if you're looking for a special pancake breakfast then look no further! these pancakes are super easy to make, affordable, delicious, oh and actually a healthy choice!
· ½ cup unsweetened coconut almond milk
· 2 eggs
· 1 egg white
· 2 tablespoons REAL maple syrup
· 2 teaspoons baking powder
· ¼ tsp of salt
· ¼ tsp cinnamon (optional)
· 1 tsp vanilla extract
· 1 very ripe banana
· 1 ½ cups McCann’s quick cooking Irish oatmeal
Add all ingredients to blender in listed order, blend until smooth. Heat skillet over medium heat, lightly coat pan with your preferred non-stick option (we like to use butter infused olive oil). Cook for 2-3 minutes flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Top as desired! This makes about 12 pancakes.
Now this is just the basic recipe. You can get really fancy if you desire. One of the popular ways to have these in our house is to dice up some apple, toss it in a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. After pouring the batter into the pan and letting the pancakes cook for a minute or 2, we sprinkle the apple mixture on top, flip and finish cooking. We serve these with warmed spiced maple syrup. Some other topping ideas; Fresh berries, berry puree, banana slices, and if you have the wiggle room in your calorie/diet plan chocolate chips are tasty too.
Note: You can substitute the coconut almond milk for plain almond milk for regular milk, we preferred the flavor of the coconut almond milk, and it kept the calories and fat low. You may also substitute the whole eggs for just egg whites by upping the egg white to a total of 5.
