You wouldn't think it, but this combo works! These pancakes were awesome and very easy to prepare. Use your ripe bananas and a little pancake mix and you're almost there. We picked berries from the garden this morning to serve as topping with a little maple syrup. A great Father's Day breakfast!
2 small zucchini or 1 medium-large, grated
1 1/2 banana
1/2 cup pancake mix or enough to make the mixture not runny
1/4 cup milk alternative like almond milk
1/3 tsp salt
1. Place grated zucchini into a bowl, add the eggs and beat with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients until you have a pancake batter consistency.
2. Heat griddle and put on a small about of butter to prevent sticking.
3. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until just done around the edges.
4. Flip and cook on the other side, making sure not to overcook.
5. Serve with heated maple syrup with chopped up fruit.
Since pears are not always ripe when you purchase them, a great way to serve them is by baking them. Pears are a white food that's actually good for you. High in soluble fiber, just like oats, they help control your cholesterol, too.
