I wanted to create a breakfast pancake that was more nutritious for my children. The texture of these pancakes is a little different than traditional pancakes, but they still taste very good and look just the same. I'm sure there are many opportunities for substitutions.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Drain navy beans (or cook up dry ones).
  2. Place beans, flax meal, and buttermilk in a blender or food processor. Blend until you have a creamy batter-like consistency. Remove to a large bowl.
  3. Whisk together egg yolks (preserving the whites) with the melted butter.
  4. Stir yolk/butter combination and egg whites, vanilla, almond extract, and sugar into the bean mixture.
  5. Combine flour, and baking powder, nutmeg, and oat bran.
  6. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and whisk until just combined.
  7. Heat skillet and make just as you would pancakes.
  8. Serve up with maple syrup.
