Super Pancakes (for one or more)
"Super" because they're packed with nutritious filling whole grains and are awesome tasting. Have a couple of these and a fruit smoothie and you're set for the day.
For one hungry person (makes 2 hearty pancakes):
2 Tbsp whole spelt flour (or other whole grain flour, including gluten-free flours)
2 Tbsp oats (for gluten-free use gluten-free oats)
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds (if you can find the sprouted kind, even better!)
a pinch of each: salt, baking powder, cinnamon
1/4 c milk (or substitute)
1/8 tsp vanilla (optional)
1 tsp marmalade or maple syrup or sugar (optional)
optional: sliced banana, chopped nuts or seeds like silvered almonds, sesame seeds, pepitas...
Combine wet and dry separately. Mix wet and dry until combined. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes. Oil or butter your frying pan and heat to a medium heat. Pour 1/2 of your batter on and spread over pan. Sprinkle top of pancake with banana, chopped nuts or seeds if you like. Once holes form on top, flip pancake and cook till lightly browned.
Serve warm with maple syrup, fresh fruit, fruit preserves, apple sauce... or whatever you like!
