Note: almond milk can be substituted with cow milk. Flaxseeds are also optional but they are super-duper healthy and they’re easily found in Egypt.
1 1/4 cup – almond milk, unsweetened
1 3/4 cup – oats, dry
1/4 cup – flaxseed, ground
1 medium – banana
1 tablespoon – honey
1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon – cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon – sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoon – baking powder
2 large – egg
1 tablespoon – coconut oil
1 cup – blueberries or strawberries
Place all ingredients, except eggs, coconut oil and blueberries into a good quality blender. Blend until oats are ground and everything is mixed well.
Add eggs and pulse until incorporated.
Heat a griddle over medium heat and melt a teaspoon or two of coconut oil or butter. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Drop 3-4 blueberries onto each pancake before flipping. Brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side) and serve hot with more blueberries and pure maple syrup. If the batter is too thick to pour, add a tablespoon or two of almond milk to thin.
