These pancakes are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and omega-3s, while also gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and egg-free. Topped with real organic maple syrup and maybe some fruit, you'll be glad you skipped the pre-made mix and took the time to make this hearty, nutrient-dense version.

High-Vibe Healthy Pancakes Recipe
20-30 minutes, 8 pancakes
1 ripe banana (mash with a fork)
1/2 cup millet flour *see notes
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup almond flour
2 Tbsp flax meal
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1.5 cups of water
Coconut oil or ghee
Pre-heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat on the stovetop for about 10 minutes, meanwhile...
In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana with a fork then add remaining ingredients and mix. The batter will be thick.
Put 1-2 Tbsp of coconut oil or ghee in the pan to melt.
Pour the pancake mix into the pan, making each pancake about 5 inches in diameter, slightly larger than a sand-dollar. Be sure to leave room between the pancakes so they are easy to flip.
Cook pancakes until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side. They will be slightly soft in the middle but will set up as they begin to cool off.
You can buy millet flour or grind whole millet in a coffee/spice grinder. I prefer to grind my own as I like a slightly grittier finish in my pancakes ~ feels more wholesome that way!
If you make them in batches, be sure to add new ghee or coconut oil between batches.
When I make these in batches, I will sometimes make them all and then reheat them in a toaster oven prior to serving.
Sometimes the pan gets too hot and you may need to adjust the heat down.
Top with fried apples, bananas, jam, cinnamon, or a dollop of coconut kefir. Yum!
