It is a new year and I’m sure many of you have made resolutions to lose weight, get healthy, exercise, win the lottery. Sound familiar? Today I am starting the new year off with a recipe for some amazing Whole-Wheat Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. They are light and fluffy and healthy! And just look at that cream cheese syrup…YUM…..

You do not have to make the syrup, you can use regular maple syrup if you must. Let me tell you, it is worth it! You can make it as thick or as thin as you would like. The first time that I made these pancakes I had leftover cream cheese frosting from making actual cinnamon rolls. I spread it on top just like a cinnamon roll, then roll your pancake up and you have breakfast to go!

How to make Whole-Wheat Cinnamon Roll Pancakes:

Pour milk into a measuring cup. Add vinegar, stir and set aside.

Combine flours, flax seed, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together.

Add the “buttermilk”, egg, oil, and vanilla.

Whisk just until ingredients are combined.

Heat a nonstick skillet/griddle over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil to pan.

Add 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the skillet/griddle.

When pancake is covered with bubbles and the edges look cooked, sprinkle with brown sugar.

Flip pancake and cook until golden brown.

Serve with syrup.

Looking back at the recipes that I have posted so far I noticed a theme…..they are all comfort foods. They are old favorites, so it made it easier to start with them. Now that I am on a roll so to speak, it is time to get back to clean healthy meals. Don’t worry, we will not be sacrificing flavor! What’s the point of eating if you can’t enjoy it, Right?

Enjoy!!
