I sure am glad that I'm not the only one with a sweet tooth! :)


So, what exactly is a scramlette?  It's something that happens when you attempt to make an omelette, get impatient (What? Impatient? Me?), and turn your omelette to be into a scramble.  Ya, that's pretty much the story of my life.  Anyway, a scramlette is just as tasty even it it doesn't per se look like an omelette.  The best part of a banana scramlette?  It is one of the best breakfasts I have ever had.  Yes, I did say ever :)


Banana Sramlette (serves 1)

Ingredients:
1 banana (I used a green banana because I hate yellow bananas but LOVE them green)
1/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:
Mash that banana!

Stir in the remaining ingredients:

Pour you banana batter into non-stick pan greased with a bit o' coconut oil (or other non-stick agent of choice):
Picture
Let it cook for as long as possible without letting it burn (I would say at least a good five minutes).  Flip it over while trying not to scramble it.
The last part of the direction is always the easiest - chow!
Picture
I topped mine with coconut butter because, um, coconut butter has special powers and makes anything nothing less than amazing.  If you actually get a traditional omelet, I would suggest using your topping as a filling.  
For some omelet variation, you could add some cinnamon or cocoa powder to the batter, but I LOVE it just how it is!  I think I know what I will be having for breakfast tomorrow (and the day after............ ;)


The daily question:  What's you favorite way to enjoy bananas?

I never would have thought of making a grain-free pancake out of just a banana! That is SO amazing!!! I love that idea! You are so smart Alex!!! What would I do without you!?!?

One of my favorite ways to eat bananas includes my Banana Nut Bread

Nicole,

I actually thought of it because one of my favorite restaurants (a Nepal cafe) has these cooked banana balls that are AMAZING! My scramlette ended up tasting very, very similar - success! :)
But I'll have to look at the Edible Perspective's version. After all, anything with banana has to be good ;)
Mmmm...... bananas and peanut butter are a great combo! And thanks for your complement on my pictures! :)

Mmm, what a simple and delicious recipe, and yes, coconut butter is definitely magical. Somedays, I love it more than almond butter, but HECB doesn't really flow. ;)

Favorite way to eat bananas? Too many to choose from. Love them with a schmear of nut butter or baked in a loaf of banana bread. :)

April,

Mmmm.... I'm going to have to try you banana/egg white/peanut butter mixture sometime! After all, anything involving peanut butter and banana has to be good! ;)

I stumbled upon this recipe while reading another blog (Lactose Free Lizzie) and had to check it out. This looks amazing and I'm definitely going to try it! Right now the only bananas I have in the house are frozen for my smoothies. But I'm contemplating putting one in the food processor and seeing if that works just so I can try it tomorrow! LOL. Or maybe I should just be patient and try it your way ;)
