Healthiest "Bowl of Oatmeal" Pancake (Single Serving)
Eating Healthy Spending Less
Ever wish you could turn that bowl of oatmeal into a heart healthy pancake instead? Well, it's time to make the healthiest oatmeal pancake you've ever eaten, and it's absolutely delicious! For a family sized recipe version, check the notes below.
6walnut halves(pecans or cashews can be substituted)
1 Tbsp.flaxseed meal
In a mini food processor (standard food processor or blender works too) add all the ingredients.
Blend until all the oats are broken down. The mixture will look a little chunky and that's totally okay!
Immediately, pour the pancake mixture into a greased saucepan. I like to spray mine with a little avocado oil.
***If you leave the oatmeal mixture on the counter too long it will stiffen up because oats absorb liquid like crazy. If this happens to you, no worries! Just add an additional ¼ cup water to thin out the mixture to resemble the consistency of normal pancake batter.
Cook pancake on both sides for a few minutes, or until both sides are golden in color.
TOPPINGS: I like to top my pancake with dairy-free unsweetened cashew yogurt, and warmed frozen blueberries. Instead of using maple syrup, microwave ¼ cup frozen blueberries. The liquid and warmed blueberries are perfect to top this pancake. Also, drizzle a little honey over the top for some added sweetness.
