Flourless Pancakes with Bananas, Almond Butter and Dates

Gluten and wheat free, these little cakes are a tasty alternative to regular, grain-based pancakes. The bananas and the dates provide natural sweetness and the eggs and the almond butter help to bind them together.  They are light and fluffy, but provide just enough calories and protein to get you through your busy morning.

Flourless Bananas, Almond butter and Date Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas (peeled)

  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts (if desired)

Directions

Place bananas, dates, almond butter, vanilla and eggs into a food processor and blend until fairly smooth (less than 30 seconds). Heat a grill pan, spray with cooking spray.
