Mommy and me pancakes
By happybabyhappymom on June 24, 2014
The other morning my alarm went off and I hit the snooze button. But I couldn't fall back asleep and I didn't want to get out of bed just yet, so I lay in the dark and perused Pinterest and Facebook. I found a recipe on the Food Matters page for pancakes. It looked quick, easy and healthy, and suddenly I was excited to jump out of bed and get breakfast started.
I made some modifications (the batter seemed a little too runny, so I added extra oats) and made two version, one for my toddler and myself, all in less than 15 minutes!
3/4 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 to 1/2 banana, depending on size
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp agave syrup
Blend all the ingredients together and pour onto a hot pan. This recipe makes about six 4 to 4-1/2 inch pancakes.
For mine, I swapped out the whole milk with almond milk. Food Matters also suggested swapping for coconut milk. And to further cut down on the calories, I used cooking spray to coat the pan.
Additional ideas: I added blueberries to some of the pancakes, on others I added thin slices of apples. Both were big hits with the little one!
