Brain-Friendly Banana Pancakes!
The recipe below, provided by Carolyn, contains brain-friendly ingredients, including almond flour. Almond flour contains a good source of vitamin E, fiber, protein, magnesium, and phosphorous, and it’s also gluten-free! Additionally, rather than using butter, these banana pancakes are cooked in coconut oil. This oil is considered to be one of the best contributors to healthy brain function.
