What you need
How to prepare
In large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In separate bowl, whisk together BOOST® High Protein Chocolate, mashed banana, sugar, 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil; add to dry ingredients and mix until lumpy. Gently fold in chopped almonds.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat; lightly brush with some of the remaining oil. Scoop scant 1/4 cup (60mL) batter into pan; spread lightly to form pancake. Repeat. Cook until bubbles appear on top, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until bottom is golden brown, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing lightly with more oil. Transfer to rimmed baking sheet; cover and keep warm in 250°F (120°C) oven.
Serve pancakes warm, spread with almond butter, fresh sliced bananas and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Lower Sugar Option
For a lower sugar option, substitute with Boost Diabetic Chocolate (0.5g sugar vs 14g sugar in Boost High Protein)
To toast almonds, place on a cookie sheet in a 350°F (180°C) oven and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool before chopping.
