"You Shouldn't Feel Guilty Eating These After a Work Out" Vegan Pancakes
So, Sundays mean one of two things: brunch or super intense work outs.
Usually I roll out of bed, exhausted from the week, and I decide to take the day off.
Or I wake up ready to take on the tread mill. This week, both of those things happened...kind of.
I promised my husband vegan pancakes since we got some pure maple syrup in our CSA, but I also killed 650 calories on the treadmill, and after reading recipes for 500 calorie servings, I was torn.
Then it hit me! I can have my (pan)cake and eat it too! So, I came up with this kind of healthy pancake recipe!
1 cup nonmilk of your choice (I used vanilla soy)
1/4 cup oats (ground up into a powder)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 banana (smashed)
1 tbsp agave or maple syrup
1 tbsp ground flax meal
1 tsp of vanilla or more maple syrup. depend how you want your pancakes to taste.
Fruit, carob chips, cacoa powder, nuts, whatever you like. I used strawberries. Dustin used vegan chocolate chips.
Heat a nonstick skillet on medium heat.
Mix oats, flour, and flax.
Add soymilk and mashed banana.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Place 1/8 cup batter into a skillet.
Heat until the edges brown. Flip and cook evenly on both sides.
Eat with someone you love, or at least like enough to share awesome pancakes. No pressure.
