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and pour with a ladle or 1/4 cup measuring cup little cakes into a oiled frying pan or griddle. If you are wondering ho much oil, use about a spoonful-amount. Or use ghee, that works great too. Cook on each side on medium heat for about 2 minutes or until they turn fluffy with no gooey middles. If you want to press your spatula on the pancake to check if it is done, there will be no oozing batter when done.
This recipe makes about 6-8 small pancakes. Enough for 2-3 people. Double this recipe if you want to make enough for 4-6 people. Or, they also freeze really well, so make a big batch and have them in the freezer for an easy thaw out in the morning for a quick on the go breakfast.
Some good toppings for pancakes:chopped raw seeds or nutsfresh fruitfresh jamtoasted coconut or seeds
Drizzle with some organic maple syrup or agave nectar, top with some fresh fruit or a smoothie on the side and you have a hearty yummy, special breakfast!

Now I must go enjoy this day with my family. I hope you do too! Have a happy Saturday and much love to you as always!
