Banana Cashew Pancakes

This morning was one of THOSE  mornings.  

Fruit overripe in the fruit bowl. quick breakfast needed for my twin 15 year old athletes, scurrying  about the house trying to gather their sports equipment, school books and lunch.

I wanted to give them a warm breakfast, something is really fast and out the door yummy.

I just received a bag of Enjoy Life’s  new 69% cacao chocolate chips as a sample I’ve been wanting to try it.

After all,  something with just two non GMO certified ingredients makes me a happy person.

I decided to grab this inspiration recipe from my dear friend Mimi, and add just a bit more protein for my athletes. These mixed up with in 2 minutes and I have them on the griddle for less than 5.

Poof, Banana Cashew Pancakes were created.

This is absolutely a school morning breakfast. It’s a treat at the same time,  very subtly sweet from the bananas, protein content is good and I as my daughters say they are yummy.

    This looks great and the Paleo people will love it. Instead of olive oil, I would suggest coconut oil since some olive oils have a bitter taste. I would also add a teaspoon of vanilla and my favorite, pumpkin pie spice, because it contains a wonderful blend of spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, etc.). Also, Trader Joe’s is now selling cashew meal so it’s easy to find for those who live near one. I look forward to making this. I love bananas as a sweetener.
