I got so caught up in the move-in process and getting all my new furniture built ASAP, that I didn’t realize how tired I was.  Until I crashed.  At 7pm.  ON MY DAY OFF!  By the way, that’s usually when I get ready for bed when I have an early shift at the bakery.  I’m clearly digging the grandma lifestyle  😉

Anyways, after a nice long sleep I took a much-needed break.  I cuddled with Cherry and finally got around to some “me time.”

When you’re exhausted, hungry and lazy, nothing seems as simple and comforting as Banana Pancakes.  To me, “me time” means indulging while taking care of yourself and your body.  So, I made Banana Pancakes that are good for you.

These Healthy Banana Buckwheat Pancakes are made with whole grain, naturally gluten-free buckwheat flour, and ripe, sweet bananas.  They’ll comfort you with every bite!

Up the ante and add some vanilla, crumbled walnuts and mini dark chocolate chips!  Or just lay on the pure maple syrup like you want to run Canada dry.  That’s what I do, and it’s delicious.  NO REGRETS.

  5. Hey Jessica, I am just wondering if the chocolate, almond milk and bananas are enough to cover the taste of buckwheat! I love all of the above except for that, but I am allergic to gluten so not much choice. xD Thank you!!
