BREAKFAST WAS A FIBER/HEART GOODNESS #APPLE/FLAX-SEED PANCAKES

I was in a super-charge mood from my morning’s workout. The endorphins gained kept me in an upbeat mood for sometime. Thus, I went with the flow and hopped in my kitchen to make yours truly a powerhouse breakfast. I knew beforehand that the apple on my counter was heading somewhat ‘south’. I hate when that happens.

So, like the thrifty gal that I am; or perhaps I should state a restorer that I am, I decided to breathe back life. I did that by grabbing my box grater and shredded the fiber wonder. I added this to a batter made up of whole wheat and all-purpose flour and other ingredients. My mission was to make apple and flax-seed pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • whole-wheat flour (1/2 cup)
  • All purpose flour (1/2 cup)
  • Baking powder (1 tsp)
  • Flax seeds (1 tbsp)
  • Salt(pinch)
  • Cinnamon (1 tsp)
  • Milk (3/4 cup)
  • Egg (1 egg)
  • Shredded apple (1 apple)
  • Melted butter (1 tbsp)
  • Sour cream (1 tsp)
  • Vanilla (splash)
  • Pam spray
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Orange slices

Method:

  1. In a bowl, dried ingredients were added to wet. These were folded together without overworking batter.
  2. In a hot skillet under low to medium heat, Pam spray was added.
  3. Each pancake was dispensed using a 1/3 measuring cup and cooked on both sides until finished.
  4. In sauce pan, chopped strawberries were added with a teaspoon of honey and squeeze of lemon.
  5. Under low heat, strawberries were reduced to a semi sauce-like consistency with chunks.
  6. Pancakes were topped with strawberry sauce.

On the side, I served fresh straw and blueberries along with orange slices.
