I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded pretty interesting. Avocado buttermilk pancakes? I know many people would think it was disgusting – but these were one of the best pancake recipes I’ve ever made. I had it for breakfast every day this week.
(I know the title says “Butter” pancake – it should be “buttermilk” 🙂 🙂
Recipe based on California Avocado Commission recipe. These are light and fluffy and so good!!! They don't taste like avocados - so you can make them and not even mention it!
- 2 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tbsp. melted butter
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, peeled and pitted
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- Combine buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, honey and vanilla in a blender container. Blend until well combined. Add avocado and blend until smooth.
- Add remaining ingredients and pulse several times, just until dry ingredients are incorporated. Be careful to not over mix.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Scoop batter onto griddle using a 1/4-cup measuring cup. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes flip to other side with a wide spatula. Cook on second side until golden brown.
- Serve hot.
If you wanted – you could add a few chocolate chips to these. I served mine with 1 cut up banana on top and sugar free syrup.
The calories aren’t bad either! The calories below are for each pancake:
In other news – 2 of my kids went back to school. My oldest is a senior in high school and my middle son is a sophomore. I was lucky to get this ONE photo before they left for school.
I want to say Mark was in pre-school in this picture and Paul was in 1st grade.
So – like many people – getting back into the back to school groove has been tough. I have to get up 2 hours before I have to be at work to get them out the door. And since I live less than 2 miles from my office – that’s A LOT of downtime before work. But – just like my twin sister Biz – I have gotten bizzy in my kitchen!
I’ve made awesome breakfasts (like these pancakes), prepped food for dinner so it’s easier to get dinner on the table when I get home, I’ve reorganized my fridge, organized my pantry, checked e-mail, fixed my hair fancy, put on makeup, etc… Kind of a shock since over the summer I slept in until the last possible second before I had to get ready for work. 🙂
My daughter starts 6th grade on Monday, so that’s when it will really get busy in the mornings here!
And in other news, I have a VERY inspiring weight loss success story coming up. This woman lost over 200 pounds LATER in life – and has kept it off and is motivating people who have struggled their whole life. So you’ll have to come back soon to check that out, I should have her story in a week or so.
Are your kids back in school yet? How’s it going??
