Proper nutrition is one element in your training that you can’t skimp on! Replace that ready-made, pancake mix for hearty and healthy greek yogurt pancakes. Not only will you be fueling your body for the training ahead of you, but your kids (and your husband) won’t know the difference!
6 oz 1% or 2% greek yogurt
1/4 c coconut flour
1/4 c gluten-free oat flour
3/4 c gluten-free quick cook oats
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c unsweetened, unflavored coconut milk
1 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 whole egg
1 egg white
1. Heat non-stick pan or griddle. Spray with olive oil (if you have a mister) or pour a little olive oil onto a paper towel and spread over pan or griddle surface to prevent sticking.
2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or large blender and mix for approximately 30-45 seconds.
3. Spoon batter into pan, thinning as you go. Batter will be rather thick and pancakes will be slightly thicker than traditional pancakes. If you find that batter is too thick, add more coconut milk and mix again.
4. Allow pancakes to cook until bubbles appear, flip and cook thoroughly.
Looking for a suggestion on syrup? Skip the corn-syrup laden pancake syrup and go for the good stuff! 100% Maple Syrup is your best bet!
