I am really trying hard to get myself and my family on cleaner diets. If you’re unsure what clean eating is, it is essentially fresh food, not processed stuff from a box. I don’t get to control their lunches too much but I get to help them choose healthier breakfasts and make healthier dinners.
My boys LOVE pancakes. I don’t make them very often because I got my pancake skills from my Grandma Charlotte. I remember as a kid eating pancakes at her house that were way too cooked (thank goodness for syrup, lol.) I usually make myself banana pancakes that consist of 2 eggs mixed with a banana. While they like those, they seemed to really enjoy these ones better. I think I might try using this recipe to make waffles too.
This recipe is best for probably 1 serving. I tripled the recipe for me and my 2 boys.
1/4 cup Applesauce
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter or Coconut Oil
1. Pre-heat your pan or griddle to medium low heat. Wait to grease with butter or coconut oil until your just about ready to put the batter on.
2. Put oatmeal into a blender or food processor and chop them all up so they are pretty fine. Add cinnamon and set aside.
3. Mash up banana in mixer. Add eggs, applesauce and vanilla, blend well.
4. Add oatmeal and cinnamon to the banana mix and mix up well.
5. Pour a 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and wait till bubbling like regular pancakes to flip.
Tip: My kids prefer syrup on their pancakes but I decided to use a little applesauce on top and it was DELICIOUS! I think I’ll be using that more often instead!
