Happy Halloween errybody! I had to get up super early this morning because I'm going to Spain this week WOAH and on Halloween?! It's gonna be awesome. So I whipped up these pancakes that I first saw on the lovely Naturally Meghan blog, and made a couple variations to adjust to my own taste. This recipe is SO healthy because it has flaxseed, cacao, maca AND a sneaky extra serving of fruit. Here we go:
2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flaxseed + 6 tbsp of water) (you can use 2 real eggs if your diet allows you to!)
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp of maca powder (more or less to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup non dairy milk
1 ripe banana (mashed)
First, make your flax eggs by combining the flaxseed and water. Let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but I recommend doing it overnight.
Pancake time: combine all the dry ingredients (buckwheat, cacao, maca, baking powder), mix well.
Then, add your flax eggs, vanilla, milk and banana. Mix well again. It should be a cake-like thickness. If you want thinner pancakes, add more milk!
Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat (or use a little bit of oil, not too much). Put a heaping spoonful (about 1/4 cup) of batter onto the pan, and let cook until it starts to bubble, about a minute or two. Flip and let it cook for another minute.
Add with your favorite nut butter, crushed nuts, fruit, I DON'T CARE THEY'RE YOUR PANCAKES.
Happy Halloween everyone, treat yourself today!!
