Weekend Mornings can be a good time for a special breakfast. My daughter always looked forward to going to breakfast with my parents. Pancakes were one of her favorites. But if you go out they are make with milk, eggs, and butter with a sugary sauce and an big slab of butter when served. They leave you feeling full and bloated with little energy for the rest of the day. That is why people drink so much coffee when they eat breakfast out. Below is a recipe that is filling and healthy but does not leave you bloated or sluggish. You don’t need spray oil or butter to fry. These are nice and light and do not stick to the pan. Just cook on medium heat and they turn out golden brown. Enjoy.
2 cups whole wheat or buckwheat flour if gluten intolerant
1 cup corn meal-(not corn flour)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 ripe banana
1 container apple sauce
1/2 cup water
1/5 cups almond milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Directions: Place banana, apple sauce, almond milk and water in the blender and blend until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until batter is thick but pours easily. About like a thick smoothie.
Drop onto a hot griddle, top with blueberries and cook on medium until bubbles for throughout. Flip and cook another 3 or 4 minutes. Serve with maple syrup or jam.
