Pancakes- From Fattening to Slimming!
If you’re anything like me, or my family, you could eat pancakes daily. We do! I have a whole wheat recipe that I like, but this recipe tastes SO much better, and are even lower in calories.
I just pulse it. I’ve found that method to be the best with oats. It gets them blended up evenly.
Then add 1 cup mashed sweet potato, 1 cup of wheat flour, 2 cups of milk, 1 Tbsp baking powder, 1 teas salt, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teas. cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.
Once it’s all blended I spray a little pam (or butter, depending on my mood) on the griddle and start pouring. I keep my griddle at 350 degrees F. I have 4 hungry kids, and I think a griddle is the only way to go! I love this one, it’s huge.
Once the bubbles on top of the pancakes have popped, then flip them. These pancakes are a little softer than regular pancakes. They’re super moist, and the inside is really soft. So even though they might not look completely done on the inside, they are. I top our pancakes with either yogurt, real maple syrup, or sugar free syrup, or when I’m pregnant… butter, powdered sugar, AND a little syrup. (then I wonder why I have so much weight to lose when the baby is here) I didn’t put anything on these the last time I made them. They were so sweet and so flavorful, that I just ate them plain, and my kids did too!
1/2 Cup Oats (then blended into flour)

1/2 teas cinnamon

Blend up oats, then add everything else. Blend. Cook on griddle or skillet at 350 degrees F. Enjoy!
