As a stay at home mom, I need to change it up with breakfast for my kids. Mine love these pancakes, and they're healthy too! You can't beat that.
I don't even need to put syrup on them. That's how good these pancakes are.
This morning, Nicholas(2), wanted to help mommy makes these yummy breakfast pancakes, and what a great helper he was. Of course he kept trying to eat the batter, but he was a good listener when I explained to him we cannot eat it because of the raw eggs.
Typically I use almond or coconut flour, however I was all out, so decided to use whole wheat. They still came out great.
Healthy Fruit and Nut Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup roughly chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cups coconut or almond milk
1 tsp maple extract
1 cup berries
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, nuts, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine banana, egg and milk with an electric mixer for 1 minute to combine. Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture, and stir until evenly mixed. Stir in berries and maple extract. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat, or melt butter in skillet over medium-low heat. Make pancakes using 1/3 c. batter each. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the batter is bubbling on the top of the pancake and the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side. Repeat until batter is gone.
Place any extra cooked pancakes in plastic bags and refrigerate or freezer to store.
These are great for the kids and I do the maple extract so the pancakes have that maple flavor and don't need syrup covering them.

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs .

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
