April 17, 2012 in recipes
This is an easy and healthy pancake recipe that makes deliciously fluffy pancakes! Makes about 6 medium pancakes so you may want to double it.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup soy milk
1 egg/egg replacer (vegan option)
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*If you want the maple syrup taste but don’t want all the sugar, you can add maple extract to the batter! It’s really good!
- In a large bowl combine four, oats, baking powder, and salt. Add soy milk, egg/egg replacer, and remaining ingredients. Mix well.
- Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium 1 minute. Pour batter by 1/4 cup onto skillet. Cook until tops are bubbly and edges look dry. With spatula, turn pancakes and cook until undersides are golden. Transfer pancakes to plate.
- Repeat with remaining batter, using more nonstick cooking spray if necessary.
Chocolate Jam Spread
I have this absolutely delicious and healthy jam type spread that I always use on my pancakes. I was experimenting and came up with it. This is for a single serving.
2 tbsp of jam (I use E.D. Smith’s jam from Costco. It’s so yummy and has no sugar added, with only 25 calories per tbsp.)
1 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp soy milk depending on the consistency you want
Mix ingredients well in a small bowl until bits of cocoa powder no longer appear. Top on pancakes and enjoy. Great with sliced bananas as well!
