Those of you who know me know that I am a huge breakfast lover. Even before I took up multisports and worked out every morning, I loved nothing more than a massive breakfast to start my day. That being said, now I focus a little more on what I eat for breakfast rather than just sheer quantity. So when I came across this recipe for Banana Blueberry Almond Butter Pancakes from AcupofKellen.com, I knew it was going straight into my breakfast arsenal.
These breakfast pancakes are filled with delicious ingredients that are healthy for any multisport athlete. Eggs, oats, bananas, blueberries and almond butter are all food staples that every athlete uses pretty regularly. Even if you don’t like almonds or almond butter, pretty much any nut butter will work in this recipe.
