You know when you are in the mood for something, and you are bound and determined to get it. Well, that was my family. I am not one of those "run-to-the-grocery-store-last-minute" kind of people, so that was not about to happen. Instead, I put on my super-mom cape and came up with what I hoped would satisfy their craving.
Here are the ingredients I used to make this recipe.
- NO-EGG PANCAKES
- 1 C. white flour
- 3 Tbs. white sugar
- 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 1/2 Tbs. vanilla yogurt
- 3/4 c. water
- Egg substitute
- 1 Tbs. ground flaxseed
- 3 Tbs. water
When I make pancakes on the weekend I like to make a large batch and freeze the left over ones. My kids like to have them available to them during the school week. If they are running late they pop one or two in the microwave, grab a banana, and head to school.
Here's how to prepare my No-egg pancakes:
Combine ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl and let sit while preparing other ingredients. This allows the mixture to thicken.
Combine first 4 ingredients and mix. Add yogurt, water, and egg substitute. Cook on cast iron skillet or electric skillet. Batter will take a little longer to cook through than traditional pancake batter. They are ready to flip when they are nice and browned.
If you haven't cooked on cast iron, take a look at my post about cooking with cast iron. It's a healthy way to cook, and there's all kinds of cookware.
After preparing these no-egg, no-milk, no-oil pancakes, I ended up even impressing myself! They turned out light, fluffy, and a little sweet. I served mine with oranges because the tartness of the oranges brought out the sweetness of the pancakes. If you prefer your pancakes less sweet you can use plain yogurt or you may skip the sugar.
The next time you are running low on traditional baking ingredients and have a hunger for pancakes give this recipe a try OR try it just because they are delicious! This is also a great recipe for those of you that have egg allergies. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
