Tuesday. Delay for both girls due to some rain that froze overnight. So I got to the gym early this morning and then rushed home to make the girls a nice big breakfast. A perk of a 2 hour delay. I normally don’t make pancakes all that much since my daughter went gluten free but today I thought it fitting. This would be a great Valentine’s Day breakfast idea. Even make these ahead of time – and reheat. Just add some berries as a side dish and a fun mimosa or fresh squeezed juice for a memorable. love-themed breakfast or brunch.
This makes a big batch of pancakes. I store extra pancakes in tupperware and warm them in the morning- which is great for quick on-the-go breakfast for teens as they get up late and rush out the door.
2 ripe bananas, peeled
2 tablespoons of your favorite nut butter – I used Justin’s
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups of Bob’s RedMill 1 to 1 gluten free flour
1 cup of gluten free rolled oats – I used Bob’s Redmill
1/4 cup of ground flax meal
2 tablespoon of coconut palm sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of almond, soy or cashew milk (vanilla unsweetened)
Optional: 1/2 cup of mini vegan chocolate chips
In a bowl, whisk your flour, oats, flax, sugar, powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In your stand mixer, paddle attached, blend the nut butter, extract and bananas until mashed and smooth. Then add the dry mixture to the stand mixture along with the milk and blend until incorporated. If using chips – add and mix by hand.
Heat a cast iron pan or skillet. Spray with coconut spray and using a 1/4 cup scoop – ladle the batter onto a hot pan. Cook over medium heat for a minute or two, until browned, then flip. Store in a warming drawer or oven at 170 degrees until all of the pancakes are made. Then serve.
As I mentioned earlier, I did manage to sneak off to the gym despite a 2 hour delay. I thankfully only had a short run day today, which I would’ve preferred to do outside but not on icy roads so I opted for the gym. I then decided to abs and walk on the treadmill a bit to shake out my legs.
Monday: 5 treadmill/weights/core/balance
Tuesday: 3.5 speed work/abs
Pretty low key so far this week. I’ve been rolling out my legs a lot and stretching.
That’s it from here kids. See you soon!
