Speaking of health, I have not come down with any sickness yet (knock on wood) and it's mid February. This time last year, I was sick with a cold for weeks and even skipped my birthday celebrations. I just wanted to stay in and sleep and do nothing. This year I'm just loving this winter weather. My business is doing well and my spirits are up and I'm healthy and running and lifting weights; it's been lovely. I miss my sun-kissed summer glow but I must say I don't hate this winter at all and I don't mind if it sticks around.
This pancake post really segwayed into skincare-sorry if you're just here for the recipe! I usually use oat flour for almost everything sweet that I make but I ran out of oats. I tend to add a ton of sugar to oatmeal so I was trying to take a break from buying oats. I bought garbanzo bean flour the other day to fix a hummus recipe that I messed up on so I used it for the pancakes. They ended up dense yet fluffy. I would urge you to experiment with different kinds of flours.
1 1/2 cups of garbanzo bean flour
1 mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup of soy milk
2 tbsp of raw cacao nibs or chocolate chips
