With school just about to start again, here is an easy and tasty pancake recipe:
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons maple or agave syrup, plus more for drizzling
- 1 tablespoon butter
Combine oats, applesauce, egg and maple or agave syrup in a blender and purée to make a smooth batter. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, drop 2 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet to form each of five pancakes, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Cook, flipping once, until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter and batter. Transfer pancakes to plates, drizzle with more maple or agave syrup and serve.
