Vegetarian, High Protein, High Fiber
¾ Cup water
3 Bananas, cut into ½ inch slices (see note*)
½ Teaspoon cinnamon
¼ Cup mini chocolate chips
Avocado oil spray or butter, for cooking
Maple Syrup or Honey, for serving
1. In a small bowl, combine the pancake mix with water. Mix well, until thickened and smooth. Sprinkle the banana slices evenly with cinnamon and press 3-4 mini chocolate
chips into each banana slice.
2. Over medium heat, spray a nonstick skillet with avocado spray or lightly grease with butter. Alternatively, you can use a pancake griddle if available.
3. Use a wooden skewer to dip the banana slices into the pancake batter, then transfer to the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
4. Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
*Note: These pancakes work best if the banana is slightly underripe. The texture will be more firm, and not mushy after being cooked.
TIP OF THE WEEK
Do you struggle with eating enough vegetables? Looking for some sneaky ways to add more veggies to your diet?
Well, we’ve got you covered on how to be a veggie ninja and reach that 5-10 a day goal:
Pass the Pasta: If you love a big bowl of comforting pasta, but don’t like having extra veggies in your sauce, here’s a sneaky way to get in some greens: try a grain-free pasta made with vegetables, like Chickapea or Cybele’s, or even serve rice made with cauliflower, broccoli, or a special vegetable blend, from brands like Right Rice and Full Green!
Sip On It: A good way to get your veggies intake is to sip on them! Broth is a great way to get an abundance of vegetables like carrots, kale, and mushrooms, in a quick & easy way. Just heat and sip -- or add to any stir fry, stew, roast, or pasta dish! And with a wide variety of flavours, like Thai Coconut, Lemongrass Ginger Pho, and Mushroom Chicken, you’ll never get bored!
Chip Away: Yes, we know that potatoes are vegetables, but we’ve got something even better if you’re looking for something to crunch on! Try veggie puffs, veggie straws, veggie crackers, veggie chips, and veggie crispbreads to satisfy the craving for that salty crispness.
Set the Bar: Snack bars can be made with vegetables too, but still taste sweet and delicious! Pack a granola bar or a rice crispy treat in your backpack or work bag for a sneaky way to eat more vegetables, without actually having to eat vegetables.
Take Them to Go: Pre-cut, marinated, and cooked vegetables make it so much easier to eat your veggies! With olives, pickles, asparagus, broccoli, eggplant, and okra vegetable snacks to choose from, you can add veggies to snack time with no problem!
