Megan’s Family Favorite Pancake Recipe

 

Ingredients

 

Instructions

  • Mash bananas or add to Vitamix.
  • Add almond milk, eggs and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix the batter gently and try not to over mix. The batter should be thick for fluffy pancakes.
  • Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Using 1/4 cup as a measure, scoop the batter onto the skillet.
  • In about 1 minute you should see some bubbles appear. Flip the pancake over and fry for another minute. Repeat this step with the remaining batter. You should have  about 8 pancakes.
  • Top with fresh fruit, a nut butter  and drizzle with maple syrup.
