Bread Crumb Pancakes (low Fat and Dairy Free!)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ladypit

This is an adaptation of a recipe from a 1950s cookbook called "500 Delicious Dishes From Leftovers". I have been looking for good things to do with leftover bread crumbs that don't involve frying! These are a somewhat bland pancake. I like to think of them as a blank canvas for maple syrup! But with no added sweetner they can be changed as you would like. My kids gobbled them up!

These were pretty good! I used whole wheat bread for the bread crumbs which probably affected the outcome a little. I recommend cooking these on med-low heat and cooking them a little longer than a normal pancake. When they were at the point that they looked like they were ready to be flipped, they were still pretty wet and fragile. It took some patience to loosen them from the pan without tearing them, but they all turned out perfectly golden brown. I served them with cherry syrup which they just soaked up. Thank you!
