The Good Life Eatery are convinced that this is a healthy way to start the day. Who are we to argue with that. Could always give the vegan powder a miss. God bless America.

'Growing up in America, I didn’t know of anyone who didn't love a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. There was something so perfect about Silky Jif Peanut Butter and Sugary Smuckers Jam and maybe even a few slices of banana all tucked between two pieces of white toast.  Long gone are those days and so began my quest to bring back classics with a healthy twist. These PBJ Pancakes are not only healthy and super easy to make, but also a balanced breakfast packed full of protein and goodness!'.

Ingredients (Serves 3-4)

3 Ripe bananas

6 Organic Eggs or 125g of Egg Whites

2 tbsp Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter

100g Blueberries

2 tablespoons of a Vegan Protein Powder (I recommend Vanilla Sun Warrior)

1 tsp Vanilla

1tsp Coconut Oil for frying

2 tbsp Crushed Roasted Peanuts

Grade A Maple Syrup- (it’s pricey but worth it) 

Method

  1. Mash the bananas with a fork.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs. Add the Peanut Butter and Vanilla into the eggs and whisk through. Then add in the protein powder if you choose to. 
  3. Add Egg mixture to the bananas and stir in blueberries
  4. Heat coconut oil in frying pan. 
  5. Fry pancakes until each side is golden.
  6. Top with crushed peanuts and a drizzle of maple syrup.
