80--- Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Walnuts and Raisins

I realize that breakfast is all abound on my blog.  But it IS the most important meal of the day.  Forget your cinnamon roll and eat more fiber and healthy fats.

These pancakes, with oats, bran, walnuts and raisins, will fill you up so that you can make healthy decisions for the rest of the day.  And they taste spectacular.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Serves 3 (Makes ~6, 6" pancakes)

1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup wheat bran
1 egg
1 egg white
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
3 Tbsp raisins

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp sifted all-purpose flour

Place oats into a medium bowl and pour in almond milk.  Whisk in flours, bran, baking powder, honey, egg and egg white.  Fold in cinnamon, walnuts and raisins.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together drizzle ingredients.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat.  Spoon one ~3/4 cup batter onto skillet.  Use a spoon to drizzle cinnamon mixture over batter evenly (whatever design you like!), using ~1 Tbsp mixture.  Cook until batter begins to bubble, then use a thin spatula to gently flip over pancake.  Cook for ~3 minutes until cooked through.

Serve immediately!
