Classic Oatmeal Pancakes

Oh pancakes! An American breakfast staple that a lot of people can’t live without.

To be honest I’ve never been a big fan of pancakes or waffles. I’ve always preferred a savory breakfast over a sweet one (smoothie bowls are an exception), but here and there I feel that I need to switch things up so I don’t get bored… Does this happen to you?

This pancake mix is very easy to make and super versatile. Add banana and walnuts and you'll have banana nut pancakes, cacao powder and chocolate and you'll get chocolate chip pancakes, shredded carrots, beets, spinach, blueberries… The possibilities are infinite!

For now, let’s focus on the basic preparation and I promise that in the near future I’ll be sharing with you my favorite things you can add to this mix to transform these pancakes into a complete different breakfast!


Serves: 2                  Prep Time: 10 min.                  Cooking time: 10 min.                  Total: 20 min.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups oats
  • 1/3cup homemade cashew milk (or whatever dairy free milk you like)
  • 4 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. natural stevia extract or 4 chopped dates

Directions

  • Combine the water with the chia seeds and let them sit for 5 min. This mix will be your egg replacement.
  • In a blender mix the oats to turn them into flour.
  • Add into the blender the rest of the ingredients including the chia and water mix.
  • Put a non-stick pan in the stove over low-medium heat.
  • Add 3-4 big tbsp. of the mix into the pan and spread it until you get a nice round shape.
  • Once you see bubbles on top of the mix turn the pancake around and cook thoroughly.
  • Repeat the same until your mix is gone. Make 6-8 pancakes.
  • Serve your pancakes with your favorite toppings. I love them with almond butter and berries.
