In this charming YouTube series from Kin Community, Sara Lynn Cauchon (aka The Domestic Geek) scopes the streets for unhealthy meals and gives them a "mobile meal makeover." With her trusty food truck and dedication to healthy yet delicious food, Cauchon strives to improve eating habits one meal at a time. In this installment, she tackles a chocolate croissant and offers a delightful alternative.
Rather than deprive her makeover subject of the sweetness that a chocolate croissant promises, Cauchon suggests an equally decadent alternative. Her gluten-free, protein-packed "power pancakes" are made with bananas and eggs, then garnished with strawberries, almond butter, and a drizzle of honey. Depending on your preferences, you can alter her recipe by adding whatever fruits strike your fancy. It's also worth noting that, rather than serve them as a traditional pancake, Cauchon folds the power pancakes into a taco shape for convenient on-the-go eating. After watching this video, I'd definitely choose this naturally-sweetened treat over a chocolate croissant any day.
Cauchon demonstrates the preparation process clearly in the video, but for those of you who are curious, here is a list of ingredients:
1 mashed ripe banana
1 tsp coconut oil (for frying)
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp honey (to drizzle)
3-4 sliced strawberries
Watch this makeover in the video below, and be sure to share your thoughts on these power pancakes with us in the comments section. Would you make them? How would you make the recipe even better?
