Come on who doesn't love Pancakes? We all have a special place in our heart for pancakes, but sadly they aren't always the healthiest option. Normally pancakes are packed with lots of unhealthy & processed ingredients. These pancakes are a total game changer, not only are they delicious but they are healthy too! Now you can always feel guilt-free to eat pancakes whenever your heart desires. Say what? Wait it gets better, they are gluten free, dairy-free, oil free, free of added sugars, packed with protein, & fiber. Be prepared to have your mind and taste buds blown! 

 

What you'll need

Ingredients:

1 1/2   Cups of oatmeal

1         Cup almond milk ( or whatever non dairy milk you prefer such as cashew, soy, coconut milk, etc.)

1          Banana 

Add ins(optional, feel free to add in whatever you want to your pancakes such as blueberries, raspberries, etc. I chose dark chocolate chips.) 

3           Tablespoons of dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet

Toppings ( optional, feel free to add whatever you want)

  • 100% Pure Maple Syrup
  • Sliced Banana 
  • Dark chocolate chips

How to make your pancakes

You’re going to need a blender for this recipe so there is absolutely no mess, stress, or bowls involved. 

  1. Blend 1 1/2 cup oats in the blender until it becomes a thin flour consistency ( the oats will be replacing the flour in this recipe as a healthy gluten free option)
  2. Add your banana and a cup of almond milk (or your other milk of choice) and then BLEND! Now you should have a thick pancake like consistency, once you do you're ready to add in toppings.
  3. Stir in dark chocolate chips or your toppings of choice
  4. Spray a pan with non-stick oil and pour the batter onto the pan
  5. Once the pancakes have started to form bubbles that means they are ready to be flipped.
  6. Now place them on your plate & add on your toppings and you have yourself DELICIOUS & HEALTHY PANCAKES. Enjoy!
