Oatmeal Pancakes with Raspberries

fish tacos, black bean cakes, meal planning 012Pancakes made without the flour and added sugars - just a simple combination of banana, oats, eggs and vanilla extract.  Then I topped them with fresh raspberries and drizzled agave nectar and realized I'll never have a different kind of pancake ever again.

fish tacos, black bean cakes, meal planning 010You know those commercials from Quaker that basically say you can do just about anything after having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast?

Ya, they're not kidding.

These were so easy to put together, about 350 calories, full of fiber, protein and healthy carbs...

After eating a stack of these I took on a five mile hike all on my own!  This is a totally new concept to me since I have only ever hiked with someone else - so self motivation and energy was a must and these babies delivered.

I have another variation of these - Cinnamon Apple, which are great for the fall!
