Banana Scramble

I know that the words “banana” and “scramble” don’t go well together, but this recipe will definitely surprise you. It tastes like banana bread pudding more than a scramble, so it can be eaten as breakfast or dessert.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp of coconut oil
1 medium very ripe banana, mashed
1 egg
2 tbsp of almond meal or 1/2 tbsp of coconut flour *
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1 1/2 tbsp of raisins

Preparation:

  • Heat the coconut oil in a skillet.
  • Whisk all the rest of the ingredients together and pour into the skillet.
  • Wait until the bottom browns a little bit before scrambling the dough, scramble a couple of times, wait for it the brown, scramble again, wait for it to brown and repeat until it is fully cooked.

The trick is to let the banana caramelize before you start scrambling it.

*This recipe works a lot better with almond flour.

Almond Flour Pancakes

Way tastier than regular pancakes and a little more dense… It’s like eating cake for breakfast!

Ingredients:

3 eggs
1 1/2 cup of almond flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup of water
4 dates
1/2 tsp of baking soda
Pinch of salt
Coconut oil for cooking

Preparation:

  • Blend all ingredients together until dates are dissolved.
  • Heat a skillet or griddle to low-medium heat.
  • Melt some coconut oil and pour some batter making 3 inch pancakes.
  • Flatten out a little using the back of the spoon.
  • Once the top starts to bubble, turn and cook until the center is fully cooked.

Makes about 10-12

Eat by  themselves or top with almond butter, fresh berries or date paste

The trick is to make them small so they are not hard to turn and cook them on low heat.
