You? I thought so.
Then you have come to the right place, cuz these Spiced Blender Pancakes are going to rock your world!!
Besides these pancakes being beyond easy to make and completely nutritious, they are damn good as well!
I have been playing around with blender pancakes for awhile now and to be honest, my first attempts were just so-so. It took me a couple of tries before getting a crave-worthy pancake that was good enough to share with you.
But these are the ones 🏆
For me, what makes this recipe so good, is the warming spices that we add in - cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg. These spices elevate the pancake from something rather boring into something crave-worthy <------ so don't skimp on them! If you are out of one spice, then just sub in more cinnamon in its place. Cinnamon makes my world go round.
When I like to get fancy, I top our pancakes with a dollop of yogurt, a sprinkle of hemp seeds, a handful of blackberries and maybe a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. On mornings when we are rushed, I grab a couple from the freezer, pop them into the toaster and then hand them over to the girls in the car ride to school.
However you serve these pancakes, they will be devoured in the matter of minutes. High-five to that 🙌!
Spiced Blender Pancakes
1 cup dry old-fashion oats (see notes)
1 ripe banana
1 large egg
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1. In a high speed blender, add in the oats, banana, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Blend on low for 10 seconds, scrape down sides, and then blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until the oats are complete broken down and the batter is smooth. Add in the baking powder and then blend on low for 20 seconds.
2. Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray, olive oil or coconut oil. Pour roughly 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto skillet and cook until bubbles appear, flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Continue process until all the batter is gone.
3. I find that sometimes the batter gets a little too thick during the waiting process. If that happens, add a tablespoon of milk into the batter at a time, and blend until you have the right consistency.
Notes - if gluten free, make sure you use oats that are specified as Gluten Free.
