Dairy Free

Buddy Boy has been really sick (again).  He had another trip to the ER via ambulance less then two weeks ago due to an asthma/panic attack.  I finally said enough and contacted his ear, nose and throat doctor.  We did allergy test and have scheduled a sleep study... but whatever the outcome of those, we are taking his tonsils out!  This will hopefully help with all his issues.

Anywho... his allergy test came back and he is officially allergic to dairy.  Shocker, right?  Well since he has never drank milk before, I didn't think it would be too much of a change for him.  Except the poor kid LOVES cheese, and yogurt, and butter, and ice cream, ect.  So we are slowly trying to substitute and replace what he once loved. 

This morning he asked for his favorite breakfast... Banana cinnamon pancakes:)  Yum!
So this is the recipe I had and altered to work for him.  Hope you all enjoy!

1 1/2 cups flour
3tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups almond milk (unsweetened original)
3 tbsp oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 bananas, sliced 

In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. 
In a larger bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. 
Add the bananas and let sit for 10min. 
Mix wet and dry.
The cook like regular pancakes:)

If you have any yummy dairy free or vegan recipes, I would love for you to share.
