Guess what today is? No it’s not my birthday. No it’s not my anniversary. No it’s not one of my kids birthdays or the hubsters. It is Saturday!
Of course you already knew that, so why the excitement. Because in this house Saturday is pancake day 🙂
This mornings creation was inspired by a recipe from the Eat, Drink, and be Vegan recipe book. Yep, I finally purchased it, on my kindle.
Raspberry Cornmeal Pancakes is the title of the recipe in the book. However, I like to call mine:
Power Packed Pancakes
- 2T whole wheat flour
- 2T cornmeal
- 1T oat bran
- 1T flaxseed
- 1T chia seeds
- 1T wheat germ
- 1 egg
- 1/4c almond milk
- 1t vanilla
- zest from 1/2 lemon
- Preheat your griddle to 300. Or just use a pan on medium low.
- Mix dry ingredients together. Make a well and add the wet ingredients. Stir to combine all ingredients.
- Spray griddle with non stick spray
- Cook until nice and brown on each side
- Serve with your choice of toppings
Now I did add in raspberries to my recipe, since I purchased some while grocery shopping last night, but you could easily substitute anything for them. I topped my pancakes with a few more raspberries, walnut pieces, and maple syrup.
No sugar was added to the mixture since I was eating my pancakes with maple. If you want a sweet pancake, or if you are eating them without sweet toppings, feel free to add a tablespoon or two of sugar.
Did you notice that ingredient list. Talk about a nutrient power house! These babies kept me full for several hours 🙂
Earlier today I tried out another of the pure bars. I went with the apple cinnamon one this time. It was a great flavor. You could taste a good balance between the apples and the cinnamon. It was loaded with lots of nut pieces as well. Unfortunately for me this bar wasn’t as soft as some of the previous ones due to so many nuts in it. It was difficult for me to chew, this is due to the braces, but for a nut lover this is perfect. I highly recommend this flavor 🙂
