Banana Spice Paleo Pancakes

Banana Spice Paleo Pancakes

My usual morning fare, a smoothie, is pretty much as exciting as I am in the morning.  I’ve got my favorite well-researched, nutrient-packed, sometimes-chalky, vegan protein blend that’s oh so excitingly paired with a greens blend.  Yes, every cell in my body loves me in the morning but it’s doing nothing to create a ra ra dance in my imagination.  As my husband is fond of saying, “it is what it is”, and what it is…is healthy yet bland.  So today I needed to shake things up.  It’s a day after my birthday and I want this year to be STELLAR…starting with a top-notch nutritional yet exciting breakfast.   Enter my Banana Spice Paleo Pancakes.  Make sure you add cardamon to complement their lovely taste and scent.  It’s slightly unusual in pancakes but pairs so well with the banana.  Here goes…And in case you need a visual guide here’s a video…
