I had a friend sleep over on Friday night and we woke on Saturday craving something delicious for breakfast, but still healthy! We decided to make a healthy pancake recipe from Pinterest, similar to this recipe I posted a few months ago.
Our recipe took a bit of a "fall-ish" turn once we realized all of the berries at my house had already been eaten and we were left with only apples and bananas to work with. We ended up making banana oat pancakes with an apple-cinnamon topping, and it was delicious. You might've seen the pics on my snapchat story ;)
For the pancakes:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
Just put all ingredients in the blender, grease your griddle/skillet/pan, and pour the pancakes on, one at a time. Cook over medium heat and flip once you see bubbles on one side. We made one giant pancake and 3 medium pancakes, which is an equivalent of roughly 6 small/medium sized pancakes.
For the apples+cinnamon:
cinnamon to taste
1-2 tbsp butter
Cut up your apple into small cube-sized pieces and toss in a pan over medium heat with a tablespoon of butter. Once the apples and butter start to mix and get a little mushy, toss in some cinnamon and brown sugar (more cinnamon, just a little sugar, but it just depends on preference!). We sautéed our apples until the mixture was warm and mushy and flavorful, with a strong cinnamon aroma.
Serve the pancakes with warm sautéed apples on top and you're good to go! The whole recipe is pretty healthy and seriously delicious, and the perfect portion size for two people, too.
Have you tried any healthy breakfast recipes lately? I'm also super into smoothie bowls right now too! I'm excited to head to "Strawberry Fest" this morning with my boyfriend, my friend, and her boyfriend for strawberry pancakes!
