Banana Pecan Pancakes

When you're following a specialized diet, Saturday morning breakfast can be a bit of a trick!

I grew up having buttermilk pancakes with my grandma every Saturday that we could manage it and then the recipe got passed down to me and I made them for my family every weekend as well!

Here I created a delicious, fluffy, soft "buttermilk" pancake just like Grandma made. Of course if you don't tolerate dairy you can always omit the yogurt. You'll lose a little of the "buttermilk taste" but still excessively delicious. I make my yogurt homemade and allow 14 hours for the fermentation process. Most people that have dairy issues don't have a problem with this yogurt as it allows time for the offending lactose to be digested by the beneficial bacteria. 

These are also a healthier version of the sugar grain variety. They end up being more of a Builder based Congestor.  You don't always need meat to get your protein! I choose to nix the syrup and use my Raw Berry Sauce instead to make it a balanced functional meal. 

Here's how the Functional chart looks, with and without the berry sauce. I then added a side of cantaloupe and/or OJ for a perfectly balanced meal.  OJ is typical, but I like to take this time to add a Green Juice or Green Smoothie like this one.   It's a great way to balance Eliminators without them all coming from fruit. 

 The Recipe:

2 eggs

1/4c pure coconut milk

1 T maple syrup

1/4 c homemade yogurt, optional

1 T sunflower oil

1/2c banana flour

1/2c pecan flour

1tsp acv

Pinch salt

1 T coconut flour

Mix together the milk, eggs, maple syrup, yogurt, sunflower oil. Then add the flours and salt.  Sprinkle the baking soda on top, pour the apple cider vinegar over and allow to fizz. Add the coconut flour.

Use a 250 degree griddle and fry on both sides.


Raw Berry Sauce:

1 c blueberries, pureed 

1 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate

1/2c each raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, diced or sliced .
