Ah, breakfast. I can already smell the gooey maple syrup and sizzling coffee just from reading that word and looking at this picture.
As you can tell, I LOVE breakfast foods, especially one that is easy and healthy 😉
Although some say it’s the most important meal of the day, others will completely scratch this meal out of their day.
But regardless of that, I have not met one person who DOESN’T love breakfast foods! And if you don’t… well… I am so sorry.
Okay, so we have all come to know and love all of the yummy, bready options of breakfast such as pancakes, waffles, french toast, muffins, and so on. But then we realize that maybe we want a healthier option so we don’t feel as bad eating it (guilty as charged).
So, here is my GO-TO, super easy recipe for healthy pancakes!
1 Cup of Kodiak Cake Pancake and Waffle Mix (you can use any flavor but my favorite is the buttermilk!)
1 Cup of Water
1 tbsp Chia seeds (optional)
1 tbsp Cinnamon (optional)
Agave (optional – in place of maple syrup)
Mix the pancake mix and water until you get a nice consistency for your pancakes. Add more water for a thinner consistency or less for a thicker one!
Add in your chia seeds – this is a GREAT way to add some healthy fats into your diet without even tasting it! They are kind of just… there haha!
Add in your cinnamon – I personally LOVE the taste of cinnamon and it is a great antioxidant!
Take a spoonful of your mixture and place it on your pan – flip once you start to see bubbles start to form in the mixture
Add on your (optional) fruits
Voila! You are ready to eat your healthy pancakes!
And like any other pancake recipe, we need the sauce to eat it with! I have opted to switch out maple syrup for agave. I find that the taste is a lot sweeter and lighter than when I eat it with maple syrup, but your choice of sauce is totally up to you!
I know it can be a struggle to find healthy options for breakfast meals, so that’s why I decided to share mine with you!
Kodiak Cakes are so great for a healthier option for bready foods that I honestly just can’t give up. Great news is that you can find them literally anywhere such as Amazon or Target!
