Following a yoga practice filled with core poses like Navasana (boat pose), and Purvottanasana, I decided to cook up a superpowered solar-plexus balancing breakfast to give me some fire for the day! Associated with the color yellow, this chakra when balanced helps us understand our emotions, be conscious and aware of our current place in the universe, give us the confidence to make decisions and harness our own personal power and will. Also associated with oats, seeds and flax (perfect!) Manipura (it’s Sankrit name) means ‘lustrous gem’, just like the appropriately colored peaches I used to top these pancakes! Shine from within and nourish yourself with a balancing and delicious breakfast!
1/4 cup spelt flour
1/4 cup oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp. flax
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 very ripe banana (optional)
1/2 cup sliced peaches
fruit jam, honey or maple syrup
Combine all dry ingredients for batter and add 3/4 cups water (or to desired consistency). Mix well and mash in banana (optional) Let sit aside. Heat peach slices over high heat for a couple minutes to caramelize. Pour batter into pan and fry in coconut oil. When cooked top with peanut butter, jam or honey, and caramelized peach slices. Enjoy! I recommend enjoying with green tea. 🙂
Have a beautiful day!
