Organic Multigrain Walnut Banana Pancakes

Organic Multigrain Walnut Banana pancakes with Egg White Havarti Mushroom Omelet.


Imagine the sweet aroma of thick maple syrup sweetly sliding down a buttered savory delight.

This delightful dish will have you screaming breakfast is ready!

All you need:
Organic Multigrain Pancake Mix
Unsalted butter
Olive oil
Pinch of salt
1 cup Blackberries
1 banana
Scoop of Walnuts

For the Omelet:
Egg whites
Havarti cheese
Baby Portabella Mushrooms
The trick here is to  thinly slice the bananas and crush the walnuts (covered in a paper towel with a wooden spoon) and add the goodness with a pinch of salt to the batter.  I like my pancakes thick, so I usually don't follow the instructions on the box. 

Cooking instructions
Lightly butter the griddle with a tsp of butter. When that melts add a sprinkle of olive oil but be careful not to overgrease the pan. Scoop your yummy batter while the pan is on a medium high flame, and after about 30 seconds cook for 2-3 minutes at medium heat (or until you start to see bubbles).

Slice some blackberries

In separate pan:
Toss some mushrooms into your egg whites , cook and top with Havarti cheese.
Surprise your boo with this lovely treat as a breakfast in bed option. And as always, 
Under 20 minutes!
