I had some really ripe bananas that needed to be used up and believe it or not I didn’t make muffins with them!
I decided to make pancakes. I used an ingredient I just tried for the first time: Almond Milk!
There are lots of different brands and calories. The one I picked was 60 calories per cup. It’s high in calcium, vitamin A, D & E, cholesterol free and dairy free and of course made from almonds. I loved the taste, so I decided to use that instead of milk in my pancakes.
Ingredients – Makes 12 pancakes, each pancake is 85 calories, 1 gram of fat and 1.5 grams of fiber.
1 cup old fashioned Oats (I used Quaker)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
2 small ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 serving dried cranberries (20 grams)
Mix all ingredients together, let batter sit for 5 minutes.
In a skillet or griddle, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to measure out each pancake. I made 12 big pancakes out of this recipe.
The one thing I was going to put in, but forgot was eggs! I was going to put an egg or 2 in it, but they turned out fine without them! 🙂
Now onto week 4 weigh in already!!! January was a great month for me. I faithfully logged every calorie I ate in www.myfitnesspal.com.
