Every Saturday morning, I love to cook a big breakfast. This past Saturday, I decided to cook some homemade organic pancakes. I am an old school cook, which means I cook without an actual recipe. However, for those of you that need a receipe I have you covered at the end of the post.
Here is a list of all the items I used to make the pancakes:
- Soy or Hemphmilk
- Nutmeg spice seasoning (You can use regular Nutmeg)
- Organic Sugar (Glass Container)
- Trail mix – this has cranberries, cashews, sunflower seeds and almonds
- Agave Nectar (Instead of syrup)
- Arrowshead Organic Flour – You can substitute this for any organic wheat flour mix
FYI- The spices were bought in the bulk section at Wholefoods but I reused old containers. Wholefoods had a great “spice” seasoning, which is a blend of popular fall seasonings such as pumpkin and chi.
Organic Cinnamon Spice Pancakes
This is about 1/2 cup of pancake mix with 1Tbs each of seasoning. You can add 2-3 Tbs of sugar for a sweet pancake. I prefer my pancakes not to be very sweet so I only used 1Tbs.
I mixed milk and trail mix and mixed together. The more milk you use the thinner the pancakes are, the less milk you use the thicker the pancake will be. Health tip: Add 1-2 Tbs of flax seed to the pancake mix for added protein and omega-3 nutrients!
I added some organic extra virgin olive oil and cooked the pancakes over medium heat.
Flipping time! Sorry this photo is a little bit out of focus. Cooking and taking photos was a bit challenging.
This is the end result! Organic homemade pancakes!!! In the small cup is the Agave nectar, which I dip my pancakes into. I added some mix fruit for added color and a glass of organic orange juice. I threw in a few frozen strawberries for added color and flavor to the OJ.
I only ate 2 pancakes because they were full of fiber!I threw the rest into a ziplock bag and placed them the freezer. Now I can have pancakes throughout the week. Sweet!
For those of you who need an actual recipe to follow, try this one!
Whole Wheat-Cinnamon Pancakes (100 calories!)
- Whole Wheat Flour, 1.25 cup
- Baking Soda, 1 tsp
- Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, 2 tbsp (You can use organic sugar instead. This will add to your overall calorie count.)
- Skim Milk, 1 cup
- Eggbeaters, .5 cup
- Vanilla extract, 1 tbsp
- Cinnamon, 2 tbsp
Mix flour, baking soda, and splenda in bowl. Mix milk, eggs, and vanilla in another bowl. Beat into dry mix roughly, so as to add more air to mix. Stir in cinnamon last. Serving size is 1/3 cup mix. Use PAM on skillet when cooking and sweeten with sugar free syrup and/or fruit!
Serving size is one pancake. If you use less than 1/3 of a cup batter (like 1/4, or 1/6) you can have two for 100 calories! Smaller, but more!
