Paleo-Friendly Banana Collagen Pancakes
I love pancakes for breakfast but don’t want to sacrifice my diet for them, so I created a recipe that is both satisfying and healthy as well as packed with great fiber and protein. To cut down on sugar, I top mine with almond butter instead of maple syrup, making these a guilt-free breakfast!
Bananas are known for being high in potassium, which they are, but they also have a great amount of vitamin C and vitamin B6. They are high in natural sugar, so you do not need to add any refine sugar to satisfy that sweet tooth. Flax seeds are high in omega 3's, but you have to make sure they are ground to unleash that nutritional power.
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 cup of flax meal
2/3 cup of almond flour
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 scoop of Boomer Collagen Peptides
Splash of water or almond milk
- Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl
- Add coconut oil to a large non-stick pan on the stove on medium heat
- Add about a 2.5 inch in diameter sized pancake batter to the pan and let cook until bubbles start to form in the middle (I usually fit 4 pancakes in the pan at a time). You may not get many bubbles with this batter, but make sure to wait to flip until the pancake is browned on the bottom.
- Flip and cook until browned on the other side
- Top with almond butter and freshly sliced bananas
