Happy Monday! Did everyone have a great weekend? I sure did. I went back to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and got to see a few of my best friends, watch a field hockey game, and see Jim Harbaugh’s first win as the Michigan football head coach!
After that great of a weekend, I wanted to give you that great of a recipe. This Meatless Monday recipe will be a great start to your week and has quickly become one of my favorite breakfasts!! I love overnight oats and/or overnight chia pudding, but sometimes I just don’t like the consistency. So, I created this recipe by dumping my overnight oats into my blender, adding a few ingredients, and making pancakes. I believe if you had a side by side taste test with these pancakes and the traditional pancake, you couldn’t tell the difference. I hope you give this recipe a try!
2 Cups Oats
2 Cups Milk (I used almond)
2 TBSP Cocoa Powder
2 TBSP Honey
2 TSP Cinnamon
2 TSP Baking powder
1 t. Vanilla
Pinch of salt
Combine oats, almond milk, cocoa powder, honey, cinnamon, and vanilla in a bowl and transfer to a container that can be sealed
Place in fridge overnight
In the morning, place overnight oats in a blender and pulse until a smooth consistency
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until just combined (batter will be a little lumpy)
Heat a skillet to medium-high heat
Spray with cooking spray or drizzle a small amount of EVOO into pan
When skillet is hot, pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan
When the pancake starts to bubble, flip
Repeat process until all of batter is cooked into pancakes
Top with your choice of toppings!
