Healthy pancakes #5


Okay, so I couldn’t resist this one. A while back I posted a recipe for Almond and Banana Pancakes given to me by a Crossfit Games athlete. The team she was on had these every night before bed in the build up to the Games so I thought they must be good!

Almond pancakes

The ingredients are very basic but I added in some oats to give them a bit more substance. The almond and banana work really well together as I even added in some peanut butter (Don’t judge me) to taste. A good, light snack before bed if you go to the gym early in the morning.
