Winter Weekends – January 23, 2016

For those of you in the northeast, you’re probably experiencing the same issue we have this weekend – all events cancelled and feeling a bit snowed in!  We’re meant to be seeing Matilda today, so hopefully that doesn’t get cancelled.  The one benefit of our morning events being cancelled, though, is more time for yoga and making fun breakfasts.  As a follow up from my last post, we have started our morning yoga routine and it’s been a blast watching my son enjoy it so much!


For our weekend breakfast, we had some FODMAP-friendly Banana Pancakes that we can both enjoy.  I’ve shared the easy recipe below.

FODMAP-friendly Banana Pancakes


  • 1 1/3 cups gluten free flour (I use the Bob’s 1:1 Baking Flour )
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (substitute regular milk or another non-dairy alternative)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium banana


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium sized bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and oil.  After mashing banana in a third bowl, combine banana with the wet ingredients until mixed well.

Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until smooth (all lumps should be removed).

Heat a frying pan or griddle and add butter (or non-dairy alternative).  Ladle approximately 1/3 cup of batter into the pan or griddle and cook each side until golden brown and cooked through the center.  Remove from heat and serve with sliced banana and powdered sugar.  Drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup if desired.

Enjoy on this snowy weekend! 🙂
