This recipe is a single serve breakfast recipe that makes 4 pancakes. Yes, you can eat all four of them! (I know, the photos only show three - that would be because my mother-in-law and myself devoured one before it made it to the pictures! Ha!)
This recipe is a Trim Healthy Mama "E" Fuel, which means it is full of healthy, energizing carbs. There is an entire apple in this recipe, as well as 3 Tablespoons of oat flour (or ground up oats). These are your carb sources. I like to serve mine with a healthy serving of greek yogurt to give ample protein to my meal. You could also have some collagen coffee or tea to add extra protein.
And now . . . to one of the most exciting things about this recipe . . . no special ingredients! Yay! The only ingredient that may be considered "special" is the sweetener. But I figured most people will already have a sweetener on hand. I used 1 Tablespoon of Gentle Sweet, but you could use ½ Tablespoon of Pyure if that is what you have.
I tried to fry my pancakes in my non-stick skillet, but found that I had to lightly spray my pan so they would not stick. But this is ok, because it does not exceed the 5 grams of fat allowed in an "E" fuel meal. If you have an amazing non-stick pan, feel free to try it without the spray, but I would recommend having a coconut oil spray handy just in case.
You may also notice that I did not peel my apple. Over half of an apple's fiber is in the peeling, and it also contains a good amount of the vitamins and minerals. I chose to leave the peel on (you should wash it first, of course), but you can certainly peel it if you prefer. I do not find that you notice the skin once they are cooked.
So, what do you need for these delicious and healthy breakfast?
