Fit Pancakes

I’m not a fan of smoothies. Nor porridge. Those textures are just not appealing to me. Pancakes, however… that’s a good way to start the day! These aren’t flour-based either (’cause nothing says breakfast like flour does).

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp Chia seeds
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Banana (the riper, the sweeter)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ or ¼ tsp Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • pinch Salt
  • Blueberries, Strawberries or Raspberries (optional)
  • Liquid sweetener and nuts for topping (optional)

In a food processor or blender, add the oats and chia seeds and mix until they become of a floury consistency. Then add the eggs, banana, vanilla, and powders and mix until combined. Add berries as you cook the pancakes, or as a topping alongside your choice of liquid sweetener and/ or crushed nuts.

You’ve got protein from the eggs, oats and chia seeds, carbs from the oats and banana, antioxidants from cinnamon, and some micros from the fruit. Quite a proper breakfast.

Thank you for visiting FHW!
