Pancakes are a breakfast staple. Nothing reminds me of my childhood more than a huge stack of pancakes with whipped cream and loads of maple syrup. Unfortunately, my metabolism isn't that of a 10-year-old anymore and a stack of sugary, buttery pancakes every morning will pack on the pounds faster than you can say “Bisquick.” The good news is that there is a ton of ways to make healthier versions of pancakes! In fact, these clean pancakes are so delish, I actually like them better than the real thing. Try making these apple cinnamon pancakes for all of the flavor and none of the guilt.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup oats
  • 1/2 Cup egg whites
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 of a large apple, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 stevia packet
  • 1 Dash of sea salt

Directions

Blend all ingredients until they become a creamy batter.

Spray a pan with coconut oil (or other oil) spray and get the pan hot like a griddle.

Pour half of the batter onto the pan.

When the pancake is cooked half way through, flip it to the other side.

Enjoy!

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
