I made this for my husband’s birthday! I have to admit that it doesn’t taste like buttermilk IHOP pancakes but they are light, delicious and good for you! No guilt!
What do you need?
1/2 cup wholewheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup skim milk or almond milk
Unsweetened fat free greek yoghurt
Mix the eggs, milk, banana, flour, baking soda and salt in a blender
Under medium to low heat, spray pan and place 3 tablespoons of the mix in pan. Let the bottom set and then turn the pancake and cook the other side.
Spray the pan in between each pancake.
Do not try to do this on hight heat! Trust me! I had to throw about 4 away! 😦
Place fruits and yoghurt in between layers and drizzle with honey! I served this with a fruit platter with pretty much everything I had at home! Mix together honey and yoghurt for a delicious dip!
| Why almond milk? |
It is one of the most nutritionally valuable milk substitutes available today which is free of lactose, gluten, casein, cholesterol and saturated fats!
It contains a large number of minerals and vitamins like calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin E, potassium amongst others. Almond milk is also low in calories, at only 40 calories and 3 gm of fat/ 8 oz serving whereas cow’s milk stands at 146 calories, 8 gm of fat, 5 gm of saturated fats and 24 mg of cholesterol/ 8 oz serving! Now you do the math 😀
| Ingredients needed to make this goodness |
1 cup raw almonds | 2 cups water | 2 tsp Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract | 1 tbsp raw organic honey | few drops of liquid stevia to your liking |
Cover the almonds with water and let it soak overnight | Drain and rinse the almonds before use
Add almonds and 2 cups of water and blend for 1 minute
Add vanilla, honey and stevia (as pictured) and blend for a further 30-40 seconds
You can drink the milk as is if you like a course texture but for a smoother finish, line a bowl with cheesecloth and strain the milk through.
The milk stays for around 4 days refrigerated and do not throw the almond remains in the cheese cloth!
Take the remains and on lowest oven setting dry it out and run it through a food processor for fresh almond flour | Recipe for chocolate chip cookies with this almond flour to follow!
