Hello fellow Sandia CrossFitters!
I am Audrey and if you haven't yet met me, I am a boot camper who completely fell in love with CrossFit and have since been crashing your big kid workouts. I will be bringing you paleo recipes during the next 45 days of the paleo challenge (and beyond!). I hope these recipes prove to be delicious, fun and most importantly helpful!
I figured I'd start out with a recipe that literally blew my mind when I found it: paleo banana pancakes with only TWO (or three) ingredients!
Start by blending just the bananas and eggs together until well blended, but not frothy.
After blending, if the "batter" is too thin you can add the almond meal to thicken it up a bit and just whisk/stir to combine.
Next, melt a dab of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Test the pan by adding just a drop of the batter - when the oil bubbles lightly, the pan is ready. Pour the batter in the pan in about 1/4 cup pours.
When bubbles start coming through the pancake, it is ready to flip.
Cook for a minute or so more on the other side, and check to see if it is browned. Done!
Continue until you use up all the batter. I would say I got about 12 pancakes out of the recipe.
Finally, serve with bacon! Delicious toppings could include almond butter, raw honey, pure maple syrup, fresh berries, etc.
I thought they were absolutely delicious! I am excited to try this recipe with plantains next time.
Leftovers are easily refrigerated and popped into a toaster to reheat.
Please comment with any questions and let me know how you like it! Also, feel free to give me any specific requests. More lunch ideas, desserts, etc.?
Until next time... happy paleo eating!
