Hello Happy Banana Pancakes

Pancakes.jpg

Prep Time: 5 mins Makes: 2 Serving

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 ½ large or 2 small bananas
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
Dash cinnamon

Toppings – experiment!
Berries & yoghurt, dash of organic maple syrup

My personal favourite: Pan fry dry your fave mix of nuts, seeds & goji berries, add a tsp coconut oil after 1-2 minutes and sprinkle on top with yoghurt

Method
Beat ingredients together and pour runny mixture onto low-medium heated fry pan greased with coconut oil. Make like a pancake, flip when golden brown on one side and small bubbles come to surface. Make sure you cook long enough as otherwise will break on flipping.

Experiment with toppings. Berries and a dash of organic maple syrup is always yummy but experiment with what your personal tastes are!

6 drops of lemon oil or lemon extract (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 2 lemons
1 ¼ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
¼ cup chia seed

Method
1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees (fan forced oven) and line muffin pan with baking cups.
2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda, taking care to break up any large clumps of flour.
3. In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil/ghee/butter, smashed banana, vanilla and lemon oil, juice and zest, then thoroughly combine wet ingredients with the dry. Fold in blueberries and chia seeds.

Hello Happy Bone Broth

Ingredients
Several large Grass-finished Beef Soup Bones (include knuckles), you can also do with chicken carcass
Vegetables, (organic where possible – things like carrot peelings, onion tops, celery leaves etc.
Fresh, filtered water.
4 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
½ cup red wine
2-3 Bay Leafs
Thyme (15 minutes before end)

Method
1. Roast the bones at 220 ° C for about 20 minutes until the bones are well-browned and fragrant. Roasting the bones ensures a good flavor in the resulting beef stock. Failure to do so may lend a sour or off-taste to the end product.
2. Once the bones are browned, pour fat into pot you are going to use.
3. Add the bones to a big pot along with ACV, red wine and any vegetable you might have. Avoid using brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, turnips, brussel sprouts etc.) as these vegetables will lend a bitter flavour to your stock. Instead, garlic, leeks, mushrooms, onions, carrots and celery add great flavour.
4. Add filtered (If possible) water to cover and bring to a boil. Once you’ve brought the water to a boil, add the vinegar and bay leafs.
5. Turn down the heat and continue to simmer for several hours. I usually simmer mine about 24 hours.
6. Throughout the cooking process, skim off any foam and add water as needed.
7. When the stock is finished simmering, filter through a fine mesh seive and bottle in mason jars or tubs and freeze for later use if using as a stock. The stock should set just like gelatin, and the fat should rise to the top.
8. Pick off the fat and reserve it for cooking (I do this in the pot so it’s easy), then scoop out the gelled stock and reheat to serve as soup. Note that it’s wise to serve this stock very hot as it may gel again once it cools.
