I am about to make fresh cherry mint almond flour pancakes this week. I will be using the same recipe as my posted peach basil pancakes. Do share what you do with the mint because I need to start using up mine too!

soft scrambled eggs with lamb sausage and mint-parsley pesto. yogurt, sliced berries, minced mint. Don't like berries? Hate yogurt? how about sliced bananas with a lime syrup, sprinkled with fresh mint chiffonade. All of these things go great with hot sweet mint tea, garnished with a slice of lime. If you need caffeine in the morning, add green tea leaves to your steeping pot.

I use lots of herbs including mint from my garden in most of my savory egg dishes. I also include them in my ritual green smoothie each morning along with things like hands full of sorrel, baby spinach, young celery or lovage leaves. I save the pestos for the rest of my day.

Make a mint pesto and dab it on fried pesto is refreshing on just about everything!
Or you could spread a little on a piece of toast, top with a little cheese and a slice of tomato and toast in the oven.

Banana-cacao-mint smoothie :) 1 banana, 2 T cacao nibs or powder, 1 cup almond milk or whatever milk you prefer, a few mint leaves and some ice cubes. Maybe some cinnamon.

..Or how about some kind of fruit and mint syrup for pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc. Like a strawberry and mint coulis/syrup.

Mint is great with eggs. Scrambled, or in a breakfast sandwich. Or an omelett/frittata.

Fruit salad--peaches, raspberries, honey, lime juice, and fresh mint.

Make a smoothie with a frozen banana, and lots of frozen berries. If you do dairy add some plain yogurt. If not, add a splash of almond or rice milk and add about 2-3 mint leaves or more to taste. Or do a stuffed, minted French toast.
