Well, not exactly. But a rendition of them, if you will.
A few months ago, I wrote about a tasty little breakfast concoction - Almond Butter and Banana Pancakes (courtesy of Mark's Daily Apple). I haven't been eating much by way of almond butter these days, however, firstly because my stomach doesn't always feel great after eating it but mainly because it is packed with calories (although good they are good calories!). I awoke this morning after a really fun, hard weekend of racing (two open races and a category race - also my first open races AND first double up) craving something other than my normal eggs/spinach/avocado breakfast. And I had bananas on the brain. So here's what I came up with...and it was quite tasty and satisfying!
Green Pancakes & Turkey Bacon
1 small banana
1 oz avocado
handful of spinach
I stuck all of the above ingredients in the blender until smooth. Then, poured onto a medium-heat pan (sprayed with cooking spray) - it made about 8 mini pancakes. Mini GREEN pancakes. Kind of awesome. Some turkey bacon on the side. Only about 300 calories and packed with good fat, protein and carbs. Yum in the tum! My camera is broken, alas, but I will take pics next time around.
