Microwaveable Cinnamon-Vanilla Pancake X’s Two

X’s Two? Well you have the choice of making it vegan or non-vegan. I love making both and it’s great because you can really use up what you have on hand. I have mixed flours and not, so don’t worry if you only have one or the other. BOTH come out very delicious and have a nice texture.IMG_20121207_094627You can save these pancakes in the fridge for about 3-4 days in an air tight container or even freeze them. Best of all, it’s microwaveable. Yes, I have been super lazy and just pop the batter into the microwave and I bring to you “insta- gluten-free-microwavable-pancake-goodness.” Not to mention that the non-vegan pancake has about 12g (and about 220 calories) of protein per serving and the vegan one has about 8g (and about 170 calories) depending on which ingredients you use of course. Enjoy!IMG_20121206_214446Ingredients for Non-Vegan Pancake (Serves THREE)

  • 2/3 Cup of Plain (or Vanilla) Chobani Greek Yogurt (or a 6oz. container, or an extra 1/2 Cup of Milk if you don’t have yogurt on hand)
  • 1 Large Egg’s White

  • 1 Cup of GF Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cup of Rice Flour (or your choice or do an extra 1/2 cup of oats)
  • 1 tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1-2 Packets of Stevia (or 1-2 tsps of your choice sugar)
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1-2 tsps of Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter* (or your choice nut butter; optional*)

Place yogurt, milk, egg white and vanilla into a blender. Blend these wet ingredients until very liquid-y. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until you reach  “pancake batter” consistency of your choice. If you want the batter thinner add more milk. If you want it thicker, add more oats or rice flour.

Divide the mixture between three large plates or six small ones that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with more cinnamon or nuts of your choice. Place in the microwave for two to three minutes (depending on your microwave. Remove carefully from plate with a spatula.
