Once in a while, something special comes along that makes your healthy eating plan that much easier...for me, this wonderful item was FlapJacked Protein Pancake mix I came across at the store a couple of months ago. It's amazing for baking, muffins, and some darn delectable pancakes, like these yummy PB&J ones I slapped on the griddle today. To make this recipe even more delightful, I threw together a fresh berry jam using my frozen antioxidant frozen blend from Costco, some coconut sugar, and a little water. It came out delicious...and it's healthy to boot!
Heres what you'll need:
For the pancakes ❤️
1/2 cup FlapJacked Buttermilk Pancake mix
2 tbsp peanut butter powder
2 tbsp egg whites
1 tsp hemp oil (can sub olive, canola, or coconut if desired)
1/3 cup+2 tbsp water
For the Berry Jam 🍓
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 tsp coconut sugar
splash vanilla extract
2 tbsp water
Putting it all together:
First, place the berries, sugar, vanilla and 2 tbsp water into a small saucepan, heating on medium low until the mixture begins to simmer, stirring frequently. Leave uncovered as it reduces so it will thicken up a little. Turn off heat once the berry mixture has simmered for about 5-6 minutes, set aside until pancakes are ready ⏲
*this Berry jam also works great atop some Banana "Nice" cream of frozen yogurt!
Next, combine all ingredients for the pancakes, setting aside while your griddle/pan preheats on medium (about 2-3 minutes per package instructions). Spray lightly with cooking spray, then dollop batter onto the hot pan (about 3 tbsp each made 4 flapjacks). Flip the cakes over when bubbles come through the top, cooking another minute or so on the other side. Once the pancakes are done, it's time to layer up this beautiful and delicious breakfast! 🍽
