⅓ cup apple sauce
1 cup Super Oats simply pure blend
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
1 pinch of salt
coconut oil (to grease the pan)

 

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, milk, and apple sauce. In a separate bowl, mix together the Super Oats, baking powder, cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Scoop batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Cook until lightly brown around the edges and bubbly, flip and lightly brown the other side. Serve hot with fresh berries and maple syrup.

LGF PowerBalls

When she isn’t busy tending to her sprawling organic garden, caring for her family’s 15 chickens or upholding her title of mom-of-the year to three little ones, you can find our friend Carolyn in the kitchen of her 106-year old farmhouse curating healthy recipes from scratch. She has a knack for whipping up culinary masterpieces and her latest creation, LGF PowerBalls, is no exception. Combining Love Grown Foods’ bean-based cereal, Power O’s, with dark chocolate and a handful of other lovely ingredients, Carolyn originally developed PowerBalls as a better-for-you treat to serve at her daughter’s recent birthday party.
