Mish-Mash Pancakes


These pancakes are a big mish-mash of ingredients I happened to have on hand one Saturday morning. The result was some really delicious pancakes!


1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 of a banana, mashed
1/2 tsp tsp vanilla

Combine flour, flax, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Add to dry ingredients, stirring until combined. Pour onto a hot griddle and cook each side until golden brown.

Cole asked me to spell his name with the pancake batter, so I did, not realizing that I was creating a monster. Now every Saturday morning I must make pancakes that spell ‘Cole’. Luckily Bennett hasn’t caught onto this yet. Anyway, these were very yummy pancakes, and I liked that they were quite filling and had lots of nutritious ingredients in them. I especially liked the cottage cheese; it complimented the sweetness of the applesauce and banana very nicely. You don’t even really need syrup on these pancakes because they have a lot of flavour already. Well ok, maybe a little syrup. What’s a pancake without syrup, right?
