This was not just any breakfast, this was a breakfast filled with a special ingredient, natural delights medjool dates. These dates are so fresh and are the perfect way to start the day with a boost of potassium! Now this date wouldn’t be complete without my friend Liz, who created a delicious recipe for savoury and sweet scrambled eggs tossed with medjools. Be sure to pop by her site to see what’s cooking.
To accompany the delicious egg scramble I made a vegan medjool date syrup to top yummy vegan pancakes filled with medjools. The pancakes are super moist and need to cook a little longer on each side, but it is totally worth the wait.
I made my date syrup quite thick because I love the flavour of dates, so it was more like a spread. If you want your syrup to be more liquid just add more water.
The secret to a perfect pancake is a non-stick frying pan, and having the pan heated to a perfect temperature to flip some flapjacks. Once I had placed the batter into the pan I gently put 3 -4 slices of bananas on top. Since the pancakes have to cook longer, the bananas actually caramelized a little to add even more flavour to an already flavourful pancake.
Taking photos for this recipe post was so much fun, especially since I was with Liz, who gives great feedback and positive reinforcement that I am not crazy for moving the spoon 1 mm to the left for the absolutely perfect shot of food. These are a few snaps I took of her in action.
Now what are you waiting for, grab a friend and set a date to cook with delicious medjools!
Thanks so much for stopping by, until next recipe so long!
