Made With Love and Cinnamon

17 Nov

My favourite part of the weekend is to have a pancake breakfast with the one I love.  We have developed our little routine where I mix the batter and he cooks the pancakes.  I had my with blackberries and extra almonds and Oscar had his with raspberries. Everybody who had  tried these pancakes wouldn’t believe that they are a diet food (I have been following a Flat Belly Diet for the last 3 years).  One of my friends commented that they tastes like something served in a very upscale spa. Enjoy!

Banana Pancakes with Almonds and Honey

Adapted from the Flat Belly Diet cookbook


  1. ½ c whole wheat flour
  2. ½ c white flour
  3. 2 tbsp corn meal
  4. 1/3 c sliced almonds
  5. ½ tsp cinnamon
  6. 1 tsp baking power
  7. ½ tsp baking soda
  8. 1 c low-fat buttermilk
  9. ¼ c water
  10. 1 tbsp canola oil
  11. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  12. 1 banana cut into thin slices
  13. ½ c fresh berries

  Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.  Combine the buttermilk, water, oil, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.  Whisk it into the pancake mix and stir until smooth.  Fold in the banana. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat.  Add the batter in ¼ cupfuls and cook in batches for about 2 minutes per side.  Serve with berries and honey.
