My oatmeal raisin pancakes were inspired by Marcus Samuelsson’s recipe. This LGC recipe skips the butter, eggs, salt, oil & and everything else. You’d think it would taste like cardboard but it does not. Goes to show you that you don’t need fat, sugar or salt to make things tasty.
- 1 cup plain oats
- 1 cup whole grain pancake mix
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup almond milk (or you can use regular milk)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- non-stick cooking spray
1. Organize all your ingredients.
2. Combine all food ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir.
3. Heat pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Scoop and form 3″ diameter-pancakes and cook on medium heat. Cook until golden brown on each side. You shouldn’t need to cook longer than 2 minutes per side.
4. Serve hot with little maple syrup or agave nectar. Marcus Samuelsson even suggests trying it with peanut butter.
The one thing I would have done differently is make the pancakes thinner. Mine were pretty thick and almost cookie-like. But then again, I guess that’s not such a bad thing 😉 If you do make them thicker like I did, you really don’t need syrup or any sweetener. It really does taste like a cookie without all the sugar!
