Red, White, and Banana Pancakes

Happy Independence Day Friends!

I would first like to take a moment to THANK all of the men and women who are away from their families fighting to keep our INDEPENDENCE and FREEDOM! May you all have a little time today to kick back and enjoy some fun in the HOT Iraq sun.

This morning started off kind of “late” in the Norberg household. Zachary slept in until 8:30am, which was super nice because for some reason I could not sleep last night. We also woke up to SUNSHINE and it was 75 outside!!! WOOOOO yay for summer, and on the perfect day for it. I quickly put Zachary in his park/play clothes and we took off for a quick 1.5 mile walk and some play time. The weather put me into such a GREAT mood that I decided we needed some pancakes for breakfast! I adore this recipe. It is so quick and easy and….drum roll…..SUGARLESS!!!!

Here’s your Sugarless Pancake goodie list: (This recipe makes a ton of cakes so cut in half to serve 1 or 2 people, seriously we have a freezer bag full of left overs and a huge bowl of fruit glaze)

-2 Organic eggs

-2 cups Light Soy Milk, I use Vanilla flavored

-2 tsp Vanilla Extract

-2 cups Wheat Flour, or whatever you use to bake with-it’s your preference

-3 tsp Baking Powder

-1/2 tsp salt

Beat eggs, milk, and vanilla together. Combine remaining goodies and stir into batter, just until smooth. DO NOT over mix, remember they’re pancakes so some lumps are OK. Heat non-stick skillet or griddle to medium high-ish heat and spray with butter flavored cooking spray. Ladle pancakes onto cooking surface or into skillet and allow to cook until top of pancake is very bubbly, then flip and cook until pancake is golden and moves easily with out oozing.

Fruit Glaze-TOPPING-YUM-O:

-2 frozen packages Strawberries

-2 frozen packages Blueberries

-2 bananas, sliced-not to thick and not to thin give them a rough slice

Remember for the frozen packages I use the Target Market Pantry brand individual pouches of strawberries and blueberries.

Heat non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray to medium high heat, pour all fruit into skillet and constantly stir until bubbling. Heat all of the fruit until no longer frozen and it becomes glazed over.

Plate pancake and add a spoonful of fruit glaze to the top, and try not to stuff your face LOL :).
