Vegan, Gut-friendly Banana and Hemp Pancakes

Vegan, Gut-friendly Banana and Hemp Pancakes

If you wake up on weekends craving delicious brunch style foods like we do, then these pancakes will tick all of the boxes!  A perfect food for comfort and nourishment to start your weekend.

You can expect them to come out fluffy, warm and filling! 

This is a healthier take on traditional pancakes without sacrificing any of the flavor. Our recipe doesn't use any added sugar and is packed with fiber-rich bananas and two ultimate superfoods: hemp and flax.

Both hemp and flax seeds are nutrient dense foods. Hemp seeds provide a good source of vitamin E, as well as, minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc. While just one serving of flax seeds can provide a good amount of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids

A quick note on bananas. Bananas are one of the healthiest and delicious gut-friendly foods that you can add to your diet, they are rich in prebiotic fiber that helps feed the good bacteria that's living in your gut.

This recipe makes approximately 8 pancakes which is perfect for two people. Adjust the recipe as needed and enjoy!
