Ready To Whip Up Some Quick And Healthy Pancakes For Brekky?
Pancakes can be a great way to start your day provided you take the time to prepare them in a healthy manner that won’t sacrifice nutrition for taste.
While traditional pancakes are loaded with wheat flour and unhealthy fat, this recipe has none of the two.
Instead, you’ll be using oatmeal, which is a slower burning carbohydrate that will help keep your energy up all morning long.
Pair this with the coconut oil that provides a healthy metabolic-revving source of fat and you’re all set.
Feel free to sub out the blueberries for any other berry instead as desired or you could even add in some dark chocolate chips if you want something really sweet.
As this recipe is lower in protein, do keep in mind that you will want to serve it alongside some eggs or a glass of milk (or a protein shake).

Cook second half of batter with oil next. Serve with some sugar free maple syrup as desired.
