I first revealed my almond banana pancakes again in June 2014. We made them typically again then, earlier than I created my buckwheat oat pancakes and began making them nearly each Sunday. This previous weekend I used to be reminded of this recipe although, and the way after we had been coaching for the Nantucket triathlon, it was the one full breakfast Tim was capable of eat and nonetheless really feel wonderful coaching a few hours later. Even if he seemingly digests tremendous shortly more often than not, he by no means needs to eat breakfast with me earlier than a weekend exercise and opts for an RX bar, sq. bar, or home made vitality bar as an alternative, saying he’ll really feel too full.

For those who’re gluten free, substituting buckwheat flour or a cup-for-cup gluten free flour mix for the entire wheat flour would seemingly work nicely. Along with sliced banana and a few 85% darkish chocolate chips, I extremely suggest some unsweetened shredded coconut to high off these almond banana pancakes.
Oh, and bonus tip: when you’re in a rush, make an on-the-go pancake taco by throwing a banana within the center, topping together with your favourite nut or seed butter, folding, and heading out the door! I’m all about conscious consuming, however I’m extra about consuming than not consuming, too.
