Pancake Tuesday’s anyone? I was craving pancakes this morning and I had to have some, even though i’m trying to ween myself off flour based meals for now so I can kick start my detox, (all the flours I use are gluten free by the way). However, my body wanted some pancakes this morning, so I decided to give it what it wanted! And why not? You have to listen to your body and give it what it wants, because if you don’t, it will work against you at some point. But that doesn’t go without saying that you shouldn’t feed your body processed junk foods, because that will work against you too. You can train your body to crave clean and healthy meals that are just as delicious and more nutritious than junk food. So have these yummy pancakes! I Topped these babies with homemade sugar free spicy blackberry jam and unsweetened coconut flakes. Recipe for spicy blackberry jam can be found on the “sides and others” category my blog (type in “jam” in the search bar and you’ll find it πŸ™‚

Recipe:

2 tbsp organic gluten free oat flour
1 tbsp organic coconut flour
1 organic cage free egg and 2 egg whites
1 scoop gardens life raw vanilla protein powder
1 small organic banana
1 tbsp organic natural peanut butter
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk.
Spicy sugar free blackberry jam (for topping)

Mix batter together in a bowl and fry on skillet over medium heat with coconut oil (1/4 tsp for each). Top with toppings of choice and enjoy!
