My Favorite Oat Bran Pancakes

If you ask me, these are the best pancakes in the world! I don’t care for the typical pancake, they aren’t very flavorful and leave me hungry. This pancakes have a beautiful texture and are loaded with healthy fiber. They are rustic and hearty yet still light and fluffy. Today, I’m enjoying them on the morning of a snow storm to prepare for snow shoveling!

Serves 4 people, about 8 pancakes total.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oat bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (can sub regular wheat flour or oat flour)
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder (or 3/4 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp white vinegar if using a LEAP diet)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or cow’s milk
  • 1 egg
  • butter or oil for cooking
  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add the milk and egg and mix well.
  2. Let the batter sit for a few minutes while you put a large skillet on medium heat and let it warm up.
  3. Add 1 tsp of butter or oil to the pan, then pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the pan.
  4. Cook for about 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes or so, until done.
  5. Serve with maple syrup, nut butter, or yogurt and fruit.
