Sometimes we’re not the kind of girl who gets a yogurt parfait for brunch or breakfast. We’re the kind of person who wants to go all in, devouring a giant eggs benedict, or in most cases, a stack of pancakes that reach the ceiling. Nutritionally, this may not be the best thing for our stomachs on a week to week basis. Thankfully, we’ve got experts on hand to deliver us the most incredible recipes that take away all of that processed sugar, dairy, and gluten that upset our tummies sometimes. This week, our incredible nutritionists Jacqueline Alwill and Brittany Darling give us a recipe we can agree works for all of us, from the carnivore to the brunch expert: Sweet Chocolate Banana Pancakes!
Jacqueline Alwill is an accredited nutritionist, author and mum. Join Jacqueline and nutritionist/herbalist, Brittany Darling in their upcoming workshop in Sydney on Post Natal Nutrition on Tuesday, September 24th. Find tickets here.
