Pancakes can make a great start to the day. But choose a MultiGrain Pancake Mix. It is a healthier choice. Healthier than a mix with white flour. It will have a nutty consistency, not to mention the nutritional benefits. I came up with a strawberry topping pancake recipe strictly because I wanted something different for breakfast. I was more hungry than usual and this recipe was just the thing to manage that craving.
Choose a pancake mix that offers ingredients like, Wheat flour, Barley flour, Rolled Oats, Brown Rice. These will offer some calcium, fiber and Iron. So you’ll have a good start right up front.
For the Pancakes, you’ll need:
2 cups Pancake Mix (Multigrain best)
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons oil
1 medium griddle or non stick pan
1 wire whip
1 teaspoon – Honey
1 teaspoon – Almond Butter
3 large Strawberries
1 tablespoon – Plain Non-fat Greek Yogurt
Follow the directions on the pancake mix box. It usually goes something like this:
2 cups of Multigrain Mix.
1 cup of milk ( I use almond milk, you might choose whatever milk you like best.)
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons of oil ( I used olive, you might choose another, olive oil is usually used for low slow temperatures. I use low temperatures.)
Use a wire whip and blend the ingredients until smooth. Pour about ¼ cup per pancake onto a lightly oiled and preheated 375 F griddle or nonstick pan. Cook almost 1 ½ minutes on each side or until golden brown. This will usually make 12 – 14 pancakes.
Preparation to eat them: (this is the fun part.)
Taking your plate, swirl a squeeze of honey on the bottom of the plate. Now
take your favorite nut butter, (I use almond butter.) and swirl a teaspoon full, on the bottom of the plate. This will mix in with the honey. Lay one pancake on top of this mix of honey and nut butter.
Then smooth nut butter on top of the second pancake.
Take your 3 large strawberries and slice them thinly. Sprinkle these slices on top of your pancakes. (If you are in a rush, in the interest of time just put the whole strawberries on the plate and slice them as you eat, that’s really sorta fun.) Top the pancakes with a tablespoon of plain non-fat Greek yogurt.
Want some extra crunch?
Sprinkle a few walnuts on top. This adds that extras deliciousness.
Now stick your fork in and enjoy. Bon Appetit!
If you prefer a little heartier breakfast, add an egg on the side.
