Oatmeal Flax Pancakes

Though I am a little late for Mardis Gras this year – no reason not to enjoy these every weekend! Made with whole-wheat flour, ground flax, oatmeal and Greek yogurt, these healthy pancakes were delicious and nutritious – and since I made them in the blender super easy!

Ingredients:

½ cup whole-wheat flour
½ cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon white sugar
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup plain Yogurt
1 egg
¼ cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Throw all of the ingredients into a blender (or you could mix in a bowl with a hand mixer). Blend until smooth. If it’s a little too thick pour some extra milk. The first time I did these with regular yogurt and it was fine, but with the Greek yogurt it was too thick so added more milk. Once blended let sit for a few minutes.

Pour pancake batter onto a pre-heated (medium heat) lightly oiled/buttered pan. Once the pancake starts to bubbly a bit flip over. Only takes a couple minutes. Serve with butter and maple syrup – or berries and whipped cream – or both! Enjoy!
