Ever get sick of that same old cereal box? I’m a huge cereal addict and even I get tired of the same-old, same-old. So get ready to put a little more excitement in your breakfast with this pancake recipe from The Best of Clean Eating cookbook from Clean Eating Magazine. It packs just 272 calories in a two-pancake serving, along with 6 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. Make Mickey Mouse shapes and your kids will gobble them up. Or better yet, make the kiddos treat you to these in bed for Mother’s Day!
Whole-Wheat Pancake Recipe
1 1/4 c oats (large flakes)
1 1/4 c skim milk
1 large egg
1 c whole-wheat baking flour
1 tsp low-sodium baking powder
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 c blueberries (optional)
1. In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk; let stand 5 minutes.
2. Add egg and oil to oats mixture, then stir to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. For an antioxidant boost, add quarter-cup fresh blueberries to batter before cooking.
3. Spoon out quarter-cup of mixture onto hot skillet. Cook until golden brown. Flip and cook until other side is golden.
Mmmm. Who’s ready for breakfast in bed? —Erin
