I’m funny about bananas. I love them just this side of green. I don’t like banana flavored anything – not candy, pudding, pie, or bread. Today I learned that I like banana pancakes. These grain free pancakes from Homemade Mommy use banana for just the right touch of sweetness. If you add in unsweetend coconut and/or hemp hearts, you can enjoy them with a kick!
I am working on healing my body through food, with the help of my friend Maggie at Addicted to Nutrition. She sent me a sample menu this week and it included these pancakes. I admit to some skepticism – bananas and no grains? – but my whole family ended up eating these.
The first time I tried them, I followed the recipe exactly. I really appreciated how the only “new” ingredient we needed was almond butter. We liked them, but found them a bit bland for our taste. I added unsweetened shredded coconut to the top of mine and loved the results, as did baby.
This morning, I decided to try adding in the coconut and a bit of hemp hearts, along with some nutmeg. My nutritionist recommended trying the hemp hearts on top, so I decided to see how they would taste in the mix. The results were more filling and provided a bit of a delightful crunch.

I hope you will join me on my journey to health. It won’t be an easy road, but I’m learning to set aside my preconceived notions about “healthy” food. I’m drinking herbal tea and making bone broth. These recipes are specially geared toward some of my specific health needs and I hope they will help restore my gut and ease some of the stomach problems that have plagued me for years. What’s your reason for choosing a healthier lifestyle?
