Alright mountain yogis, anyone else absolutely love having slow, relaxing mornings where you make the absolute best coffee and a bomb breakfast? Surely some people nodded yes. The catch, though? Not eating so heavy that you can’t leave the couch all day and not pursue your mountain activities or make it to yoga.
I absolutely need these mornings to simply slow down for a bit when working the standard 8-5, maintaining a life and then working on getting my booty outside.
Well, I created these delicious and healthy banana pancakes to conquer both the indulgent and healthy requirements. Perfect for your Sunday morning. *Cue ‘Easy Like a Sunday Morning’*.
If you need more ways to create better work-life balance (and let’s be real, who doesn’t?!), I have you covered here!
These are perfect for your pre-yoga or mountain activity to power you up and still allow you to have a relaxing start to the day. Pancakes plus yoga and fresh air? I call that a weekend win!
Below you’ll find the deets about making these wonderful pancakes to power up your weekend. Give them a try and let me know how you liked them!
½ C Almond Flour
½ C Oats
1 t Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1 t Vanilla
1 t Cinnamon
1 Mashed Banana
½ C Almond Milk
1 T Peanut Butter
About the ingredients…
If you’re looking for a vegan substitution, you can work with 1T of melted coconut oil or a ‘chia egg’ instead of the egg. To make the chia egg, mix 1t of chia seeds and 2 ½ T of water and let sit for five minutes before adding.
I also chose to chop three squares of dark chocolate and place in my batter – delicious, but a tad less healthy. Leave out the chocolate if you prefer a no-added-sugar version.
Don’t like peanut butter? Take it out or swap it out! Let your creative process take over and make your own version. The world is your… pancake? 🙂
- Heat 1t of coconut oil over a skillet and bring to medium heat
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
- Scoop ¼ C of batter per pancake into the heated skillet. The batter should sizzle.
- Cook pancakes on first side until they begin to fluff and rise – about three minutes. Flip onto the other side and cook for another two to three minutes.
- Finish off pancakes with your favorite toppings! A couple options I love are berries, real maple syrup, peanut butter, or homemade whipped cream. Or a combination of any of these. 🙂
