I have been following Rhoda at Southern Hospitality Blog for a while now. I got the chance to meet her at the Haven Conference last summer and it was a thrill to see her in person. The blog posts I enjoy the most have to do with her sweet mother and daddy and the fabulous southern-style home cooked lunches they have together. Many of her mother’s recipes are featured on Rhoda’s blog. She posted a video recently of her cute daddy giving her followers a tour of his extensive garden — and BTW he’s 90!
One recipe Rhoda has shared is Paleo Banana Pancakes. Something about it always intrigued me because I thought it would be a much healthier alternative to traditional pancakes. Since I am trying to limit my carb intake I thought I would give them a try. And, they were really yummy!
Click on the link above for the full recipe, but they are basically an egg and a mashed ripe banana mixed together and scooped onto a hot skillet (I used non-stick spray, but you could use a little butter) like you would prepare pancakes. They do stick, so just be patient. I served them with sliced strawberries and a drizzle of local honey.
The zero carbs and 6 grams of protein in the egg and the 27 carbs in the banana make this a healthy breakfast that will keep you satisfied through the morning. Bananas are the highest carb fruit, but it also has alot of other benefits like fiber and potassium, and since you are eating it with a protein it helps soften the effect the carbs have on your blood sugar.
Give them a try. I think you will really like them. And, buzz over to Rhoda’s blog for some good Southern hospitality!
