The 3 ingredient, Almond Butter Pancakes (add your optional toppings, grain free)

In my quest for the better pancake, I ran across thus recipe and I am trying it for myself because of it's simplicity. When I find a recipe such as this, I use it as a baseline for future additions and changes that I like to make for my own preferences.

For me, simplicity is everything. If you can do quick and easy healthy delicious cooking, the habit becomes very easy and preferable to unhealthy alternatives. Nonetheless, I found this recipe very interesting and I have it in development stage to see where I can take it. Basically the recipe has only three ingredients, almond butter, bananas, and eggs.


Remember, the purpose of my "Pancake Project" is to re-create the All American Breakfast, but using healthy quality ingredients. And as I keep learning, those quality ingredients will undoubtedly give you a taste that blow away the taste of those recipes with unhealthy, conventional, poor quality ingredients . Furthermore, I am making a break from the legions of healthy eating gurus whose strategy is to somehow convince or force you to stop eating the foods you love. What fun is that?

Anyway, as with my other pancake articles, I have my opinions, as they relate to syrup and dairy products which I will mention below.


1 pasture raised egg

A heap of Almond Butter

2 Ripe banannas

Optional topping of diced bananna, chia seeds, walnut, shredded coconut, rasberries,  or whatever floats your healthy boat





Mash the Banannas, egg and mix well.

Stir in Almon Butter adding more to get pancake-like texture and preferred consistency (could throw some blueberries in here if desired, no law saying you have to stick to the main 3 ingredients)

Brown each side and serve warm.

With simple creations like this, I always get more "facny-smancy" if preparing for someone else, like garnished with diced bananna and chia, if the person likes that , or some fresh strawberries and blueberries, sliced peaches, pineapple, walnuts, shredded coconut, whatever the person likes,  the options are endless (style points count when tricking people into eating healthy/delicious. The taste alone will get over into our camp).

The Healthy Chef's comments about butter and syrup

Note About Butter

My word is not law, but my opinion is here for people who don't wanna research this stuff. For non-vegan healthy eaters, a little real butter is OK here and there. The closer you can get to grass fed butter, the better. If you're lucky, you can find it at a farmers market. Butter is freezable. Good health requires a little work. Remember, if you are going out of your way to make super healthy pancakes like this, you are probably already are a responsible eater.

Real butter is totally processable by the body, and I don't think, in moderation, it is an issue for someone who eats healthy, and stays active. I don't eat butter consistently, so a few dabs every few weeks on some pancakes is no big deal to my body. One the other hand AVOID MARGARINE, AND ALL OTHER ARTIFICIAL SPREADS AT ALL COSTS!!!!! they are not naturally processable by the body and serve no purpose except to be stored as fat by the body, and/or contribute to high triglyceride levels.

A Note about Syrup

The whole premise behind a healthy breakfast is annulled if you use conventional "Aunt Jemima" style syrups. My research unfortunately does not leave a lot of options, I don't even recommend the low glycemic touted Agave Syrup that is currently the big thing. The only one I recommend is real Maple Syrup, It must be unprocessed, and created in the natural "Old School" Type of way. Also there are a few other creative things you can do instead of syrup, as I have found out. for example you can blend pomegranate seeds with a premium organic honey such as Soliga Honey.

Soliga is a very good brand of organic raw honey, an unlike most other raw honeys, it is liquid and pourable. Mix the Soliga with fresh Pomegranate seeds and the pomegranate juice.

The tart of the pomegranate and sweetness of the honey makes for a good balance. If anyone comes up with any innovative variations to pancake toppings, please let me know, I will post to my blog. Also keep in mind once you get into healthy eating, you won't need to eat a stack of pancakes two feet high. Your body will adjust to eating the amount needed as your body sends signals to the brain that it is properly nourished, and the brain will tell the body it is full, and therefore stop eating. With a proper healthy breakfast from quality ingredients, you will find yourself eventually only wanting a few silver dollar pancakes, don't force it either way, your body will eventually start to speak you, at least that has been my experience.
