So, I had this bag of oat bran that I had just gotten from the market, and I was looking online for what I could do with it, besides make it into a hot cereal for my son. I didn't have a bunch of it, but I wanted to incorporate it's goodness into something yummy. Woo hoo! Pancakes it is! As usual, I found a recipe online, got some ideas, and made my own creation. The batter was a little bit thicker than normal pancake batter, but it worked fine, and tasted delicious! And, of course, my son LOVED them! I was happy because oat bran is high in fiber, protein and B vitamins! :) Enjoy!
1/2 cup Oat Bran
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp milk
1 tsp Agave Nectar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)*
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except blueberries, until smooth. Gently fold in blueberries. Spray a non-stick skillet with non-stick spray. Over medium-high heat, pour batter by the 1/4 cup-full into skillet. Flip when bubbles begin to form on top, or when edges turn light brown. Cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
*Note: You can use any fruit you like. I had a bunch of blueberries on hand and wanted to use them up. :)
