Enjoy!

This is my go to breakfast recipe. I love Pancakes!  It’s quick and packed with lots of great ingredients. I eat them without syrup or any other toppings because the banana is enough sweetness for me. Feel free to dress yours up with pure maple syrup or raw honey. This recipe is also great for waffles.


About the Ingredients

 

Eggs

Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats could be considered a “power food” because they are an excellent source of protein, soluble and insoluble fiber and select vitamins and minerals. The benefits of steel cut oats exceed the benefits of rolled oats because of the way they are processed. Steel cut oats are dense and chewy as a result of being passed through sharp, steel blades that cut them into thin slices that helps retain more fiber and protein. Steel cut oats, just as any whole oats, make a healthy addition to your regular diet. They contain fiber, protein, and iron.

Hemp seeds

Hemp seeds are rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

About 25% of the calories in hemp seeds come from protein. Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids, making them a complete protein source.

Quinoa

Protein, fiber, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, copper, iron, zinc, potassium vitamins B1, B2 and B6, small amounts of calcium, B3 (niacin) and vitamin E.

It contains large amounts of flavonoids, including quercetin and kaempferol. These are potent plant antioxidants with numerous health benefits.

Quinoa is much higher in fiber than most grains, with one source finding 17-27 grams of fiber per cup.

Quinoa is naturally free of gluten and using it instead of typical gluten-free ingredients can increase the antioxidant and nutrient value of a gluten-free diet.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.

These seeds are high in antioxidants that help to protect the delicate fats in the seeds. They also have various benefits for health.

Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. This gives them the ability to absorb 10-12 times their weight in water. Fiber also has various beneficial effects on health.
