Cinnamon Toast Pancakes

May 27, 2012 in Breakfast, Dinner, Food





I had this super yummy and healthy pancakes for breakfast today alone :(
I love this song from Shania Twain – Forever and for always that I’m listening to now and I want to share it with you :)
These pancakes are loaded with heart-healthy almonds and milled flax seed that is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids.
I make them often as they are mainly made out of ingredients that you can keep them for a long time like: flax seeds, poppy seeds or almonds. I usually make a stock of these ingredients as they are healthy, tasty and I use them for many type of cookies.

Ingredients
Serves 4
Vegetable oil spray(I used the oil from the bottle not the spray)

Batter
3 eggs
2 tbs water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Mix in the mixer: 1 cup almonds ,1/2 cup flax seeds and 1/2 poppy seeds
1/4 cup bulk sugar substitute(I used 2tbs honey, you just have to be careful as they can easily burn on the surface , the hard part is to turn them over as they are so soft…but if you add small quantities like 1/2 tbs it’s doable :))
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt

Cinnamon Sprinkle
cinnamon powder
1 tbsp bulk sugar substitute(I used powdered sugar)
Fresh blueberries or strawberries, for garnish(I used 500g of frozen strawberries. I cooked them with 2 tablespoons of sugar(you can use sugar substitute) and 1/3 teaspoon of ginger chopped in small pieces – super yummy)

Directions
Grease a large skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high heat.
Beat the eggs and then add all the other batter ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until well blended.
Pour mini-cakes formed with a spoon of batter onto the hot skillet, and cook on both sides(I turned them on the other side with a spoon).
Combine the cinnamon and sugar substitute and sprinkle over the hot cakes before serving. Optionally garnish with cooked or fresh berries.
