It has been too busy lately. I am behind on everything. I have a memory game tutorial lined up, a quick and easy petticoat skirt tutorial in the making and a bunch of recipes to share. But as none of those are finished (sorry!) I thought I would share my healthy morning pancake recipe.
This is healthy between quotations because pancakes have
never been very unhealthy. It's those cups of maple syrup, butter and what
else you pour over them or serve with them that makes in not so healthy.
But this is definitely a healthier variant containing less gluten, more
fiber and you can even add fruit or vegs if you like. The taste will
still be great! O and no baking soda, or powder but a neat little trick I learned last week!
Healthy American Breakfast Pancakes
In our case it was enough to feed 2 adults and a toddler (makes about 15 American sized pancakes)
1 cup of (spelt) flour (you can use any other gluten flour you like but I recommend a whole wheat type)
1/2 cup rolled oats (nothing added, just the basic rolled oats)
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
pinch of salt
1 cup milk or milk substitute like rice milk
1/2 cup yoghurt
optional: 1 grated piece of fruit, like apple or pear, or a handful of blueberries, or grated vegetables like zucchini
1/2 cup sparkling water
Mix the flours, oats and salt in a large bowl.
Add the milk, stir well.
Next add the yoghurt and eggs. Fully incorporate everything.
Add the fruit or vegs if using, stir in gently.
Heat the pan or whatever you are using to bake the pancakes.
Add rice oil/ coconut oil or butter.
Lastly add the sparkling water to the batter. Stir gently until well mixed.
Spoon three batches of batter into the pan at a time. Bake on medium high heat until golden brown on the bottom and then flip and do the same for the other side.
You can keep the pancakes warm in the oven or on a plate over a pan of boiling water.
However if you aren't making too many as is the case with this recipe, you can easily stack them on a plate and cover them with a lid. They will still be hot when serving.
Serve with bacon, eggs and hashbrowns for that all American Breakfast type plate. Otherwise just eat with maple syrup, honey, cheese, plain or whatever you like really.
