Plantain Collagen Protein Pancakes

Print

When someone is on a healing diet, reframing the way we think about breakfast is absolutely necessary. Muffins filled with gluten and obnoxious amounts of sugar as well as that bowl of quaker oats are commonly replaced with leftover meat and veggies from the night before or a big bowl of soup. Why? Because our systems absolutely do better with a balanced morning meal that isn’t going to spike our blood sugar! I do a bit of everything. Some mornings I go for the leftovers or I enjoy some bone broth soup. I will even eat organ meat in the morning, or if I’m on the go, I will often do a green collagen smoothie. But some mornings I crave a pancake breakfast. You know those mornings, you wake up and say “I just want a freakin’ pancake!” BUT I don’t want to feel miserable, the struggle is real! My solution: Plantain Collagen Protein Pancakes.

These pancakes are easy to make with only five ingredients. I’ve also included two cooking methods.

Baking: If I’m batch cooking and want some extra pancakes for the freezer, I will often bake as it takes less time standing at the stove.

Frying: Some mornings (usually on a Sunday, because it’s a classic pancake day amirite?), I want to stand at the stove and fry up some pancakes just like I used to pre-AIP.

Both methods result in a slightly different pancake, but equally tasty. I like enjoying these with a little bit of maple syrup and some smoked wild salmon, for extra protein and omega 3s, and because the combo just tastes ah-mazing! However, they taste wonderful alone as well.

Further Food Commentary:

While plantains look similar to the fruit banana, green plantains are actually a vegetable. Swap out potatoes for green plantains in stews or soups. Furthermore, plantains are a great source of vitamin A and C, which is needed for optimal eye health, normal growth, ward off infections and help body better absorb iron. As a natural sweetener, vanilla contains essential B vitamins, such as thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and pantothenic acid and is known for its anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties.
