Start your day with this delicious recipe from Chef Kate Horning of Simply Nutritious by Kate.
Recipe yields 5 medium pancakes
- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1.5 Tablespoons agave or sugar (use honey for non-vegan)
- 1 Tablespoon flaxseed
- 2.5 Tablespoons water
- pinch of salt
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons milk (I used almond)
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (or sub other flour)
Directions: | Make flax egg by combining water and flaxseed in a small dish, stirring and letting set for 5 minutes. Mash the banana and baking soda together, then add salt and agave nectar or honey. Add the oil, egg, vanilla, milk and stir. Then add the oats and flour and stir until just combined. Add another splash of milk if the batter appears too thick.
Scoop batter onto a greased skillet over medium heat (not too high or they’ll burn) and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. They will appear a little soft in the middle but that’s kind of what you’re going for as they’ll be a bit more dense and chewy than a traditional pancake. Serve warm with desired toppings.
