Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 5 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup rolled oats (use wheat/gluten-free, if nedded)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup blueberries or wild blueberries, fresh or frozen or use strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp. chia or flax seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 10 almonds
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • In a blender, combine the oats, eggs, banana, berries, chia or flax seeds, cinnamon and salt and blend at high speed until pureed.
  • Add the almonds and blend them for about 10 seconds (you want them to stay a little chunky).
  • In a large nonstick skillet or on a griddle, heat the butter or oil over medium heat and spread it around the pan.
  • Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour the batter into the pan in about 1/4 cup increments, and cook them for about 3 minutes per side until they are browned. After flipping them, sprinkle the pancakes with a little more cinnamon, if desired.
  • Serve the pancakes immediately, topped with butter and/or syrup, if desired, or cool and freeze them and reheat them in the microwave or oven.
