Banana Almond Butter Pancakes (High Protein & Gluten Free)

A quick, easy, and healthy pancake!
Even a child can make these.  My nine-year-old grandson mixed up a large batch for his family last week.  It keeps in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
Yield: 4 pancakes

1 ripe banana
1 egg
1/3 cup almond butter
salt to taste


Blend in a blender or Nutra Bullet.
If the batter is too thin, add 1/4 to 1/3 cup gluten free flour.  Almond flour is my favorite, but any gluten free flour will work fine.

Topping Suggestions:

  1. Butter and maple syrup

2. Strawberries or blueberries mixed with a little NuStevia and orange juice --- Delicious!

3. All-Fruit Jam

Avocado Tomato Salad

In wanting a super quick, easy, and yet nutritious lunch, I combined chopped avocado and tomato, and sprinkled with a mixture of herbs in which I added garlic salt. 

No dressing was necessary!  The garlic and herb mixture gave the
avocado and tomatoes lots of flavor!  My favorite lunch lately!

The next day I had the same salad, but sprinkled a little feta cheese on top.  How simple is that?
