I thought I’d dedicate a post just to my favorite pancakes of all time. Ok, they’re my favorite ‘healthy’ pancakes that I eat on the regular. I didn’t start making these until after I purchased my Vitamix because I think the machine is what does the recipe justice. (How do I know? Because my previous cuisinart blender was a piece of crap and even my parent’s Ninja blender can’t hold a flame to blending the ingredients just right).
What you need:
- 3/4 oats (I use quick oats)
- 3/4 greek yogurt (I use plain 2%)
- 2 egg whites
- Add all ingredients into blender* (i use the dry container for my Vitamix). Blend until smooth.
- Pour silver dollar sized amounts of batter onto hot, sprayed skillet. Flip when you see the edges starting to look ‘dry’.
Yields: 12-16 mini pancakes
*Note: I will add egg whites first, oats then greek yogurt. If oats are placed in first, it makes it difficult to properly blend and you’ll make a couple attempts of scraping down the sized of the container with a spatula. And then when that happens, the batter will splatter around the container when you turn it back on.
Once in a while I will add a 1/4 cup fruit into the blender for a pop of color and/or flavor.
And unless we are somehow out of it (OH THE HORROR) I always top my pancakes with Canadian maple syrup. Noms.
What are you favorite pancakes?
