This is one of my breakfast go to’s – it’s fairly simple and has everything you need to start your day off strong. Oh, and it’s undeniably delectable.

Recipe makes two pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 c. Oatmeal (my favourite is Snowqualmie Falls Oatmeal you can purchase here)
  • 1/4 c. Liquid Egg Whites
  • 1/2 of a banana (mashed)
  • 1/2 c. of blueberries
  • Strawberries/raspberries/mango (as desired)
  • Dollop of Fage 0% Greek Yoghurt
  • Honey (drizzle desired amount)
  • 3 whole walnuts (chopped)
  1. In a bowl, combine the oatmeal and egg whites. Add in the mashed banana once the oats are saturated. Set aside to soak for a couple minutes.
  2. Whilst the oats mixture sits, get to heating up the blueberries! The quick and dirty way is just to microwave them (I start with one minute, then mash them a bit with a fork, and finish it off with another 30 seconds). If you’d like to do it the old fashion way, go ahead and heat it in a saucepan on low until they’re nice and juicy!
  3. In a non-stick pan (or I use a cast iron skillet), pour oats mixture into two pancake-like shapes. Once one side is browned, flip it over to brown the other side.
  4. Once the oatcakes are browned, place on a plate, pour heated blueberries over them, top with diced fruit and a dollop of greek yoghurt, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, and drizzle with honey.

* If you’re feeling extra decadent, you can add semi-sweet chocolate chips into the oatmeal mixture and forgo the blueberries (just topping with strawberries, raspberries, greek yoghurt and walnuts).
