Vegan Banana Protein Pancakes 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Looking to add a little oomph to your breakfast? These banana protein pancakes might just fit the bill. This recipe is non Dairy and is gluten free.
Native to the Caribbean and Central America, bananas are one of America's favorite fruits. They are rich in potassium - one banana contains 450 mg of potassium, one-fifth of the adult daily requirement - and offer a fair share of magnesium (33 mg), too. In addition, bananas help to strengthen the stomach lining and are good for soothing indigestion.


Ingredients:
1 large banana, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, rice etc.)
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 serving vanilla Vegan Protein (Vega or any vegan brand)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp coconut oil

Optional Toppings: Banana slices, chopped nuts, maple or agave syrup


Directions:
Whisk together non-dairy milk, mashed banana and vanilla extract. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix remaining dry ingredients.

Incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, mix until just combined. Add more non-dairy milk if batter appears too thick.

Melt coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat, or use a griddle .
Add a quarter cup of the batter into the pan. Flip once bubbles have formed and popped (approximately 2 minutes per side).

Top with fresh fruit, nuts, or syrup and enjoy!

Greek Islands Tour - October 2019 - Host Maria O'Farrell Carr


Wellness Tip
Five minute de-stressors
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.

Description: What is a vegan? What is veganism?

Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients.

Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself. That is, the word vegan can be an adjective used to describe a food item, as in, "This curry is vegan", or, it can be used as a noun, as in, "Vegans like cookies, too."

What do vegans eat?

This is perhaps the most common question about veganism. A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits and the nearly infinite number of foods made by combining them.

In addition, many vegan versions of familiar foods are available, so you can eat vegan hot dogs, ice cream, cheese and vegan mayonnaise along with the more familiar veggie burgers. Many foods are associated with veganism, such as soy milk and tofu, but many non-vegans also enjoy tofu, and you certainly don't have to like tofu in order to eat vegan.

Vegans also eat many of the same common and familiar every day foods such as a green salad, spaghetti, and chips and salsa which just about everyone eats. For example, foods such as a vegetarian burrito without cheese or sour cream would be vegan, a vegetarian Thai curry made from coconut milk is vegan, pasta with tomato sauce or another non-meat and non-dairy sauce is vegan, and most breads are vegan.
