Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes – with Ground Flax Seeds & Apple/Pear/Mango & Kale Puree

Fruit & Veggie TwistSounds complicated? It’s not. I’m cheating here by using my daughter Maja’s school snack to add to the healthiness of this pancakes. This little fruit & veggie concoction not only adds vitamins, but moisture as well. And the kids won’t even know it!!

Here is Kaj (my picky 3 year old) happily and blissfully unaware that he is having kale for breakfast. Mommy wins the battle this time!!

 

 

 

 

What you need for the pancakes (Makes about 12):
  • 1 cup of Flour
  • 1 cup of Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup of cooked Oatmeal (1/4 oats & 1/2 cup of water – cooked for 1 minute in microwave)
  • 1 tbsp. of ground Flax Seeds
  • 2 tbsp. of Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. of Salt (less or more according to your preference)
  • some Cinnamon (if you are a fan)
  • 1 tsp (or more) of Vanilla extract
  • 1 Apple Sauce/puree type package (it doesn’t have to be the one I used)
Let’s do this:
  1. Heat frying pan over medium heat with a little butter (or vegetable oi).
  2. Mix dry ingredients (i.e. flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, flax seeds.
  3. Add & mix in milk, vanilla, oatmeal, apple & veggie puree, and the egg. Make sure all ingredients are well combined, but don’t overmix.
  4. Cook pancakes over medium heat (turn down heat if the pancakes get too dark) – flipping pancake after about 1-2 minutes.
Blueberry Syrup  (No sugar added)Frozen Blueberries

Add about  1 cup (or more if you want) of frozen blueberries to small sauce pan. Add a splash of water. Cook/Simmer over medium heat for at least 10 minutes, until the blueberry liquid is syrupy. That’s It!!! Easy!

 

 

Drizzle over pancakes and serve.

So, there you have it – a super healthy and delicious brunch or breakfast. Notice – we didn’t add any sugar to the pancakes or the blueberries : ) . I don’t think these pancakes require Maple Syrup, but that is up to you!

I hope you enjoy, and as always let me know what you think.
