Clean Eating Pancakes + Berry Syrup Recipe

Clean Eating Pancakes + Berry Syrup Recipe (via All Sorts of Pretty)

Happy Monday, friends!  I am *really* excited about this recipe I’m sharing today.  Pancake Sunday is a tradition Parker and I have been keeping for a long time, but now that we’re eating a lot healthier, we’ve had to make a couple of adjustments.  Believe it or not though, these pancakes taste pretty darn close to the real thing so we’ve really enjoyed continuing our Sunday tradition without sacrificing too much.

I’m using my trusty oat flour again on this recipe, which is essentially ground up oatmeal you can grind yourself in a food processor or buy in the store.  If you are allergic to oats or trying to go Paleo, use whatever flour you like – coconut, almond, buckwheat – but do know the consistency may change.

You know I’m trying to cut back on sugar, so I’ve found that the perfect sweetener for this is 1 tablespoon xylitol and 1 tablespoon stevia in the raw.  You can use splenda or regular sugar if you’re not quite with me on the sugar free thing :) .  I buy my xylitol online and get Stevia in the Raw in the baking section at the grocery store.  Whole Foods or some really good health food sections might have them both though.

Also!  I use greek yogurt here to give it some consistency, but if you’re dairy-free, you can used mashed up bananas or pumpkin puree as a substitute.

This comes together really easily, just like any other pancake recipe.  There’s lots of great protein in here from the egg whites and greek yogurt, but you could also add some vanilla protein powder to the dry ingredients if you wanted to make these power pancakes to eat after a workout.

You can drizzle these in maple syrup or top with peanut butter or fresh fruit, but my favorite way to eat these is to make a SUPER EASY berry syrup.  I always have frozen berries in the freezer, so I just defrost 2 cups in the microwave and add 3 tablespoons of water and a dash of stevia and put in a blender on high for a few seconds.  I find it to be a really satisfying alternative to the calorie and sugar dense maple syrup (that is SO good).  Only natural sugars here and I don’t find this to spike my blood sugar. I’m able to have a few and feel really, really good – no guilt :).

Clean Eating Pancakes with Berry Syrup Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (or flour of your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp. xylitol + 1 Tbsp. Stevia in the Raw (or 2 Tbsp. Splenda)
  • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup 0% fat greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 almond milk (or milk of your choice)

Directions

  • Preheat griddle to medium heat.
  • Mix oat flour, sweetener, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Whisk together egg whites, greek yogurt and milk.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
  • Spray griddle with non-stick butter spray.
  • Scoop batter with a 1/4 cup measuring cup onto griddle. Cook 3-5 minutes on a side.

Makes 12-14 pancakes.

Tip: These freeze well too, so if you have leftovers, just lay them on a plate – not touching – and place in the freezer for about an hour, then you can stack in a plastic container or bag for storage.  To reheat, just pop in the microwave for 2 minutes on 50% power.

Berry Syrup

  • Combine 2 cups berries (if using frozen, thaw first) with 3 Tbsp water and a dash of stevia (optional).
  • Blend on high for 10-15 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
  • Add more water for a thinner syrup, less for a thicker jam-type consistency.

What do you think?  Would you try these pancakes or is the real thing just too good to try to make healthy?  I’ll be honest – I think the very best pancakes in the world come from (wait for it) Cracker Barrel.  There are none that taste better in my opinion, but all that butter (I don’t even want to know how much!) is best saved for rare occasions.  :)

xoxo

    These look delicious (and quite adorable)! I really need to start making more things from scratch… Also, are those measuring cups the hedgehogs from anthropologie? (Love them!)

    Do u have the nutritional data?
    If adding protein powder, how does that change ingredient amounts?

      Hey Shelley! If you added protein powder, just add a little more liquid. I don’t have the nutritional data (sorry!) but you could quickly add up everything using myfitnesspal.com or something similar. Hope this helps! :)

    I made this last night after my workout and it was fab. I added protein powder to the dry ingredients. For the syrup, I defrosted some fresh frozen strawberries and threw them in a saucepan on the stove top with some honey and made a kind of “Fruit on the Bottom” reduction. It tasted great! Thanks for this recipe. I will be using it again!

    Just made these-AMAZING!! I didn’t have oat flour but simply blended some oats instead and still worked perfectly. I did make the berry topping, but they are so tasty without aswell due to the cinnamon! Loved it :)

    Cockroaches invade our house most frequently and cause utter
    disgust and discomfort. Lots of people assume they need to choose an exterminator,
    especially for problems like roaches in house walls.
    People, especially women, are terrified of seeing pests roaming around the house.

    Fortunately, there are always quite a few things
    that people can do in order to get rid of those pests.

    If you hae one female roach and she lays 400 eggs in a
    yeazr and those 400 lay 400 that is 160,000 cockroaches from one female roacfh and how many
    homes and restaurants have only just one. Since you cant
    turn off your furnace aand freeze them out, thee only option is to seal or remove every speck of food you have in your home.
    t set up nests in these areas, which will only lead to infestation.

    Remove the vegetables from the water and immediately place them in a bowl of ice water to stop
    the cooking process. It is possible that the wine can pick up the aromas of other items stored
    nearby. This is determkined by taking into account wholesomeness, freshness, flavor, aroma, nutritional value, texture and color.
