Still in my slippers and sweat pants on this cold snowy New England Saturday, but one thing’s for sure, I have one happy belly right now! I am a huge pancake lover, and pancakes are great to experiment with, there are so many varieties and possibilities! One surprising fact is that pancakes can actually be made healthy, yes, healthy pancakes, and still be scrumptious :-p
Before I head out for the day, I’m going to share a delicious, MUCH healthier than the average pancake recipe, my Blubber Blasting Cinnamon Pancakes, but first, check out this amazing photo of snowflakes on my deck this morning taken by my favorite photographer (<3)-Brett Reilly
Blubber Blasting Cinnamon Pancakes-serves 4
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 eggs (may also substitute 1/2 cup egg beaters)
- 2 tsp. Stevia
- 1 cup organic skim milk
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Approx. 1 tbsp coconut oil for cooking ( I like Spectrum Organic)
Mix flour, Stevia, baking soda and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Add milk and eggs and mix well.
Bring a large skillet to medium heat, coat the pan in thin layer of coconut oil. When oil sizzles, pour batter onto pan making 3″ diameter cakes. Flip the pancakes as soon as they begin to bubble, serve slightly browned, top with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and light syrup.
