Let me introduce you to something that would keep hunger at bay for hours on end. It’s the avocado pancakes.
Have some avocado pancakes and you will be wondering 8 hours later whether you should have your next meal or not.
I dreamt up this recipe with the sole aim of satisfying people who love their breakfast so much and have busy lives at the same time.
These avocado pancakes can keep you going all day long.
But that is just a side benefit. The nutritional value you get from the avocado pancakes makes this avocado pancakes recipe even better.
If you love avocado pears, then you have no reason not to fall in love with this recipe. Seriously.
Avocado is a rich source of monounsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats are healthy fats. You need them for optimum health. Don’t run away from them. Eat them.
Additionally, you get a good dose of fibre from avocados too. And we are going to use some seeds in this recipe to provide us with Omega 3 fatty acids and lignans. Lignans fight oxidative stress helping you get rid of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from your body. Your body is going to love these pancakes.

Add any topping of your choice provided it isn’t more honey, high fructose corn syrup, maple syrup. Keep it healthy please. I use low fat natural yogurt. Works a treat for me. You should try it.
