Banana Scramble.

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.

Banana Scramble

1 banana
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.

Banana...scramble? That sounds pretty damn intriguing. It's funny how when you hear something unusual or new to you, the idea just sticks and then you see it everywhere. That happens to me too! Usually with food. :)

Loving it! Looks easy, too-- always a benefit.

If you grease the pan, and allow it to fully cook you don't get the omelette mess :( (the first few I made that's exactly what happened and thought the bloggers who were making these pancake-like scrambles were messed up for saying it worked... but it does) AREN'T THEY FANTASTIC?!?!??! LOOOOOOVE <3 if you make a bunch too and freeze them, you can unthaw them by putting them in the toaster and are absolutely fantastic!!!

Thanks for the tip Samantha! I oiled the pan lightly but I'll use more next time!
