1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce
1 tbs. chia seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix ingredients together until smooth. Scoop out batter into desired pancake size onto a lightly buttered griddle. Cook just like you would regular pancakes.
** To get the consistency of pancake batter, I turn my oats into a fine powder using my Nutribullet. I then add the rest of my ingredients and finish mixing in the Nutribullet. This is not necessary. They will taste just fine without this step. This just makes the texture turn out more like a pancake, and less like an oatmeal cake.
**I use 1/4 c. measuring cup to scoop out my batter into desired sizes.
** These keep in the fridge for a few days. They also freeze well.
** When my twins were nine months old, one batch made enough for a few days, since they were sharing a pancake. Now that they each get their own pancake everyday, I quadruple this recipe, and freeze the leftover pancakes.
