I was looking for a healthy and satisfying breakfast on this cold Seattle morning, before I walk and get coffee. Hello, what’s better than warm pancakes? Packed with fiber, protein, fruits, vitamins and minerals? These pancakes taste better than “normal” pancakes and they are healthy for you-gluten free, sugar and dairy free. Normal pancakes being those ones you buy out of a bag that have way more ingredients than you can pronounce. Its a very quick recipe and takes about 5-10 minutes to mix together before you start cookin’.
Topped with fresh blueberries, and raspberries, also check out other recipes we have made in the past for more ideas: Banana Walnut Pancakes or Cocoa Raspberry , really whatever you have in the house- throw it on top of the pancake stack and they melt in your mouth.
What you need:
- 1 cup of steel cut oats
- 1/3 of a cup of ground almonds
- 1 cup of water
- ¼ of a cup of ground flaxseed
- ¼ of a cup of chia seeds
- ¼ of a cup of raspberries
- ¼ of a cup of walnuts
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
For the topping:
- a handful of blueberries
- a handful of raspberries
- walnut pieces
- pure maple syrup (if you want, adding pure maple syrup will not make your meal SOS free)
Start by placing the oats into a food processor or blender until they are smooth. Add in the banana, the the remaining ingredients (except the toppings)– blend until a smooth mixture forms. At this point, the mix should be thick, not too runny.
Use a non stick pan and being dropping your pancake mix onto the pan with a spatula until all your mix is gone.
Cover your healthy stacks with raspberries, blueberries, (really any toppings you like) and serve.
