"Start your morning off right with this delicious alternative to distasteful instant pancakes from a box." -C. Martgreen

Beretta

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whole-Wheat Flour
  • ½ cup Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Almond Milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 1 tablespoons Chia Seeds (plus a little extra to sprinkle atop your cooked pancakes)
  • 1 Apple (your favorite apple works best)
  • (Yields: 8 pancakes)

 

Directions

  • Before you begin, wash your hands with warm water and soap.
  • Set a skillet on the stove on low heat. Let this warm up while you mix the pancake batter.
  • Add all the dry ingredients: whole-wheat flour, oats, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl.
  • In another bowl, crack and beat the egg.
  • Add the almond milk and agave nectar to the egg; mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing as you go along.
  • Once the batter is mixed, sprinkle in the chia seeds and fold them into the batter.
  • Wash and thinly slice the apple, set aside.
  • Spray, butter, or lightly oil your skillet and start pouring the batter in the skillet to your desired pancake size.
  • When the edge of the pancakes start bubbling, place two to three apple slices on the pancake and FLIP!
  • Let the flipped side cook about 60 seconds.
  • Once all your pancakes are cooked, serve ‘em up, sprinkle a little extra chia seeds on top and douse in syrup (at your own discretion)! Enjoy!
