strawberry oat pancakes

pancakes

This is a delicious recipe I invented that your kids will love.  I will admit, its not the most fat-loss friendly, but it is a great weekend treat when you just want to enjoy a warm breakfast experience with the family. And although we use butter to cook it, butter is better than PAM and margarine, and it really does contribute to a nice buttery flavor. The oats and fruit definitely add a healthier touch to this recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 part oatflour (1/2c)
  • 1/2 part whole wheat or white flour (1/4c)  (you can also use any whole wheat pancake mix)
  • 5 strawberries
  • 1/2c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg or 1/4c eggwhites
  • 1 tbsp butter (yes, good old butter!!)
  • 1 tbsp lite pancake syrup

In a high speed blender, blend the oatmeal into a fine flour if you do not have access to oat flour. (which you can buy in any health food store)

In a blender, blend the strawberries, applesauce and eggs and optional pancake syrup.

Mix all the dry and wet ingredients together, you can also use an electric mixer (we used a regular fork)

In a frying pan on medium heat, melt the butter.  Drop the batter based on the size of your liking (we think thinner cooks better, so we made smaller pancakes).

Let it cook until you see a few bubbles and flip.  Both sides should be golden brown.  Remove from heat and serve.  ENJOY with a dab of syrup
