I know what your wondering, is she a Vegan?  No I am not a vegan.  I am taking baby steps to improving what I think is a better diet for me and my family.  So, after lots of research and even more research after that we have decided to start our new healthy living lifestyle journey.  Thinking that we were doing the best for our family already there are always ways to improve your lifestyle.  This has been an absolute nightmare!  Did I say that?  Eeek!  Not to scare you but, I am absolutely overwhelmed with the extensive amounts of foods that contain GMO’s (genetically modified organisms), artificial flavors, artificial colors and preservatives.  But, I will do my best to avoid as many of those monsters as much as possible.  So we would love your feed back or share your healthy eating and lifestyle tips with us and we can learn and grow together.  So, let’s get started on the recipe shall we?  My first vegan recipe Vegan banana pancakes.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Serves 4-6
3 cups oat flour (we made our oat flour)
3 tablespoons of flax seeds (ground to flax flour for flax eggs)
(add 4 tablespoons of water to the flax flour to make flax eggs)
2 ripe bananas (choose the bananas with spots)
1/4 coconut oil
1/2 cup almond milk
(add a little milk to your batter if the batter is to thick)

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Here we have our ground oat flour and flax egg mixture.  You can follow along with our video as we demonstrate how to complete these delicious pancakes from start to finish.

Preheat your griddle to medium/high heat and add coconut oil to the griddle to coat the surface before adding your pancake batter.
In a large bowl mix your dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl combine all of you wet ingredients.

Smash your ripe bananas and mix them in with you wet ingredients.  Now it’s time to combine your wet and dry ingredients together.  This couldn’t get any easier right?  Once combined mix well.

Slice some delicious strawberries to layer on each pancake or add what ever toppings you like.

Place your batter on the griddle and give them a press to flatten them out.  Once your pancakes are golden brown on each side they are ready to take off the griddle.  They should be ready in about 7 minutes. Oh yes I am a fan of these little round delights.  They are a bit more dense than a pancake cooked with flour but, you can taste the homemade goodness in every bite.   Vegan-banana-pancakes-4

There is something about a warm pancakes drizzled with maple syrup that warms you up in the morning and starts the day off right.  Or maybe your treating yourself to a homemade breakfast over the weekend because during the week your in to much of a  rush to pull this off.  Either way you will be adding this to your recipe box I’m sure of it!  Who knew you could eat Vegan food and it would taste so good.  Usually when someone says Vegan recipe your mind drifts to a tasteless simple salad and fruit.  But, Vegan and Vegetarian recipes are changing and they are getting better and better, if I might say so myself.  Enjoy my beautiful friends, enjoy!
