Healthy banana pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour (I use Organic Unbleached White All Purpose Flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions

  1. Puree the bananas with a potato masher or fork.
  2. Add the almond milk and eggs and whisk until smooth.
  3. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix the batter gently and try not to over mix. A few lumps are fine. If the mixture looks too thin, add a little extra flour.
  4. Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Using 1/4 cup as a measure, scoop the batter onto the skillet.
  5. In about 1 minute you should see some bubbles appear. Flip the pancake over and fry for another minute. Repeat this step with the remaining batter. You should have 6 pancakes.
  6. Garnish with fresh bananas and drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy!

Heart shaped churros

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of slightly stale bread
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoon milk
  • A few drops of vanilla-optional
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter for frying
  • 2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Nuttela, chocolate or maple syrup for serving

Directions

    1. Using a small heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the hearts. Stale bread is recommended because it will soak up more egg mixture without falling apart. If the bread is not stale the hearts will lose their shape.
    2. Beat the egg with milk, vanilla and salt, set aside.
    3. Combine cinnamon and brown sugar and set aside.
    4. In a pan over medium-high heat melt the butter, reduce the heat to medium-low.
    5. Dip each heart in egg mixture to coat both sides, but don’t let it soak too much liquid or they will lose their shape and shake off excess egg mixture.
    6. Place the bread in the pan and fry about 45 seconds per side.
    7. Transfer the hearts in cinnamon-brown sugar mixture to coat well and end serve immediately
