The idea for this recipe started off as 3-5 ingredient pancakes. But then this recipe ended up with 13.
The next idea was to make these pancakes grain-free. And then I ended up with thin batter and added some whole wheat flour.
So basically, these pancakes are not at all what I set out to make, but they are absolutely delicious none the less. And those other ideas are still in the works, but have to perfect the recipe. Has anyone made 3-5 ingredient pancakes without bananas? That’s my goal but still need a little help! As for grain free, I really liked the idea of using oats as the flour, so I will definitely keep working on that. In the meantime, has anyone tried this before? Any suggestions?
Even though these pancakes have grains, and dairy, and eggs, even a little bit of sugar. It’s important to remember that they can still have a place in your diet. Probably not a stack as piled this high, but still, having a couple of pancakes is not going to put you wildly off track. I truly believe its important to eat all food groups, many in moderation, but all nonetheless. Any diet that eliminates an entire food group is probably not the right diet for you.

If you need to make your own oat flour. Add the oats to a food processor, and pulse until the oats become flour.
In a large bowl, add the oat flour, whole wheat flour, oats, salt, baking powder. Toss ingredients together.
To make the cashew butter, add the cashews, oil, and 1 tsp of vanilla to the food processor. Pulse until smooth.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and the milk.
Once combined, add the sugar, yogurt, 1 tsp of vanilla, and whisk until the ingredients are well incorporated
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Lightly mix together.
Add 2 tbsp of cashew butter, and lightly mix again.
Chop the blackberries and add them to the batter.
Spray a skillet with cooking spray and turn on to medium heat. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, add the batter to the skillet. Cook for about 4 minutes.
Flip the pancake and cook for about another 4 minutes.
Top with extra cashew butter, blackberries, and syrup!
Last minute, I got nervous that my batter was too thin and added a half a cup of whole wheat flour. I will try without it soon and get back to you! Or if you try without the extra flour let me know!
