Healthy Pancakes on blue plate

Whoever said pancakes can't be part of a nourishing breakfast clearly hasn't tried this recipe! Say hello to a stack of fluffy delights that seamlessly blend scrumptiousness with healthiness. These pancakes are more than just a breakfast; they're a delicious commitment to your well-being.

Ingredients for Joy:

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of oats (quick oats or rolled oats)
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of comforting cinnamon
  • A pinch of soul-warming salt
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed to perfection
  • 1 cup of milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1-2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness

Steps to Pancake Bliss:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until they dance together harmoniously.
  • In another bowl, bring the ripe banana to a smooth mash. Add in the milk, egg, and a hint of vanilla extract, whisking until they create a symphony of flavors. For those with a sweet tooth, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup adds a touch of delight.
  • Combine the wet ingredients with the dry mix and stir gently until they whisper promises of fluffy pancakes. Avoid overmixing to keep that lightness intact.
  • Let this batter rest for about 5 minutes, allowing the oats to soak up the love and thicken slightly.
  • Warm up a non-stick skillet or griddle over a cozy medium heat. If needed, a light touch of oil or cooking spray ensures the pancakes don't stick.
  • Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Watch as bubbles form on the surface, signaling the perfect time to flip them and let them bask for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  • Repeat this delightful process until your batter is transformed into a stack of golden, pillowy delights.
  • Serve these treasures warm, adorned with fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, or perhaps a dollop of Greek yogurt for an extra protein hug.

These pancakes are more than a morning meal; they're a celebration of wholesomeness. Made with whole wheat flour, oats, and the natural sweetness of honey or maple syrup, each bite is a chorus of fiber and nutrients.
