Pancakes with a Twist

If you are anything like me you sometimes love a full hearty breakfast in the morning. I don’t always eat a “real” breakfast but when I do it most certainly will consist of bacon, eggs and pancakes. Whether it is straight out the box or homemade I have consumed enough of it to know it’ll most certainly be part of my diet for a long time. Now that I am trying to eat healthier (some days) I took the liberty to research some of the core ingredients like white flour to see how they can help or hurt me in the long run.

According to Global Healing Center white flour raises your risk for diabetes as well as many other preventable diseases. I have used it for so long without any complications but I figured it was time for me to start finding alternatives so that I won’t consume it as much.

Check out this new recipe for pancakes that will not only serve as a healthier alternative but also taste just as great!

Ingredients

2 cups of oats

1/2 cup of flour (I said use less, I am not ready to go cold turkey lol)

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup sugar (brown sugar)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tbsp baking powder (or  can use 1/2 with 1/2 baking soda)

1 cup almond milk

2 eggs

1/2 cup melted butter

 

Let’s Begin!

Pour oats into blender and blend until it turns into powder. Pour powder into bowl and add flour, baking powder (baking soda) and salt and whisk until ingredients blend.

In a separate bowl mix together butter and sugar until smooth, beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and half of the almond milk. Add wet ingredients to dry (or vice versa I don’t really think it makes too much of a difference). After mixing all the ingredients together slowly add in the rest of the milk while folding batter.

It will have a little bit of lumps in the batter but that is ok. Heat up your skillet or pan with butter or olive oil and use a scoop or pot spoon to pour batter onto pan

Often times we find ourselves hoping to following our minds rather than our hearts and we soon realize it's not the case. we get so caught up in our feelings and allow the stream of tears to sway us into making short term decisions that has long term effects. Sometimes we need to take a step back from ourselves and look at things from the outside. Ask ourselves is it worth it? Will I be ok with my decision tomorrow? Once we decide that it is worth losing we need to breathe in release and let go! No looking back, no regrets, just high hopes for the future, less frowns and more smiles.
