Ana Gourmet: Oat Bran Pancakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef Roxanne D.

Fluffy, low cal, vegan pancakes made with whole wheat flour and oat bran. My whole family loves them and don't seem to suspect for one minute that they're a diet friendly food item. They have a lovely oaty flavor to them and they're very filling. The only downside is they're not completely fat free, but they are very low in fat. See the nutritional information table for more details. Try these with your favorite sugar free syrup, jam or fresh fruit for a satisfying low cal breakfast. Enjoy.

Very often vegan pancakes end up being large and thin, a bit rubbery. In this case though, they remained the size you poured and rose quite a bit. I found you have to cook them low & slow to get the inside cooked through properly. I love the addition of oat bran, and the cinnamon was nice. I didn't really detect the maple extract flavour very much, so you could easily sub vanilla if you had to. Thanks for an enjoyable breakfast!
