Cashew & Oat Hotcakes

Cashew and Oat Hotcakes 

While doing the 21 day fix extreme one of the things that are not on our approved list of foods that I can have is pancakes. They really are not my thing but son loves them. Especially ones that look like Mickey Mouse. We had a 2 hour delay earlier this week so I dedicded to make these cashew and oat cakes for him. This was so much healtheir for us than a box of pancake mix! I was worried when he took a bite that he not be a fan but I totally tricked him :) Give it a try for your little ones and let me know if they approve!

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 dash of sea salt
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 large eggs
1 tbsp coconut oil melted
1 1/3 cup of water
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract

Place oats, cashews, salt and cinnamon in a food processor or blender. Pulse until coarsely ground
Add in egg, oil water and vanilla extract pulse until well blended
Batter will be thick but if it is as thick as paste add 2 - 3 tablespoons of water
Heat a medium nonstick skillet, lightly coated with spray or more coconut oil
Spoon aboout 1/4 cup batter into skillet for each pancake
Cook for 1 - 2 minutes or until bubbles form on top
Filp and cook for 30 seconds

Makes 10 servings - 2 hotcakes each

Serve - We topped with cashew butter and my son also added strawberries to his.
