Honestly there really isn’t that much to stress about with this move; we are getting packers, the house has been freshly painted, all the maintenance on the property is done, it is a landlord’s market here with hardly anything to rent, himself will be here pretty much until we move and the kids are old enough to help. Yet, me being me I still find something to worry about and stress over!
Last shift (2.5 years ago) my eating wasn’t as good as it was now and I resorted to late nights mixed with V energy drinks and rescue remedy to see me through. This time I am in much better health and with the absence of sugar in my diet there will be no V this time around 🙂 However the stress has made an old problem re-surface; diverticulitis.
I have pretty much sorted this diverticular dis-ease, which I have had for close to a decade, with changing my life style and eating however in times of stress is does appear for short bursts with vengeance! In these times I get tapping, keep up the exercise and Bach Flowers to help the emotional side and I usually revert to a gluten free, diary free, increased liquids along with a nut and seed free way of eating which equates to a fairly dull old meal time.
So imagine my delight when I read a great wee recipe in my running magazine for a yummy wee ‘pancakes’ which fit into the above criteria! I thought I would share it here because they really were very easy, yummy and best of all healthy 🙂
Coconut and Banana Pancakes
Thanks to Runners World Magazine – November 2014
- 2 bananas
- 45g ground almonds
- 15g desiccated coconut
- 1 egg
- Mash bananas (just realised I did both when the recipe says one and to use the other for a topping – still yummy though) in a bowl and stir in the ground almonds and coconut.
- Beat in the egg. (Recipe says to add in milk to make a batter however in using both bananas in the recipe I didn’t do this).
- Heat some oil in a frying pan and place a few teaspoonful amounts into the pan, keeping them separate.
- Cook for 3-4 minutes until golden underneath and then flip over and cook till the other side is golden.
- Serve as they are for a yummy morning tea or top with a drizzle of honey and sliced banana for an easy dessert.
Hope this finds you all happy, healthy and pain-free 🙂
