In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat.
Pour ¼ cup of batter in the pan and repeat for as many pancakes as you can make.

Serve pancakes immediately with yogurt, maple syrup or tahini and honey.
Fruity, Nutty Breakfast Pocket
I love this recipe because it's both kid-friendly and ideal for adults on the go.
Take two pieces of whole wheat sourdough bread or gluten-free bread with no added preservatives.
Spread a tablespoon of organic nut butter (no sugar added) on each slice.
Chop a banana or take a handful of berries and sandwich between the nut-buttered slices.
Toast in the toaster oven for 3 minutes or fry in a skillet.
Apparently, this was Elvis Presley's favorite snack.
