Super-Healthy Banana Hemp Chia Maca Pancakes

While we don’t normally need a reason to eat a plate of pancakes, we’re more than happy to fix these banana flapjacks today in honor of National Banana Bread Day (February 23). The fact that they’re packed with a host of nutritious ingredients—including hemp for omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; chia for antioxidants and omega-3s; and maca, a Peruvian root rich in vitamins (B, C and E) that is purported to boost male fertility (the jury is still out on the claim)—doesn’t hurt either. Enjoy!
