Banana Pancakes

A delicious healthy recipe as a substitute to regular pancakes 

Recently, I have started slowly reducing my added sugar intake because I felt that I was getting tired too quickly and slowly drifting away from being fit. The journey so far ( by the way it has been a week) has been exhausting especially the first few days. While I’m not eliminating my sugar intake. I still have some here and there, I’m trying my best to cut down sugars to the best of my abilities.

Here is a little recipe that I used to make pancakes as oppose to the regular way of making pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 riped Bananas – mashed
  • 3 tablespoons of flour 
  • 1 tablespoon of  peanutbutter – note some peanutbutter has added sugar I used one without 
  • 1 Tablespoon of cinammon 
  • 1 tablespoon of butter 
  • 4 mashed dates – I reccomend using a foodprocessor, simply add water and blend for 2-3min

i.e. The perfect snack. 

Ingredients:

* 1 cup of dates.
* 1/2 cup of walnuts
* 1/2 cup of shredded coconut
* 4 tablespoons of Peanutbutter (optional I love peanutbutter in everything).
* 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
* A tad bit of milk

In a food processor, blend them together until you get a doughy consistency and shape into balls.  

Note: A little advice is to use date pastry instead of actual dates the consistency is ready to be made into energy balls unlike the actual dates.
