Oatmeal and Almond Pancakes

Oatmeal and Almond Pancakes

I love Sundays for a plethora of reasons, but the main reason is getting in the kitchen and cooking up a breakfast storm.  I wanted to experiment with pancakes this morning and make a healthier version of the one breakfast staple we all love.  These pancakes are packed with fiber and so much flavor – you and your family will love them!

Today, I plan on being lazy, watching football, and just cooking whatever I have in my pantry and fridge.  For the first important meal of the day, I decided to create a new pancake recipe.

For this recipe you will need:

1 cup steel oats
2 organic eggs
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1 Tbsp almond butter
1/4 c. vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
Pinch salt

In a standing mixer with a paddle attachment or a bowl with a handheld mixer, mix the oats, eggs, light brown sugar, and almond butter on low speed until well combined.  Then, add the vanilla extract and ground cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt.  On low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until incorporated.  Over medium-low heat, ladle the pancake batter onto a griddle or large pan.  Wait for bubbles to form around the edges and center of the pancakes before flipping once.  I would say about 2 minutes per side.

Top with maple syrup and fresh fruit for the perfect balance of flavors and nutrition.  Happy Sunday!
