Banana Sunflower Butter Pancakes

Banana sunflower butter Pancakes 
– adapted from

1  Banana
1/2 cup organic sunflower butter  (you can use other organic nut butters) or ghee
2 Eggs
2 TBSP Honey
1/4 teas Sea Salt
1/4 teas Baking Soda

Coconut oil, bacon grease, or duck fat to fry it in.  Don’t use vegetable oils they are rancid on the system and very hard to digest.

In a medium size mixing bowl, mash banana with hands or a fork.  Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Cook over a medium heat on a lightly oiled griddle. They burn easy so you may need to lower your heat a tad. Makes 10-12 palm sized pancakes.

Playing with regular play dough is too risky for kids with celiac disease, who can’t eat gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains (and also in most forms of play dough).

Try this recipe instead, which is safe for kids because it uses rice flour and cornstarch which don’t contain gluten.

  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • Food coloring, if desired
Mix ingredients. Cook and stir on low heat for 3 minutes or until it forms a ball. Cool completely before storing in a sealable plastic bag.
