Ok so these are an absolute staple…NO, more like a REQUIREMENT, in our home! Our girls LOVE THEM! So this makes mama happy knowing that I am creating healthy pancakes for my family to indulge and enjoy Sunday mornings, GUILT FREE... It is SUPER EASY,SUPER DELICIOUS, AND SUPER NUTRITIOUS!!!
<<This Recipe usually serves 3-4 so double up if you need more>>
TO MAKE BATTER, IN YOUR FAVORITE BLENDER (We love our Nutri-Bullet) COMBINE ALL OF THESE INGREDIENTS:
- 1 BANANA
- 2 c OATS
- 1 c EGG WHITES (I sometimes throw in 1 WHOLE EGG too)
- 1-2 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER (ALLERGY? SUB ALMOND OR SUN BUTTER)
- 1.5 c ALMOND MILK
- SPRINKLE CINNAMON
- 1 TBSP GROUND FLAX (OR HEMP) SEED
- 1 DASH VANILLA (OPTIONAL)
<PROCEED ON TO MAKE YOUR PANCAKES AS USUAL>
(Recommended to keep Skillet @ medium heat)…
The first pancake is always our "Tester" and doesn't always cook perfectly like the rest. I realize now it's because the griddle is not hot yet and needs time to warm up, but this has become a tradition to always gobble up the first one just to "make sure" it's good lol. So don't be discouraged if your first pancake sticks to the pan a bit and doesn't come out "perfect"..The rest should cook nicely so long as you keep the heat to a medium and flip your pancakes over once it starts bubbling on top.
TIP: While cooking the other pancakes, I put foil over the stack that are already cooked so they don't get cold, unless of course you have a special oven for that and in that case you are BLESSED BY THE PANCAKE GODS :)
RECOMMENDATION: Find a Maple Syrup that does not have high fructose corn syrup!
>> We love pure Maple Syrup from Vermont which has no artificial ingredients or preservatives and is made from only one ingredient: Maple Sap that comes right from the tree! Made with love from family up North :)
