Banana, Cinnamon & Hemp Seed Pancakes
A quick, easy and tasty Functional Health way to start your day!
This is our favorite variation of these delicious gluten free/paleo pancakes but feel free to add any of your favorite regular pancake toppings or flavors we recommend these options;
The use of hemp seeds add a slight nutty flavor and a great natural way to add more protein to your breakfast. Eliminating and substituting for the flour, typically used in pancakes, makes them more nutritious, healthier and you will stay fuller longer!
Add a little more butter and drizzle with 100% Real Maple Syrup or Honey and enjoy!
*We Recommend TRADER JOES for this ingredient for the best product and value*
You read that right- dessert can still be on the menu people. You just have to bake the Functional Healthy way, and practice moderation.
FLOURLESS FH Nutty Butter COOKIES
This is our version of a Peanut Butter Cookie. These cookies are absolutely delicious plus are loaded with protein and you won't miss the flour at all- you won't even know it's missing. Without the flour and the added sugar, they fill you up and leave you filling satisfied with just 1, even though you will want to eat 2 because they are just that good.
Recipe Yields- Approx. 10 cookies at size photographed
This recipe is gluten free as is- but if you live a paleo lifestyle or just are paleo curious, eliminate the butter and replace it with coconut oil (still equally delicious) and eliminate the brown sugar and instead of 1/4 cup of honey- use 1/3 cup of honey.
And for those of you with a real sweet tooth- like myself, feel free to add in some dark chocolate chips or butterscotch chips for something a little more decadent.
Happy Baking Functional Health Style!
Remember, a huge part of a Functional Healthy lifestyle is being happy. If the occasional cookie makes you happy- by all means indulge in happiness.
