We’ve talked at length about whether or not breakfast was really the most important meal of the day, but one fact remains - I’ve never met anyone in their right mind who didn’t love breakfast.
I’m in the same boat - and though I’m not really a sweet breakfast kind of person, once in a while I just want to have a slow morning where I let the day start slow, full of promises. On those days, I tend to make pancakes.
This is my favourite pancake recipe - it is packed with vegetables and protein, and the pancakes are fairly neutral in flavour so the toppings you choose really shine, just how I like them. Some ideas for pancake toppings:
Peach slices (fresh or frozen) and pumpkin seeds
Peanut butter sauce (or powdered PB) and berry puree (just set some frozen berries to simmer on the stove for 15-ish minutes, and combine peanut butter with a bit of almond milk; heat in the microwave until it takes a runny consistency. Perfect for drizzling)
Cacao nibs and banana
Blueberries and almond butter
Maple syrup and… anything, really!
The recipe serves one rather hungry individual, but you could also split it between two if you used the pancakes as a side during brunch.
Let me know if you try them!
