This is what everyone thinks of when pancakes are mentioned. Those wonderfully fluffy slightly chewy loaded with butter and syrup miracles.
Well when you are trying to be a clean-eater this is not what you are eating. So I have been reading and reviewing blogs and cookbooks for the past bit and am going to be trying to find the perfect pancake for me. These little go-to snacks are perfect for not only breakfast but that quick afternoon meal that I never know what to do. It has the carbs and protein that you need all in one little bundle. Add in a little all-natural PB, fresh berries, or microwaved banana and I have officially died and gone to heaven.
So this will be the first recipe of pancakes that I attempt. They are simple and easy very light and delicious looking all in their own respect. I adapted these from a blog I have been following and LOVE and this is her basic recipe she uses most days. I hope you enjoy them as much as I hope I do. * they turned out amazing I had to try a couple of course with some berries for my afternoon snack.........just in case they weren't as good and I would have to tweak them before tomorrow.
(adapted from The Fame of Health and Fitness)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
5 egg whites ( let sit until at room temperature to increase their fluffiness)
1/2 TB flax seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of baking powder
* Blend all together ( I use a magic bullet and it works perfect)
* Heat up your griddle/pan and one by one make these beauties
* They are VERY delicate so I let them cook a little extra bit on the first side before attempting to flip over
* Once all are cooked just enjoy......they are that simple people.
***** NOTE: At least for me the mixture at first seemed a little watery I didn't add anything just simply let it sit for a bit and stirred it occasionally. You could also put it into the fridge for a bit and that would also help to thicken it up.
****ALSO: they will not bubble as much as regular pancakes so be aware of that too.
