Following up on my post about our Two-Ingredient Pancakes, I wanted to share some variations I make to vary things up! Ellington absolutely loves these pancakes and they are great for a quick breakfast or an easy low-mess snack.

 

Avocado Flax

provides extra fat

 

3 pastured eggs

1 ripe banana

1 avocado

1 teaspoon ground flax

 

Mash the banana and avocado and whisk in the eggs and flax. Depending on the size of the banana and avocado, you may need a fourth egg. Cook in ghee for extra fat and nutrients!

 

Spinach

provides extra plant-based iron (baby's iron needs exceed that found in breastmilk at around 6 months old)

 

2 pastured eggs

1 ripe banana

2-3 large handfuls of baby spinach, sautéed (helps make the iron more bioavailable)

 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until well mixed. Depending on the size of the banana, you may need an additional 1/2 to 1 banana so the mixture isn't too runny. Cook in ghee or coconut oil.

 

Beet Chia

for extra fiber and nutrients, like vitamin C

 

2 pastured eggs

1 ripe banana

1 small beet, cooked

1 teaspoon chia seeds

 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until well mixed. Depending on the size of the banana, you may need an additional 1/2 to 1 banana so the mixture isn't too runny. Cook in ghee or coconut oil.

 

Sweet Potato

 

2 pastured eggs

1 ripe banana

1/4 cup sweet potato, mashed

 

Mash banana in a small bowl and add sweet potato. Whisk in eggs. Cook in ghee or coconut oil.
