Hi Everyone! Let’s talk pancakes.
I can’t even tell you the last time I had a pancake!
As someone who tries to eat as healthy as possible, all of the sugary, carb-filled, no-protein / fiber foods were the first to be cut back. But recently, my cousin has been doing quite a bit of research on healthier versions of the recipes we all know and love, and sent over a new recipe for pancakes. See the recipe below!
3/4 cup dry oats (blended into fine powder)
1/3 cup skim milk
2 egg whites (or 1 whole egg)
2 teaspoons sugar (or 1 teaspoon honey)
1 touch of baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon smooth peanut butter
Combine all ingredients in one bowl and stir until smooth.
Heat pan on stove top with a teaspoon of olive oil.
Cook on low to medium heat about five minutes on each side.
I love how this recipe was so easy! Processing the dry oats into a fine power took a second with my bullet, and combining the few ingredients look less than five minutes. The pancake was delicious! It was definitely denser than most original pancake recipes made with white flour, but it was filling and packed with fiber and protein!
The recipe made one large pancake for one. With how filling it was, I definitely could have split it into two servings instead of one. Depending on how many people you have, just multiply the recipe as needed!
If you’re looking to try out a quick and easy, healthy recipe for Christmas morning, this is the one for you!
