Pancakes. The quintessential breakfast. Is there any food more comforting in the early hours of a Sunday morning? Warm, savory, and fluffy, paired with maple syrup and maybe a pat of butter or dollop of whipped cream. Sausage or bacon for a bit of protein. I can’t think of a more enticing start to the day. These Banana Spice Pancakes use my go-to pancake batter of bananas and plantains, but introduce some warming winter spices into the mix. The flavor pairs well with caramel and/or coffee, if either are an option for you!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
