I was totally going to start this post apologetically, but then I remembered this article in Huffington Post about the 23 things women should to stop doing. #sorrynotsorry
So instead I’m going to talk about how much I love pancakes, because all of a sudden I’m obsessed. Ok not really, I made them twice. Once pumpkin style and now these guys…
Really what I like about this is how full it keeps me. For someone who often thinks about eating lunch at 11am, these pancakes made me not even think about food until 1pm. Crazy, right? I’m totally pleased.
You should make these. Just saying…
Banana Protein Pancakes with Persimmon Topping
2 tbsp buckwheat flour
2 tbsp almond meal
3 tbsp protein powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of ginger
pinch of cinnamon1/2 banana, mashed (about 3 tbsp)
4 tbsp milk (or almond milk)*
1 tsp butter
1 persimmon, diced
2 tbsp rum
pinch of ginger
pinch of cinnamon
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir to combine. Heat a greased skillet over medium heat. Spoon 2 tbsp of batter to form each pancakes. Once the top starts to bubble, flip over and cook an additional minute. Plate and set aside.
Melt 1 tsp butter in a small skillet. Add persimmon and spices cook a few minutes, tossing occasionally. Add rum and stir. The liquid will steam and sizzle. Once it’s mostly evaporated, turn off and pour on top of pancakes. Serve with maple syrup (optional). This recipe makes 4-5 pancakes for 1 person.
*Note: the amount of milk necessary might vary depending on what type of protein powder you use. I used Spiru-tein which has a thickener in it. If you use a different protein powder, you might need less liquid.
Just to throw it out there, this persimmon topping would be totally awesome on the Pumpkin Protein Pancakes I made last week. Just saying… get your antioxidant on with pumpkins and persimmons.
Ok so enough about pancakes…
I go to Peru in two days and I’m totally not ready. So much work has to be done. I haven’t packed. I’m not feeling ready.
This always happens to me. I have mini anxiety attacks anytime I go anywhere. Weird right?
How do you prep for a trip? Also, what’s your favorite pancake combo because I’m always looking for new tasty ways to switch up breakfast!
