Eggs-ellent! Real (not lab created) Protein Options for your Smoothies!

After Whole30 we try to keep a decent 80/20 balance of eating Whole30/Paleo and not.  One of the things I struggled with during the Whole30 process was waking up and eating.  It just was really hard for me.  I think it might be genentic because

If you’re on the Whole 30 skip these for 30 days or make them for your kids.  They’re easy peasy and oh so versatile.

If you want to get crazy mix a half of an avocado in there.  Green Eggs and Ham day?  Throw a handful of spinach.  Here’s the secret: when you use a blender you can basically put what ever you want in it and cook it on a griddle à la pancakes.  Get crazy.  Get cooking. Have fun!


Three Ingredient Paleo Pancakes

Servings: Makes 4-6 4” pancakes

 

Prep Time: 2 minutes

 

Cook Time: 5 minutes

 

Ready In: 7 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp almond or cashew butter

Recipe:

Use a small blender to mash bananas, eggs, and almond butter. Pour batter onto a pan with coconut oil, ghee, or grass-fed butter (depending on where you are on your Whole 30/ Paleo journey).  Just as you would with regular pancakes. Flip when they begin to brown.

Top with berries (or throw them right in there before the flip) a dusting of powdered sugar or maple syrup.  Again, you know what you are ready for!

What can be said for tostones that they don’t say for themselves? Fried, salty, sweet goodness.  These seriously ring a lot of bells.  Let’s just get right to it, but if you want something a little more try a dollop of Pineapple Guacamole on top.
