Have you noticed that I've been making a lot of waffles for weekend brunches? Please know I am a pancake girl at heart - always have been, always will be. And I'm happy that my first post of 2021 is a pancake recipe! I can't believe I haven't shared a new recipe since December 16th when I shared my Cinnamon Raisin Bagels - I must have made them 5 times over the holidays!
It's been a bit busy around here because Vienna was off school for two weeks with Christmas break which was SO MUCH FUN and we just recently launched 21 Days to Joyous Health! Don't worry if you missed out on this because we will run it again in the spring because everyone has been loving it! I tell you this because this is a brand new recipe featured in 21 Days to Joyous Health and I wanted to create a recipe video out of it.
I added protein powder by Genuine Health to these pancakes to make them even more satisfying and satiating.
Protein is an important macronutrient for tissue building and repair in the body and for pretty much every cell and enzyme in the human body.
I notice that most people lack adequate protein, particularly at breakfast especially if you're just eating a bowl of cereal and running out the door or walking over to your home office desk.
These pancakes will keep you satisfied for hours especially if you pile them high with toppings. My favourite toppings:
This recipe is vegan (egg-free), gluten-free, kid-approved and full of vitamins, minerals and good fat (and protein, but you already knew that!).
Here's my delicious recipe!
Makes 12 Pancakes
*You can make your own oat flour by putting 3-4 cups of oats into a blender or food processor and blitzing until very fine like flour.
**I used Genuine Health organic fermented vegan protein. Use code JOYOUS20 for 20% off.

I feel totally satisfied with three of these pancakes loaded up with my favourite toppings! Walker usually eats four and Vienna is satisfied with two pancakes. Since this recipe makes 12 pancakes, we always have a few leftovers to pop into the toaster the next day.
