A Paleo take on banana pancakes

This ‘clean’ version of banana pancakes is made using coconut and LSA in place of flour, and is partnered with delicious toppings and a side of nourishing chia pudding.

Enjoy straight from the pan. Delicious!

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:
1 large ripe banana (good source of potassium)
2 whole eggs (nutrient-dense & full of protein)
5 tbsp shredded coconut (good energy source)
4 tbsp LSA (protein, fibre, vitamins, essential fatty acids)
1/4 tsp bicarb soda (alkalising, helps balance pH levels)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp honey (optional)

Method:
Combine ingredients and cook with coconut oil (good source of medium-chain triglycerides)

Top with: goji berries (awesome superfood) chopped banana mixed berries (phytochemicals that prevent cell damage) coconut cream (powerful solvent for breaking up hardening in the body) honey (anti-inflammatory)

Chia pudding

Ingredients:
1/4 cup chia seeds (excellent for digestion, eight times more omega 3s than salmon)
