Starting my mornings off with a delicious breakfast is definitely a MUST for me and it doesn’t get much better than pancakes. Am I right?? Growing up pancakes were always considered such a treat – sweet and fluffy all drizzled with gooey maple syrup, I mean it was like dessert for breakfast! Well pancakes don’t have to be unhealthy and just because these aren’t loaded with sugar doesn’t mean they have to taste bad either! These blueberry banana almond flour pancakes are one of my FAVORITE things to make my husband and I in the mornings and they only require 5 simple ingredients!
The almond flour gives these a bit of a nutty taste and texture (which I really like!) while still giving you a delicious fluffy pancake. The banana adds some natural sweetness (along with the blueberries) and is a great replacement for oil. I also used Silk Vanilla Almond Creamer instead of the almond milk I typically use and not only does this taste great in my coffee, but it made these pancakes even fluffier too! Silk Almond Creamer is a dairy-free, plant-based creamer that comes in a variety of flavors such as caramel, hazelnut, vanilla and, for a limited time only, pumpkin spice! In fact, I recently used their pumpkin spice creamer in these pumpkin bars and just had to try it in these pancakes!
There are so many ways you can get creative using Silk Almond Creamer outside of just putting it in your morning cup of coffee and all of Silk’s creamers are vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free with zero cholesterol or saturated fat. I also love that these creamers now come in bottles rather than cartons making them easy to store and re-use!
