Flourless Maple Oat Pancakes
I'm sure you've noticed waffles and pancakes are becoming more popular amongst us foodies and as you scroll through your feed you probably see more and more every day. As I grew up, pancakes and waffles were considered a treat and not healthy. Thankfully, as nutrition and the concept of healthy food have evolved, so has the way we eat and what we eat. Quick easy healthy substitutions are not only just available but becoming widely known and used more than ever.
Using flax seed instead of eggs, using oats instead of flour, coconut oil over vegetable oil and the list goes on. This recipe is flourless because I used oats as a replacement; I used the Vermont Maple Modern Oats. This flavor works perfectly because it has some extra nuts and berries with a hint of maple because who doesn't want more maple in their pancakes?These oats are my go-to breakfast or meal on the go. I have not found many packaged products that do not have lots of chemicals and preservatives in them and also meet the healthy/must TASTE GOOD standards, but these do. They have awesome flavors like goji blueberry, apple walnut, and coconut almond. The Vermont Maple uses real maple syrup and no added flavors. All of their products are certified Gluten Free, nonGMO, Vegan and 100% Whole Grain.
These pancakes can be made into waffles or pancakes and are super gooey on the inside but have a nice seer on the outside. These are super easy to make without a "mix" and taste so homemade and are so easy, you won't want to use a mix again! Took about 15 minutes to make and even DJ loved them (the most particular DOOD when it comes to breakfast food).
