Easy, Wholesome, & Indulgent Pancakes

What you need: 

-1/4 cup 100% white whole wheat flour (I use Trader Joe's)

-1/4 cup Indulgent Trail Mix from Aldi's (contains dark and white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, almonds, peanuts, cashews, and cranberries)

-2 tablespoons dry rolled oats

-1 large banana

-1 tablespoon turbinado cane sugar

-2 tablespoons skim milk

-2 tablespoons chai tea

-Baking powder

-Cinnamon (to taste)

-Vanilla extract (to taste)

-Dash of salt

-1 tablespoon butter substitute to prevent sticking, and to flavor end product

-Smuckers sugar free pancake syrup (optional)

What you do: 

Combine flour, trail mix, oats, banana, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl.  Stir in milk and chai.  Mix well.  Grease skillet with butter or butter substitute, until non-stick mode is achieved.  Add heat.  Pour batter and shape evenly, to about a 1/3 inch thickness (note: smaller pancakes will be easier to flip).  For incredibly soft pancakes, flip as soon as it is possible to do so without it falling apart.  Remove from heat and add a small amount of butter to taste.  I sometimes dip in sugar-free Smuckers syrup, but this really isn't necessary as these pancakes are incredibly sweet and flavorful on their own.  Makes 3 medium sized pancakes; enough for two people or one very hungry person.  Entire recipe contains 549 calories.
