Nowadays everyone is trying to be healthier.. We all want to live longer and look good naked.. (what?! it’s the truth!)
Wether you have an allergy to flour or just don’t want it in your diet, these “pancakes” are for you! Super easy and quick, they are delicious and will keep you nice a full and energized until lunch the same way a bowl of oatmeal will… without making you feel over stuffed and gross!
You can pair these babies with fresh fruit, a fruit sauce, syrup, whip cream, or just have them plain with some cinnamon sugar! Yummy.. Today I made a quick Orange Marmalade to pour over the top! (recipe at the bottom)
1 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of apple juice
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
pinch of salt
1. Combine oats, baking powder, baking soda and dark brown sugar in a bowl. Mix until blended. Whisk in apple juice, yogurt, vanilla, the egg and salt. Let sit at room temperature for 8 minutes to thicken.
2. Spray your skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Place some of your mixture into the pan and allow it to cook (for about 3 minutes) until golden brown and the top bubbles, just like regular pancakes! I use a 2 oz ladle, but you could eyeball it or use a large spoon.
3. Carefully flip over and allow it to cook another minute or two before removing. Repeat with remaining oat mix.
These delicious flapjacks are just what you need! You can make them ahead of time and freeze, they reheat MUCH better than pancakes! Make them a bit thinner and slice them up with a fruit dip or smear some cookie butter or peanut butter on them for a great post work out snack!
Easy Orange Marmalade Syrup –
1 cup of orange marmalade ( you can find it with the jelly and jams)
1/3 cup of water
1. Place both items in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for 30 seconds. remove and mix. If it is not fully combined, allow another 15 seconds in the microwave. It should be a syrup consistency.
*You can use this method with any jelly, fruit preserve, jam, or marmalade you love!
