With Mother’s Day being less than 2 weeks away, I thought I’d share a special Paleo recipe for anyone who’s looking for gluten free dairy free pancakes. Honestly, I don’t remember where I first came across the idea of mashing bananas and egg yolks into pancakes. Believe it or not, you can find all kinds of banana based recipes all over the internet!
I mentioned in my previous post that I recently added back the occasional egg yolk to my diet, after a year without any eggs at all. That’s the thing about food sensitivities, it’s possible to heal from them, after removing them from your diet for a while.
About once a month now, I’m letting myself have either these pancakes or soft boiled egg yolks. So far, so good. As for dairy and gluten, no such luck. I think I will be doing without them for life. And that’s okay, because I’m really enjoying my new way of eating.
So, here’s my version of banana pancakes, just in time for strawberry season!
The one on the left is from a hen raised on pasture. When chickens eat the weeds, bugs, and grass they were meant to eat, they harvest the energy from the sun. The egg yolk is richer in color, because it contains more nutrients, including omega 3 fat.
Which one would you rather eat?
We’re seeing a lot more sun now, but even on a rainy spring day, you can still take it in if you choose pasture based animal protein sources. Quality matters a lot more than the media makes it seem!
A little bit of sunshine can go a long way. We can’t spend all day soaking it in, but we can eat our way to a brighter future.
For another banana based recipe (a cool summer treat), try my simple dairy free ice “cream!”
Have a healthy, happy day.
Wishing you peace, joy, and sunshine,
