This past week has been pretty tough with exams and all. I really wanted to treat myself to a big, luxurious, Sunday breakfast this morning, but I couldn't muster the energy to beat any egg whites, slice any bread, or even preheat the oven. Polynomials can really wipe a girl out.
This is a recipe was made for the extremely lazy morning -- the I-can't-even-stoop-over-to-grab-a-bowl-and-wooden-spoon kind of morning. Dump the apple (peel and everything), some flour, and some milk in the blender, and voila, super cinnamon-y apple pancake batter with the push of a button!
These pancakes are not only embarassingly easy to make, they're also mindbogglingly healthy and delicious too! They have lots of fiber from the whole wheat flour and apples, and are low in sugar. So go nuts with the maple syrup!
What's your favorite lazy breakfast?
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
1 apple, cored and quartered (peel on!)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup AP flour
Mix all of the ingredients together in the blender. Blend on "batter" setting. Heat a lightly greased skillet over medium high heat and cook pancakes until golden brown on each side. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
Makes about 10 pancakes (depending on how big you make them)
