Oh, Banana Pancakes,
even Jack Johnson would die for! They taste a little bit like banana bread or muffins :)
There is always a good excuse for Pancakes.
I got tired of my other recipe and tried to get a little bit more natural sweetness into it :)
Banana worked awesome and its amazing inside pancakes. Also the natural vanilla extract gives a nice twist. The pancakes are super fluffy and moist and so easy to make :)
These little Pancake beauties are Gluten free, vegan and sugar free!
ALL YOU NEED:
for one pancake batch
- One (over) ripe banana, mashed
- half a teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of sea salt
- one tsp of natural vanilla extract
- one cup of gluten-free flour, I used coconut flour but corn or buckwheat flour are great gf great too
- one cup of plant-based milk, I used my homemade vanilla cashew milk - find the recipe here
Optional: For extra sweetness have some honey, agave or maple syrup for topping
Bananas in Pyjamas!
Time to get naked!
Mix the dry ingredients
- Salt, baking powder and the gluten free flour -
In another bowl add the vanilla extract to the milk. Combine well!
Add your mashed banana to the flour mix and then gradually add the milk. Stir well.
Bake them golden.
On low to medium heat bake the pancakes- the slower the better. You want them to be nicely and fluffy. That happens if you cook them slow and wait until bubbles come up.
I found that my pancakes turned out best when I had the pancake dough sit and wait for half an hour. Also make sure that the milk you use is room temperature.
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT:
Combine the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder and the gluten free flour)
In another bowl add the vanilla extract to the milk.
Add your mashed banana to the dry flour mix and then gradually add the vanilla-milk. Stir well.
On low to medium heat bake the pancakes until golden- the slower the better. You want them to be nicely and fluffy.
Serve and enjoy warm with extra banana slices and some maple syrup.
It's cold juice, dude!
Together with my best banana pancakes I had the pleasure to enjoy a fresh and natural cold pressed juice from the JuiceDudes. Thank you very much for the surprise! That made my day!
If you don't have time or a juicer to make your own juice these juices are a great alternative! I tried them all and I must say they taste very fresh and good! Nothing compared to those other ready made supermarket juices or smoothies you normally get. You can tell the good quality ingredients and food handling. It tastes REAL.
Don't panic, its organic!
All ingredients are organic and hand picked. No nasties, additives, preservatives or food colouring needed (YES. You DO find them in many of other juices to keep them looking great in the supermarket shelves for weeks!)
They are not meant for detox, but for nourishing your body with essential minerals and vitamins. This is especially important to a balanced diet as an active person. With their special technique of cold pressing the juices all essential nutrients go directly from the fruits and veggies into the bottle.
Drink in colour.
The juices come in three different flavours.
"Scharfe Rübe" is an ORANGE juice. The orange colour comes from beta carotene (most likely found in carrot and pumpkin). It is great for a glowing skin! The ginger boosts your metabolism and fights any illnesses. The natural ingredients of the juice are: carrot, apple, sweet potato, pumpkin and ginger.
"Life Generator" is a GREEN juice with spinach. The high amount of chlorophyll (which is in green leafy plants) helps your body to recover. Therefore, it has a rejuvenating and purifying effect which is great for a healthy beauty. The natural ingredients of the juice are: apple, cucumber, spinach, celery and lemon.
"Dr. Heart Beat", is a RED juice. The red colour of fruits and veggies contains many antioxidants which is great to strengthen your immune system. Dr. Heart Beat was my personal favourite. I loved the combination of beetroot and spicy ginger. The natural ingredients of the juice are: apple, beetroot, carrot, blood orange, red cabbage and ginger.
Have your juice, dude!
It is perfect as a refresher or daily dose. It so good for you and will make you feel great!
It is 100% raw, 100% organic, 100% cold pressed, 100% unpasteurised and 100% vegan.
