Farm Girls is my expression of living in the Midwest. It's a little of everything Ive grown to love about this area and what I am interested in. My interests are refurbishing old things, scrapbooking, cooking, and documenting my life for my family and friends. Please take a minute to check out my life. Thanks!
I get in ruts where I am perfectly happy eating the same thing over and over. Case in point, pancakes. I love pancakes and whipping up a batch in the morning is easy. Maybe too easy which is why I decided to mix things up and created Power Pancakes.
What are Power Pancakes? Power Pancakes are made up of ingredients that give you brain power and physical endurance to start the day. They include blueberries, oatmeal, and flaxseeds. Before you get turned off by the word "flaxseed" just know that it's a super food, good for the brain, but you can't taste it. Double win! So don't write it off until you've given that little seed a try. You can find flaxseed in most grocery stores. I live in a country town and my Dillions sells it in the baking section with the flour and sugar. I recommend the ground kind because whole flaxseeds are like eating a sunflower seed. Not the texture I'm looking for in a pancake.
So here's my simple recipe. It yields 5 medium pancakes.
1/2 cup Pancake Mix 1 Tbls flaxseed 3 Tbls oatmeal Blueberries Water
Mix dry ingredients and add water to desired consistency. I use the pancake mix where water is all you need (so easy). Add blueberries and mix to coat. Add to warm griddle and enjoy.
Super, super easy and oh so yummy. Everyone will love them and good chance they won't know they're good for them.
