Healthy Cinnamon Pancakes

Science Corner
Cinnamon has a plethora of science-backed health benefits like anti-diabetes, cholesterol-lowering, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-Parkinson's and female hormone balancing activities - all in once spice, that's pretty darned remarkable. Oats contain a special kind of fiber called beta-glucan which has been shown to lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, boost immune function, stabilize blood sugar and even prevent breast cancer. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium which is critical for heart function. Creamy and naturally sweet, they contain fiber to promote digestion and are a 'PREbiotic' - food that feeds the good bacteria in your digestive tract. All of these nutritional powerhouses join forces with omega-3 and calcium-rich chia seeds in this delicious and decadent breakfast that is a delicious, energizing and nutritious way to start your tot's (and your) day.

  • Yields: 8 pancakes

Ingredients

2 bananas

2 eggs

1 cup oats

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon cinnamon, preferable Ceylon

Butter or coconut oil for cooking

Directions

Blend the pancakes ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or butter over medium in a skillet. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour in the pancake batter and cook until it sets, 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for about a minute. Wipe the pan clean with a dish towel between pancakes to prevent burning.

Serve the pancakes with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.
