A tasty and easy breakfast that harnesses the subtle nutty flavour and the nutritional power of flax seeds. With this wholesome breakfast, before even 9 a.m. you'll be able to boast that you've already fought cancer, heart disease, diabetes and lowered your cholesterol! Now that's a productive day!
1c ground flax meal (see note)
1 ripe banana
1/2tbsp date paste
1tbsp coconut oil
water, as needed
Blend the banana to puree it. Mix in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. The batter will be pretty stiff; I use a spoon to shape it into a pancake and smooth it out. The batter will keep in the fridge for several days.
Serve topped with fruit and a drizzle of agave nectar. I like to mix sliced strawberries in a bowl with a bit of agave nectar and let it sit for about ten minutes, which brings out the natural sweet juices of the fruit. For a super special weekend pancake treat, top with a fudgey raw chocolate sauce (http://kellysfacesmells.blogspot.com/2009/07/tarts-and-raw-choco...)!
