Special Pancakes

From Patty:

Wheat free, sugar free and fat free (Or, don't make it fat free, but don't slop margerine on it either, instead, sprinkle a tablespoon of flaxseed meal atop the pancakes and fit in your Omega 3's and lignins).


  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1 small banana (4 oz)
  • 4 ounces blueberries
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • 1 T baking powder
  • Water to taste
  • Aerosol-free cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened organic soy milk
  • 1/2 cup organic skim milk
  • 2 ounces organic, fairly traded espresso (I buy it at my food co-op and
    make it on my stove top in a french pot, often they can purchased for less
    than $10 at nice kitchen stores)
  • Optional: Stevia and more cinnamon to taste


  1. Mix oatbran with cinnamon and baking powder, add water until
    you reach the pancake consistancy you desire. Slice banana and add to the
  2. Spray frying pan with cooking spray, pour pancakes (makes four small
  3. Heat blueberries, add one package of stevia or leave them plain and
    natural. Pour blueberries on top for an antioxident-packed natural "syrup."
  4. Brew espresso. Heat milk. Pour together. I add two packages of Stevia and
    sprinkle with cinnamon, or, sometimes, sugar-free cocoa.
  5. Dietary Exchange: 2 fruits, 2 1/2 starch, 1 dairy and, if you add the
    flaxseed meal, 1/2 fat.
  6. Enjoy!
