I have adult braces, although why I feel the need to add “adult” as an adjective, I don’t know. I’m obviously (biologically) an adult.
Anyway, I just got a heavier wire on my adult braces, and my teeth hurt. I was inspired by my recent success with PaleOMG Carrot Cake Pancakes and in need of some soft food, which led me to try these pancakes:
These have no “alternative” flour such as almond meal or coconut flour. Just three ingredients: banana, almond butter, and egg. I mashed the banana, added the egg and almond butter and some cinnamon, and mixed. I heated some coconut oil and commenced pancake frying.
There might be a knack to these, but I just didn’t get it. Even over medium heat, I burned the first batch. It seemed that by the time these delicate pancakes were cooked enough to flip, they had burned.
On my second attempt, I flipped while they were still mushy, which prevented burning but didn’t get me much of a crust.
These don’t even *look* appetizing, do they? They tasted okay though, especially where I did manage to get a crust. Luckily I had other food to eat (asparagus frittata and chicken sausage).
I had a little bit of batter left, so I did make a third attempt. I added in some extra almond butter and hovered over them like a mother bird.
Sigh. Edible? Yes. Highest use of a ripe banana? No. (This is the highest use of a ripe banana, IMO!)
In the future, I’ll stick to my old almond blueberry pancake recipe, which I also adapted from Mark Sisson.
