This breakfast recipe is super-fast, easy, healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, and delicious! I stumbled upon this recipe on the website livestrong.com – tried it – loved it – and it’s now a part of my regular breakfast rotation! It all mixes up in a blender, food processor, and even a personal sized smoothie blender works.

The single-serving makes about 5-6 3-inch pancakes, or 4-5 4-inch pancakes.

Avoid the breakfast sugar rush by staying away from syrups or anything with a lot of added sugar. Instead, some healthy delicious topping choices are nut butters, Greek yogurt and sliced fruit, applesauce (no added sugar kind), fruit compote (no added sugar).
