If your family is like mine, your mornings can get hectic - especially on days when people need to get out the door in order to be on time for work, school or church! I have definitely been guilty of feeding my family something low in nutrition for breakfast just because it was quick and easy and we needed to leave about five minutes ago. Sound familiar?
To help combat the quick vs. nutritious battle raged in home nearly every morning, September has been declared Better Breakfast Month. So if you need help with better breakfasts, I'd like to present you with my new kid friendly recipe: The Peanut Butter Banana Protein Pancake Stack.
At the beginning of the week (or over the weekend), whip up a big batch of my super delicious protein pancakes (they happen to be gluten free, too!). Save them in the fridge and grab them to make this kid friendly breakfast packed with plant based protein as well as 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients - and that's just from the peanut butter! All together this recipe has 22 grams of protein and 32% of your recommended daily iron intake. Not a bad way to start your day!
- 2 CGL Protein Pancakes
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 banana
yield: 1 serving
Nutrition information is approximate and may vary based on the freshness and brand of your ingredients. Nutrition information calculated at: Calorie Count.
- If you are using refrigerated or frozen pancakes, warm them up to eating temperature in the microwave or a skillet.
- While pancakes are warming, peel and slice banana.
- Place one pancake on your plate. Top with half of the peanut butter. Lay banana slices over the peanut butter. Add another pancake and top with remaining peanut butter and banana slices.
Serve as-is or drizzle with just a little bit of maple syrup. A little will go a long way - especially since you'll have all the great flavors from the peanut butter and banana.
