|Nut Butter Pancakes
A friend of mine posted a recipe for pancakes made only with oats, bananas, peanut butter, and eggs, and although I know I had made something similar, I couldn't find it on my blog. That's because like dozens of other recipes I have made over the past few months, it was still in my draft folder. Not exactly the same as the one she shared, but just as deliciously healthy for you. And gluten free for those of you that need to avoid flour. Because they are made primarily with nut butter and eggs, as well as almond flour, the are very high in protein compared to regular pancakes. I did use chocolate hazelnut butter (one with less sugar than Nutella, although that would be delicious!), so if you opt to use all almond butter or peanut butter or something with less added sugar, you may want to add in a mashed banana, or a few tablespoons of maple syrup, honey, or organic sugar, or just add more syrup on top when eating them. I actually ate mine plain however, because they were so flavorful. I did amend the recipe to add soymilk (or whatever milk you prefer) because my husband said they were too thick to cook properly without burning them slightly. I didn't mind, but as with all pancake recipes, you can adjust the ingredients slightly to get the pouring consistency you and your family prefer. Either way, next time you're craving a hearty pancake breakfast, definitely give this recipe a try. You won't be disappointed!
