My breakfast vocabulary has only grown as a vegan. I don't think I've eaten the same thing for breakfast back-to-back this entire year.
I recently came across a recipe for Banana Scramble, was intrigued, and then started seeing banana-based scrambles everywhere. I was expecting a pancake, but when I tried to flip it, I found it had to be folded into itself like an omelet. This odd creation had indeed earned the title of scramble.
The recipe is rather simple and it comes together in a matter of minutes, and it's both filling and versatile. Try adding chia, flaxmeal, chocolate chips, and top however you like. You can even make two "patties" and serve on toast, a bagel, or english muffin.
3 tbsp rolled oats
1-2 tbsp almond milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp coconut
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
Oil and pre-heat your pan. Mash ingredients together with a fork. Cook on high heat for 3 minutes on one side, then fold over like an omelet and cook for another minute. Makes 1 scramble or 2 patties.
Serve with new coffee...Green Street Roasters is a new small batch roasting company that was selling in the Piazza over the weekend. I've tried the Honduras so far and it's quite nice and bright. They're currently selling at Mariposa Co-op in West Philly and should be available online and elsewhere soon.
