Light Oatmeal Pancakes

These little cakes are a new healthy breakfast staple in my mornings, filled with fiber and complex carbohydrates to help me feel full throughout the morning while also burning fat at the same time instead of storing it with traditional store bought pancakes. A lovely new friend (IG | luxbeautystore) made these for me one morning and got me hooked!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Milk
  • 1 cup Old Fashion Oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg (or mashed banana)
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • dash of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together (best results if made the night before to thicken). Over low heat, pour 1/4 cup batter on pan and flatten into pancake with a spoon. The first pancake is the trickiest – 4 minutes on one side and 2 minutes on second side, then 2 min each side for the rest of the batter. Top with favorite fruit or whatever you desire on your morning pancakes :)

Get creative with your oatmeal! Here I made overnight oats and decorated it in the morning strawberries, blueberries, goji berries, almonds, ground flaxseed, chia seeds and cinnamon.
