A Simply Divine Banana Pecan Pancake Recipe
As highlighted on my Instagram and Facebook post, I started my ‘wholefoods’ journey when I first got diagnosed with H. Pylori, then IBS and then Celiac (even the Doctors are confused) but I am glad it happened (truly, a blessing in disguise) because slowly but surely, I began to discover so many new, easy, yummy recipes and superfoods!
It is funny how confused and lost you first get when you are just told to get on a FODMAP diet. Who is FODMAP was my first thought? What is left to eat when they say gluten free, lactose free and avid high fructose? I used to constantly read a powerpoint document I downloaded from my best friend GOOGLE, highlighting in CAPITAL letters what to AVOID everything and I always felt overwhelmed with all the confusing information out there.
After six months, it has now become a lifestyle for me and a great one at that. Not only do I feel more energized, lighter (by that, I mean no bloating or that annoying little potbelly – I am sure most of the ladies know what I am talking about) but I got to experiment so much in my kitchen and I am loving the simple and easy creations I am coming up with!
Now, let’s get to this yummy recipe which I am dedicating to a good friend of mine, Manaile Dhouibi. Not long ago, you asked me to share how to make them so here goes…
Cooking & Prep Time
- 30 minutes
- 1 cup of Oats
- ½ cup of Pecans
- 1 cup of Rice Milk (Almond or Coconut Milk also works)
- 1 whole ripe Banana
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tablespoon Flaxseeds
- Maple Syrup
- Coconut Oil
- A pinch of Salt (optional)
- Grind oats into a flour in a high speed food processor. Remove and set aside in a bowl.
- Add pecans to the food processor and grind into a flour.
- Add the oat flour back into the food processor and add the remaining ingredients. Blend until combined.
- On medium-heat, heat a pan with a dash of coconut oil.
- Spoon the mix into the heated pan. Make them any size you like your pancakes 🙂
- Cook about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Flip and cook for the same length of time on the opposite side.
- Now use all the toppings you love (ex: strawberries, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, etc).
