Healthy Banana Pancakes

Healthy Pancakes can be sort of hard to come by. Most pancakes that you would order at a restaurant are just filled with sugar, carbs, and generally don’t contain a lot of healthy ingredients. Generic pancakes also put you in a sugar overload and can actually lead to a blood sugar slump and breakouts! But… pancakes are delicious! Plus, they are fun to make on the weekends, at sleep-overs, and when you just feel like relaxing and cooking. The recipe below is loaded with vitamins and minerals that will keep you healthy and full!

Ingredients (serves 2 to 4)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 cup Buckwheat Flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Spoonful of coconut oil
  • Handful of berries

Combine almond milk and vinegar and set aside. In a bowl together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and walnuts. In a separate bowl, mash banana with a fork. Mix in maple syrup, oil, egg, and almond milk mixture. Combine ingredients in one large bowl. Heat skillet and put a little oil in the pan. Scoop batter into appropriate amount and pour onto the pan. Cook, flip, and go until you have used all your batter! Top with berries, or more banana if you want!

Try this recipe out this weekend, or even make it for dinner as a little mid-week break! It is so easy and so delicious!
