Pancakes for Christmas Morning!

Ok, you could really make these pancakes any morning, but I'm definitely making these tomorrow for Christmas! I love love LOVE pancakes, and I've recently started experimenting with spelt flour and love the way these pancakes taste!

Spelt flour is a very nutritious whole grain that is chock-full of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and even iron. It's a great substitute to use when baking and leaves baked goods even more fluffy and soft than white flour. It has a nutty and light texture, and these pancakes where the perfect vehicle to get this healthy whole grain into my belly!

Recipe makes 5 medium-sized pancakes

2/3 cup spelt flour

1 mashed banana

1 tsp coconut oil

1 egg

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 cup water

Dash of cinnamon

1/2 cup blueberries


First, mix all the ingredients minus the blueberries!

Add the blueberries last and fold them in.



Spray a medium sized skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. Flip when it bubbles, then let it cook for a few more minutes! Repeat until you are out of batter...a sad moment for us all...

I topped our pancakes with PB and then added some sliced strawberries on the side! SO delicious! You could also make these a pumpkin version by using 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin instead of the banana. So many ways to make pancakes, I just love them all!
