Blue corn and bananas
Updated: Jan 7
Breakfast of champions. Blue corn pancakes with maple syrup, blueberries and bananas.
I used my own homegrown blue corn which I nixtamalized, (following a YouTube video) and then ground myself in a kitchen processor.
Cornmeal is mixed with equal parts chickpea flour to help the pancakes bind and raise the protein level. Liquid can be plant or dairy milk or even just water. A dash of cooking oil. I used olive oil because I don't mind the taste. Baking powder for leavening.
The cast iron skillet is my current favorite cooking utensil but I'm sure any pan would do.
Footnote: I am totally sold on health benefits of (pure, unadulterated and organic of course) maple syrup after reading Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass.
I'm currently listening to Gathering Moss. As always with all Robin Wall Kimmerer's writings, it's about more than just mosses. But it is that too.
