Pancakes are usually derided as being an unhealthy breakfast option for two reasons:
However, as an avid pancake lover, I was not going to be giving up pancakes anytime soon, so I came up with the following recipe which has no refined flour or sugar. By using Greek yogurt and oatmeal, these even have a respectable amount of protein. Enjoy!
For those baking enthusiasts among you, the process for making this is called the muffin method. If you know what that means, feel free to skip ahead and enjoy your pancakes now. For everyone else, here is what the muffin method entails. Pay attention, it is very difficult.
Don’t overmix the batter, this will create more gluten in the dough which makes it more chewy like bread, and less soft like pancakes. If you’re into that, go for it. Sometimes I want bread-cakes, too.
Next, heat up a nonstick skillet or griddle, spread with just a touch of butter (grass fed would be best!) and scoop out your desired amount of batter. Cook until bubbles form on top of the batter, flip, and cook until browned on the second side. The time will depend on the heat of your griddle/pan, but mine normally take 2-3 minutes per side.
