HEALTHY OATMEAL PANCAKES


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you will be surprised how much eating breakfast daily does to your body mentally, physically and emotionally. Back in High school, I never paid much attention to eating breakfast daily and it made me gain a lot of weight because I would starve myself in the morning and later in the afternoon when I come home from school, I would binge on everything I found in the kitchen until my hunger eased. After I graduated from high school, I really started thinking about my body and most importantly how I wanted to feel mentally and emotionally. That's when I made my decision to change my sedentary lifestyle forever. 

Now, enough about my boring past, I would like to share one of my favorite pancake recipes that is both delicious and healthy. It has all of the ingredients that aid in fat loss while making you feel great every morning! 

Ingredients ( makes about 4-5 small pancakes)
1/2 CUP - Oatmeal
2 Whole eggs ( you can substitute one egg for egg whites)
1/8 CUP  - Almond Milk
2 Sachets Stevia
1 tsp Cinnamon 
1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Mix all of the ingredients together until the batter is smooth and pour the batter on a skillet greased with olive oil/coconut oil! That's it! 
NOTE- you can add a tsp of water if the batter  is too thick!

NOW FOR THE TOPPING
A healthier alternative for maple syrup.
1) grab some blueberries and smash them in a bowl with a spoon 
2) Mix the blueberries with Greek yogurt 
3) Add some Chia seeds 

It's ready to go! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know in the comments how it turned out for you! oxo <3
