💥The best oatmeal pancakes💥 Ingredients: 2 cups old fashion oats 1 tbsp baking powder 2 packets Splenda 1 pinch of salt 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 whole eggs 1 cup almond/coconut milk blend 1 medium ripe banana 1/4 cup pitted dates 1/2 cup water Direction: In a high-speed blender, add all of the dry ingredients; oats, baking powder, salt, and Splenda. Blend until it forms a flour. Add the milk, eggs, vanilla, and banana and blend on high for about another minute or so until it forms a batter, which will still be slightly lumpy. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and turn the fire to medium-low. Pour the batter into the skillet, forming what ever size pancake you prefer. I used about 1/3 of a cup of batter per pancake. Let cook until bubbles form, and flip to cook the other side. The recipe will make around 9 pancakes using 1/3c batter per pancake. Serve with fresh fruit of your choice. For the syrup, simply add the pitted dates and water to a small pot and cook on medium fire until a syrup forms, stirring occasionally. If the syrup is too thick simply add more water until you get the consistency you're looking for. Credit: @bethehappysoul
