Pancakes are an all-time great creation. Everyone likes pancakes.
Kids devour them. Adults gorge on them. Pets lick the plate! Problem nowadays is the box mix version, has made pancakes easy but not nutritious or flavorful.
So we will create a hearty, wholesome, textured “Caveman” pancake that is good to eat any time. Using ingredients you probably have hanging around your pantry… from those days at the grocery store when you SWEAR you’re going to be “healthy from now on!”
You know…..the almond butter you’re switching to instead of peanut butter;
the gluten-free brownie mix that makes it “OK” at midnight,
the lactose-free ice cream that goes with the gluten free brownies…
You can use all that stuff in this recipe called “Caveman Pancakes”.
1 cup of Pancake Mix
1 Cup Oats or any other Cereal you love
2 T. Oil- vegetable, coconut, or Almond, etc.
2 T. Honey
1 Cup Milk – almond, regular, soy, rice, heck even water will do
2 T. Almond Butter or peanut butter (optional)
1/2 C Flaxseed – ground or whole
1/2 C Wheat Germ – the one in your fridge door 😉
1/2 C Pumpkin seeds
1/2 C Sunflower seed
1/2 C Raisins or other dried fruit
1 Apple rough chopped
Pancake syrup or Molasses, or Cane Syrup
Mix everything in a bowl.
Heat oil or butter in a frying pan and when heated and bubbly, pour roughly 3/4 cup of batter into the pan.
When brown and puffy, flip the pancake. Wait until it browns then slide onto a plate.
I ate mine with molasses and maple syrup.
Totally delicious, then I decided to add more fruit! Blueberries, totally “cave age”!
