After catching up on some Netflix shows, I happened to realize how often the main character starts off their day with pancakes. Picture it, it’s a beautiful Saturday morning; what better way to kickstart the weekend than with delicious pancakes? These characters definitely have the right idea. To satisfy my craving I designed this oatmeal pancake recipe, loaded with protein and a depth of flavor that you just can’t get from traditional pancakes. They can be left plain or mixed in with either chocolate chips or blueberries! I can honestly tell you it was a great breakfast, as the nutrient-rich ingredients left me feeling energized for the day. Try it out and leave a comment to let me know what you think!
Serves: 18 Pancakes approx.
- 3/4 cup (90 grams) oat flour OR 1 cup of No Sugar But You So Sweet Granola pulsed in a food processor.
- 1 cup (130 grams) all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons (25 grams) sugar
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons (45 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (plus extra for the pan)
- 1 1/4 cups (295 ml) almond milk (or whole milk)
- 1 cup cooked Urban Hippie Granola oatmeal*
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 2 large eggs (or flaxseed egg substitute)
- Whisk the dry ingredients (oat flour, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt) together in a large bowl.
- In a smaller bowl, whisk the butter, milk, cooked oatmeal, honey and eggs together until thoroughly combined.
- Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Using a light hand is important for tender pancakes; the batter should be slightly thick with a holey surface.
- Heat a pan or griddle over medium heat until it’s nice and hot. Lower to medium.
- Rub the pan generously with butter; Place 1/4-cup scoops of batter onto the pan.
- Once bubbles have begun to form on the top side of the pancake, flip the pancake and cook until the bottom is golden-brown, approx 5 minutes total. Continue with the rest of the batter. You may need to add more butter for each batch.
- Serve the pancakes hot, straight from the pan or freeze and reheat in a toaster oven for the rest of the week.
Oatmeal: Bring 1 cup water and a 1/2 cup of Urban Hippie No Sugar But You So Sweet Granola to a boil and simmer on low for 5 minutes until thick. Let cool.
