Cinnamon Pancakes

I thought I would share with you a wonderful recipe that I created the other night.  I hadn't made pancakes for a while and the craving had definitely started up again :)

  • 1/2 cup of oat flour (or you can use blended oats, wholewheat flour or regular white)
  • 1/2 tblspn baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of soy milk (to start, then you may want to add some more as you go)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp agave nectar 

I added a little more milk to the mix as I like my pancakes thick, but not too thick, if you know what I mean.  I had to spoon the mixture onto the fry pan (it kind of has the same consistency as cake mix), so that is why the pancakes are nice and round.  When I pour the mix from a bowl, it does not look so pretty! Also, when I added my cinnamon, I forgot how quickly it comes out of the shaker.  I thought I had gone way overboard, but it was amazing and I loved it.

I cooked the pancakes through and then set them aside to make the next few.  Once they were all done, I placed them all back in the fry pan to heat up just before serving.

I topped the pancake with some Sainsburys Peanut butter with choc chips and agave nectar. 

I also tried to eat this in a nice organised way.  Obviously, after I took the below photo it all fell apart and I stuffed my face (which is the way I usually eat pancakes).

What kind of flavor do you like in a pancake?  Do you prefer plain pancakes with your own flavor on top or do you prefer the flavor actually in the pancake?
