This is a fast delicious high protein breakfast packed with antioxidants. It's very adaptable and can be made paleo friendly by omitting the flour. I hope you like it as much as I do! I top mine with organic butter and organic maple syrup or raw organic honey.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1 ripe banana, broken into pieces

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon dark cocoa powder, or more to taste (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, or more as needed

  • ¼ cup blueberries, or more to taste

Directions

  1. Blend chia seeds in a blender until powdery, 3 to 5 seconds. Add banana, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt; blend, occasionally scraping sides down, until batter is smooth.

  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; add coconut oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the hot oil and sprinkle 1/2 of the blueberries onto the batter. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries, using more coconut oil if needed.

Cook's Notes:

This is very adaptable, you can add whatever your tastes are, for example: chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts, etc.

Substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract, if desired.
