Hot Cakes

Becoming a wife has helped indulge my love of cooking. Having some one to cook for and test new recipes on is so much more fun than cooking for one. Saturday morning I decided to try out a new recipe while the hubby was still hopefully he could awake to yummy hot cakes.These aren't your typical flap jacks, these are special. They are Almond Butter  & Banana pancakes, only 3 ingredients and you got your self a healthy and simple amazing breakfast!.

2 bananas
1 egg
1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter (check out the Bistro Market for fresh pressed almond butter)

Step 1: Mash banana with 1 egg

Step 2: Add 1 heaping tablespoon of Almond Butter to mashed banana egg mixture. I added a little extra to make them thicker. I also added a little cinnamon because I heart it so!

Step 3: Pour batter into already warm skillet or griddle (feel free to add a little cook spray or butter if you dont have nonstick) . It is better to cook these on medium heat for longer than high heat.

Step 4: The consistency is different than regular pancakes so it takes a little longer for the them to be ready to flip. Wait until you see the centers bubble and the edges get brown and then flip.

These bad boys are ready to serve, I personally just ate them plain but they are good with some syrup (we prefer Cary's Sugar Free), a little butter or even honey. They remind me of banana bread, delicious!
