If you’re just now catching up with me, welcome to my (mostly) meatless world!
Now what kind of woman would I be if I didn’t give you guys a post with a recipe? That’s what you’re here for right? (and of course to take in all of my awesomeness, jk jk) 😉
And what better way to kick off the recipes than with…BREAKFAST?! (woot woot!)
This recipe has me so excited I just couldn’t wait to share.
Pardon my midwest slang, but I can eat breakfast food ALL DAY, ERRDAY. Lol.
Seriously though, I live for all things breakfast, brunch, all of that. Of course, the usual breakfast template for the western world is riddled with high-fat processed meats and meat byproducts. We don’t have to limit ourselves to this alone though.
I’m here to tell you: Sausage, Bacon, & Steak, does not a breakfast make!
(Not always, at least)
I promise you can have an amazing, fulfilling, easy to make breakfast, without any of these western breakfast staples.
I heard a song once called “Banana Pancakes” by a guy named Jack Johnson. It’s the perfect Saturday morning lazy song. And up until I heard it, I’d only ever tasted pancakes made from a mix of flour, eggs, & milk. Ihop & Aunt Jemima could do no wrong in my eyes. The song alone was catchy, but when I figured out how to make pancakes out of bananas….oh, baby it was on like popcorn!
If you’re lazy like me, don’t worry, the base recipe only calls for 3 main ingredients.
*If you like fluffier pancakes add about ¼ tsp baking powder
Banana Oat Pancakes
- 2 Very Ripe Bananas (the blacker the better, you’ll need the mushiness)
- 1 Cup oats
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
- Mash Bananas with a fork
- Place mashed bananas in a blender
- Add Oats and Vanilla extract to blender
- Heat skillet with oil
- Pour mixture into skillet
- Top uncooked pancake with your add-ins (See Below)
- Flip and cook the other side
- Once finished cooking on both sides, transfer to plate & enjoy!
The best part about this recipe is that you can add in whatever you want to the base recipe.
A few flavor combinations to try include:
- Shredded Carrot & Walnuts
- Chopped Apples & Cinammon
- Chocolate Chips & Raspberries
- Pineapples & Coconut flakes
Or my personal favorite…Blueberries!
You can pair these beauties with some syrup, honey, agave, Nutella, cookie butter, or even fresh fruit.
And that’s breakfast, baby!
Give this quick breakfast recipe a try & let me know if you love it.
Stay (mostly) meatless :-*
