Healthy breakfasts: oat pancakes with cinnamon apples and vanilla ice-cream


The more people I observe the more I understand why they rather skip breakfast than cook something.. Some of them decide that eating in the morning is not important and coffee prevents hunger. The other category grabs some croissant from the bakery on his way in a hurry. And I still don't get: Why?! Morning makes the whole day work, so I truly believe that if your morning starts good, the day will be even better. Wanna know the strongest reasons to eat in the morning? Check here.

Ingredients:

1 banana
1 egg
1/3 cup oat flakes
1 big apple
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp butter
vanilla ice cream (*optional)

Ground oat flakes into flour. Keep in mind that when choosing from a wide range of the oat flakes take whole wheat ones, as they contain more fiber and nutritional benefits for you body. It takes a little bit longer to cook them, but will definitely bring only the best to your body.

In a blender, combine the peeled banana, egg, oats.
Allow to blend until the mixture is as smooth as you want it and blended well.  Allow the batter to stand for 10-20 minutes until thickened slightly.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
Fry spoonfuls of the batter until golden brown on both sides.

Melt butter on the same pan. Wash and peel an apple. Cut into 10-12 pieces, fry from both sides with cinnamon.

Serve the pancakes with vanilla ice cream and enjoy the beautiful day.
