Coconut Chia Banana Pancakes

CoconutChiaBananaPancakesFinal

About last night….
I prepared these coconut chia banana pancakes…
totally on a whim, made up my own recipe, and it came out amazingly perfect.
My best recipes are the ones unplanned!
I just picture in my mind what I want the final outcome to taste and look like, and just go for it.
Unfortunately this dish was messy, but whatever! It all goes down the same gullet.
This dish is Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, and Vegan.

1/4 cup cassava flour
1 large banana
3 Tbsp chia seeds
4 Tbsp coconut flour

Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread

bananabread1

I asked one of my friends to pick up bananas at the store so we can bake some banana bread.
She came back with about 10 plantains.
I hysterically laughed.
She honestly believed she bought bananas.
We fell to the floor laughing for about 10 minutes.
Once that was done, we questioned what the heck we were going to do with all of these plantains?!
Well, here we go!
This is where Plantain Banana Peanut Butter Bread was born!
So, just to clear the air… I haven’t prepared┬áplantains in about 15 years!
So this was a challenge.
A challenge I was ready to take because I always LOVE a good challenge.
This bread is amazing.

2 ripe plantains, yellow with black spots
2 very ripe bananas
1 cup PB2 powder
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cassava flour
