Eating Healthier in 2018

In an effort to help my family eat more healthy foods in 2018 moving forward, I have been seeking out some great new recipes to try.  This one I modified from one that I came across the other day and it turned out wonderfully if I do say so myself!

I think adding some Greek yogurt to these would be great as well, so I may have to try that soon!  Any fruit you like would go well in these such as blueberries or even cut up strawberries.


Who doesn’t love a good hearty pancake for breakfast on occasion?  I know my family certainly does.  In fact, Joy had two of these healthy pancakes with honey on them today!

I am going to have to make a double batch of these just to freeze soon so we Whole Wheat Oatmeal Banana Pancakesalways have them available.  Much to my delight, these pancakes freeze VERY well.  I popped one in the toaster for Joy this morning and it turned out great.  I actually ate two of them as well.  These are so good!

Update:  I made another batch of this batter yesterday and finished frying up some of these today (2/1/18).  After Joy had eaten one and Owen had eaten one I decided that the only way to keep these in the freezer is going to be to make a quadruple batch after they go to bed!  This is becoming a staple breakfast and snack in our house.  Owen and Joy both love these with peanut butter too!

Cheers to a healthier new year!

Instructions
  1. Whisk all ingredients together.

  2. Refrigerate pancake batter for at least 1/2 hour. This allows the ingredients to soak together and thicken up. I added this step to the receipe by accident, but they are much fluffier and better this way!

  3. Cook in a pan or griddle on medium heat (I actually use a lower heat) with a little oil (grapeseed or coconut) or butter. The secret to perfectly cooked and browned pancakes is to wait until they bubble and the bubbles start to pop. That is how you know it is time to flip the pancake. 🙂
  4. When your pancakes are done, they should be golden brown like in this picture!
  5. Freeze any leftovers (or if you are like me, double the recipe to have some to freeze each time)! I put wax paper squares in between my pancakes so they come apart in a snap. Then pop into a freezer bag and into the freezer. Pop into the toaster or the microwave for a quick breakfast or snack!
  6. Serve with your favorite fruit and syrup (I also melt all fruit jelly or use honey).
