Interesting Alternative

I am rather addicted to having either oats or an oatmeal pancake in the mornings..
Now that I'm trying to keep my grain servings to 1-2 per day, I sometimes want to eat something non-oat in the morning. I read on Dr. Fuhrman's website about "lentil pancakes". I soaked 1/4 c raw lentils overnight, then rinsed and drained them in the morning. I whirled them in my food processor with a small banana (84g), 1 T ground flaxseed, 1/4 tsp champagne vinegar, and 1/4 tsp baking soda. Then I cooked it like a pancake. It actually tasted pretty good after I drizzled on some almond butter and some Crofter's Fruit Spread. Here's how it looked "naked".

Lentil Pancake = tasty!


  1. I just tried to make this and it fell apart. Do you have a link to the recipe?

  2. I just did what I wrote in the post -- that is the recipe. You have to be VERY patient when cooking it -- low heat for a long time so the inside will firm up. You could probably do it in the oven too, but I've not tried it.

  3. Just wanted to reply that I attempted this again. Thank you so much for your comment that helped it tremendously. The pancake came out really good and will be adding it as a staple to my diet.
