The big adventure of my morning was making paleo pancakes! Now I don’t normally focus on switching up my breakfast food. Probably because i’m usually so tired in the mornings that I don’t really care what i’m eating, I just am hungry so i’m going to make what’s quick and easy. This usually consists of a piece of whole wheat or brown bread, english muffin with an egg and a cheese slice. This morning…pancakes! What a thought. Having pancakes for breakfast in the middle of the week?
First…I will paste the recipe below, but the one I decided to try was from the following site http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/paleo-pancakes-recipe/ The reason I chose this one was because of the ingredients. Rather, the fact that it only had three ingredients. THREE!! I figure if I can successfully get myself to work in the mornings, I can certainly mush three things up in a bowl and cook them.
Paleo Pancakes Recipe
The great thing about paleo pancakes is they are super simple to make. Case in point: this only takes 3 ingredients.
- 2 Ripe Bananas
- 1 Egg
- 1 Heaping Tablespoon of Almond Butter
Paleo Pancake Directions
Again, the directions for this dish are deceivingly simple:
- Mash Up The Bananas
- Add In the Egg and mix into the batter
- Stir in the almond butter to the mix (more almond butter = more pancake-y type texture)
- Cover pan with butter or coconut oil
- Cook the pancakes until brown on each side
- Top with fruit as needed
With this I cooked two big pancakes. I think for next time I would actually cook 4 smaller one’s, as it takes a big longer for the middle to cook. I might also try using coconut oil in the pan instead of olive oil as that seems to cook off quite quickly. I also want to see if this is something I can make a bunch of and freeze so I can quickly microwave them for breakfast or for a snack.
One other thing i’ve noticed. Peeing! No shit…low carb, higher protein…you’re peeing every half hour! That might be a stretch but it feels like i’m in there quite alot. Like I need to reserve a stall just for me.
In a nutshell (no paleo pun intended) everything is going well!
