Start your morning off right with these protein- and fiber-packed pancakes free of refined sugar and refined grains.
Ground oats and almond flour are what hold up these gluten-free pancakes, which have no refined grains, no refined sugar, and a healthy amount of protein and fiber. Packing a serious nutritional punch, these pancakes are a truly satisfying way to get your morning off to the right start.
The best part about this pancake recipe is how simple it is to make. If you have a blender, you can simply throw all the ingredients right in. No worries if not, however, as these pancakes can easily be mixed by hand with a whisk or fork.
For cooking, you’ll want a fat that can take high heat, such as ghee or coconut oil, but a neutral olive oil works, too. And if you can’t find oat flour, grinding up quick-cooking oats in the food processor will do the trick.
