BREAKFAST PANCAKES: Fluffy Little Clouds of Deliciousness

Most people call them pancakes but these aren’t pancakes. They are more than pancakes. Calling them a pancake would be an insult. They deserve a better name than just a pancake. So I have honored them by calling them Fluffy Clouds of Deliciousness. And here’s a little secret: they are healthy and can be made gluten-free!

So I woke up one Saturday morning and had one of those “I want something other than a protein shake or oatmeal for breakfast” mornings and starting looking on Pinterest for a new healthy pancake recipe. I’ve tried quite a few … my poor family … they’ve been troopers. I DO NOT LIKE pancakes made with protein powder plus I haven’t made a final decision on what I think about protein powders (I have a lot of uncertainty about the ingredient list. More research is needed. I will get back to you on that.)

Then I stumbled across this recipe. It is made with oats, almond milk, honey, a banana, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, sea salt and an egg. I mix it in a blender and then cook it in coconut oil. Super simple!

I top mine with some almond butter for added protein, a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut and pure maple syrup. The kids like dark chocolate chips and syrup. The hubby just likes butter and syrup.

I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine!
