GAPS Banana Pancakes with Almond Extract

So, the two ingredient banana pancakes are super for every day eating. But, on those special days when you need something a little more filling or you just want a special treat that is still guilt-free, this recipe is the one for you.

You see, I still crave donuts and other baked goods that I just can't have. My love for food hasn't waned one bit, which is sometimes a problem. Staying on track and focused, especially when I feel better most days, is extra hard. It's funny how just one pain-free moment can make you feel like you have the right to be "normal" again and return to "normal eating." Still dealing with all of these things, but recipes like this really help. They taste like a delicious, non-GAPS baked good. Give them a try!!

Banana Pancakes with Almond Extract
serves two, eight small pancakes total

2 ripe bananas, smashed
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
3 tbs coconut flour
honey for drizzling

- Combine the mashed bananas and whisk in the eggs and extracts. Sprinkle salt, soda, and coconut flour over the mixture, whisk until smooth and allow to sit for five minutes. Pan fry over medium low heat in butter, ghee, or oil. Allow a few bubbles to form before flipping, being cautious as they can burn pretty easily! Drizzle with honey and enjoy!!
