An alternative title for this post should be, “Are Those Real Pancakes?”
So, this past Sunday morning afternoon I woke up feeling more refreshed and energized than I’ve felt in a while. I was laying in my bed processing the fact that it was 12pm and I’d missed my entire morning, when I decided to kick my day of with a healthy start.
While still in bed I googled “oatmeal+banana pancakes.” Somewhere on the internet I had heard of this healthier alternative to traditional pancakes and I wanted to give it a try. At my house all diets go out the window when it comes to the weekend and we bring it down with some chocolate chip pancakes.
However, I was feeling adventurous.
I decided to go with the first recipe I found. Easy and Healthy Banana Oat Pancakes from Simply Delicious Food.com
Not sure how cool it is to screen shot a recipe on a blog, so be sure to click on the link above to read the actual recipe. I do all of my cooking based off of recipes I’ve screen shot on my phone. With 5% phone battery left.
As soon as my mom saw my pancakes she asked me if they were real pancakes. Silly Mama. I gave her two to try and she loved them! I am always skeptical of recipes that are a “healthy” version of an already delicious food item.
I had grand plans to make a huge batch of these pancakes for a healthy breakfast for the work week. However, these pancakes did not even last 5 minutes. And I was too stuffedfullandhappy to make some more. Next week.
And just to make these pancakes EXTRA healthy, I threw in some chia seeds.
Also, half way through cooking these pancakes my dad took over the pancake making operation because I was “burning the pancakes”. Well Dad, I am posting my burnt pancakes on the internet because they tasted awesome. I mean anything with a touch of maple syrup tastes awesome, right?
How do you feel about this pancakes?
