Easy Plantain Pancakes


By Sofia

Not only is this recipe grain free, packed with protein and antioxidants, it's quite easy - and it's PANCAKES! 

Recipe makes about 15 four-inch diameter pancakes

Batter-y goodness.

Batter-y goodness.

  1. Add to blender in any order:
    •  2 -3 scoops of protein powder to blender 
    • 1/2 cup of mixed berries
    • 4 whole eggs (pasture raised if possible)
    • 2 plantains (peeled and chopped)
    • 2 bananas (peeled and chopped)
    • 1 large or 1.5 medium chopped beets 
    • 1 cup almond milk (dairy milk and water fine too if you prefer)
    • cinnamon to taste
  2. Blend until its a smooth consistency (like regular pancake batter)
  3. Pour batter onto buttered fry pan, griddle, etc and  cook until light/medium brown on each side.
    • We usually flip it once the first side is firm enough so that we can flip without the pancake falling apart.
    • Smaller pancakes are a lot easier to handle but we have made batches of   4-5 large pancakes as well.
We added chocolate chips to this pancake to help with Sofia's bulk.
