Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

This is Eastons’ Recipe

So I received this recipe from my eight year old grandson Easton. Easton loves trying all kinds of foods. He has been a great support in testing and giving his honest opinion on almost every recipe that I have on this site. So hopefully I will be able to share more of his creations.

This one is very good.

  • 1 banana peeled and cut up into blender
  • 4-5 pieces of ice
  • 1&1/2 spoon full peanut butter (natural no sugar added)(I use approx. 1/8 cup
  • cinnamon(as much as you want)Easton says “you can’t have to much cinnamon”
  • almond milk(or milk of choice) approx. 3/4 cup

Blend it all together and enjoy.

Pancakes (no syrup needed)

these were made with flax meal in place of flour
  • 1/2 cup flour (your favorite kind; can make gluten free using flax meal)
  • 1/2 oat bran
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp.salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce (or just finely grated apple)
  • 2 T melted butter
  • 1 egg

Mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir.

Peel and core 1 apple, slice into thin slices (approx. 1/4 inch).

Heat pan with a bit of oil. Using a scoop, scoop batter into heated pan. Do not over crowd your pan. Place an apple slice on each and push down a bit. Sprinkle with more cinnamon. Cook until brown and flip. Cook until cooked through. Pancakes will be done when they spring back when touched.

Just A Few Things To Try…

Caramelized Onions, Garlic, Black Beans, Eggs, Spices.

You Just Made Breakfast

Slice up a Spanish onion or any other kind that you prefer. Heat your pan with some oil. I use olive, canola or avocado, and saute till the sugars have released and your onions are soft and brown. Now you can add them to anything you want to sweeten it up. They are great in a homemade tomato sauce and if you like garlic, chop some up and saute with your onions. Another great food to add to the onion mix is a can of black beans. Drain, rinse and add to pan after onions and garlic are soft, add a teaspoon of cumin, mash slightly and enjoy. Take this one step further and add a couple of eggs, scramble and you have a great breakfast. You could also top with sour cream and salsa but make sure to check your salsa label for added sugar. There are lots available without. You just have to look.
