Oatmeal Pancakes for One

Who doesn’t love fresh, hot pancakes on a weekend morning? The smell of buttery deliciousness fills your nose and the delicate sizzling delights your ears. Everyone is always a little bit happier after a good old pancake breakfast. Despite all their yumminess and all their nostalgia value, there is a downside.

A breakfast of just two pancakes, butter and syrup can add up to about 500 calories and 90 grams of carbs. NINE-ZERO.  Pancakes can be time consuming, recipes often yield a zillion portions and no one needs all those simple carbohydrates in the morning! Oh and not to mention gluten and pancakes being bffls. I sought a solution to all of those problems, because let’s face it… pancakes are rad and we should be able to eat them on all days ending in -y.

SO without further ado, I present you with a single serving, delicious pancake recipe that is chock full of nutrients, healthy fat and fibre. At ~250 calories for the ENTIRE recipe (yes, you may eat the whole thing) these bad boys will fill you up.

Question of the Day:
What are your favorite foods to have in/on pancakes?

Chocolate chip pancakes are a BIG weakness of mine. I could eat a mountain of them, with more chocolate than batter…topped with whipped cream and banana’s… and Nutella… and maybe some shredded coconut. Great, I’ll probably dream of unhealthy pancakes tonight!
