Who doesn’t love pancakes? Flapjacks. Hotcakes. Griddlecakes. Whatever you call ’em, you know you love ’em. What’s not to love? Pancakes are one of my favorites for breakfast, brunch, and even breakfast for dinner! I’m talking about healthy pancakes, the kind you can enjoy any day without feeling like you just devoured a big stack of butter, flower, and sugar…covered in butter and sugar. These pancakes are full of protein, flavor, and healthy carbs and they still feel like a treat!
Ingredients (mix or blend the following – makes one personal pancake, double for a short stack, triple for a tall stack!)
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoons whole-grain flour (oat, almond, quinoa, buckwheat, whole wheat, etc.)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- dash of cinnamon
- Optional: 1/4 blueberries and/or 1 tablespoon cacao or dark chocolate chips
Mix or blend all ingredients and pour batter onto non-stick pan, flip when ready, let pancake cook through to a golden brown color. Serve with whatever you like on your ‘cakes!
