Why is breakfast always so good? What is it about the first meal of the day that always feels so satisfying?
I love waking up in the morning, knowing that I have an awesome meal to look forward to.
Today, I wanted something fun. I also wanted something to help clear out the fridge a little.
Almond Butter and Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
- 2 oatmeal sourdough pancakes (leftover from this weekend)
- 1 Tbsp TJ’s almond butter
- 1/2 banana, sliced
Love, love, love this combo!!!
I’m becoming a big fan of nut butter on pancakes instead of maple syrup. I still love maple syrup! But nut butter gets so warm and melty inbetween the hot pancakes and covers every single bite. :)
The pancakes were a little sweet and a little sour, the banana was sugary sweet and that almond butter was perfectly crunchy + salty. Everything just worked so well – I’m sad these were the last 2 pancakes in this batch.
I’ve got another busy day ahead. My direct supervisor is on vacation this week, so I’ve had some extra work to do while she’s gone. I’m ready for her to be back and I hope today is a bit calmer than yesterday!
What’s your favorite way to use nut butter? Sandwich? Oatmeal? In cookies?
