We had a full day today. This day included lots of family time, which always makes me smile. Oh and a good bit of sun. My lovely white legs are appreciating that!
So what type of breakfast can one possibly come up with for such a glorious day? A breakfast that includes oat bran. A breakfast that includes bananas. Maybe a breakfast that includes strawberries. Oh and let’s not forget that it is Saturday, which probably means it includes the word pancake. Why yes, this breakfast would have all of the above included!
Now these aren’t just your ordinary pancakes. Nope, they are made with oat bran as opposed to flour. But they also have the strawberries and bananas cooked in them as opposed to just added as a topping. Now as much as I would love to take credit for this, I can’t. The wonderful Lauren over at Lauren Loves Good Food made pancakes several days ago that had bananas cooked in them. I just added the strawberries into the mix 🙂
- 1/4c oat bran
- 2T flax
- 1T wheat germ
- 1t chia seeds
- 1t baking powder
- dash salt of cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/4c + 2T buttermilk
- vanilla stevia
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- few strawberries, sliced
- Preheat griddle or pan
- Combine the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl
- Mix the wet ingredients in a measuring cup, make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in. Stir until all ingredients are mixed.
- Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes before cooking. When you pour the batter on the griddle you will add your banana strawberry slices. Cook until nice and golden. Flip and cook on opposite side.
- Serve with maple and a smile!
Your family will loves these. I mean who doesn’t love the sweetness of grilled fruit!
So what did I do with the rest of my Saturday?
We spent the day on the ball field! Today was the start of the opening tournament for little league. This is Kohl’s first year to play. It almost makes me want to cry to think of my baby being old enough to play ball now 😦
But isn’t he so adorable!
Noah is in his second year of coach’s pitch.
I love spending time at the ball park with my boys 🙂
