Twas the day after Christmas and our stomachs were grim,
the day before we feasted and fit too much in.
So on Boxing Day morning we vowed to do better,
Fibre filled pancakes fit the bill to the letter.
I am so happy with these oatmeal pancakes, they are fluffy, slightly sweet with a smidge of nuttiness from the oatmeal which, also delivers a hefty fibre dose. Delivering a healthy kick to the maple, turmeric is an amazing ingredient. It is an anti-inflammatory agent to treat a range of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic (www.whfoods.com).
Sweet peaches, spiced maple and chopped walnuts combined, I am officially in love with this breakfast. I hope you enjoy it too. Happy day after Christmas. x
1 cup flour (I used gluten free for the husband man)
2 1/2 tbs quick oats (organic if you can)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbs coconut sugar (or an unrefined sugar of your choice)
1 tbs vanilla
2 tbs olive oil
1 cup soy or almond milk
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground tumeric
1 peach, sliced in to wedges
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped roughly
Coconut yoghurt (optional)
Combine maple and turmeric in a sauce pan and heat slowly, stirring to dissolve. Set aside. Combine pancake ingredients in a large bowl and mix in to a batter. Allow to sit for a few minutes to thicken the batter. Heat a large skillet and a dollop of vegan or regular butter. Add two tablespoons of pancake mix to each pancake. Cook for around 3 minutes, or until bubbles appear and flip. Cook the pancake on the other side for about 1 1/2 minutes. Serve with sliced peaches, chopped walnuts, maple and a good dollop of coconut or regular yoghurt.
