Yes, you read it right - I used avocado to make pancakes.
Avocados are very versatile and can be used for so much more than guacamole. Try these pancakes. I've included a few suggestions for substitutions to make them user-friendly with what you may already have in your pantry.

Serves:

10 pancakes

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

20 Min

Method:

Griddle

Ingredients

1
ripe avocado
2 Tbsp
orange juice
1/4 c
raw sugar
2
eggs, beaten
1/4 c
ground flax seed
1/4 c
raw oat bran
1 c
self-rising cornmeal or cornbread mix
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 c
milk or substitute (almond, soy, etc.)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mash the avocado well with the orange juice. Beat in the sugar and the eggs.
2
Combine the dry ingredients well. Stir into liquid ingredients.
3
Add milk in 3 parts, beating until pancake-batter consistency is reached. It may take more or less milk to get the consistency desired. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
4
Preheat a greased or nonstick griddle over medium heat. Cook griddle cakes (1/4 cup amount each) about 3-4 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. As batter may thicken on standing, add more milk as necessary.
5
NOTE: Self-rising flour may be used to replace all or part of the cornmeal if desired. Also, the addition of the flax and oat bran is my own personal preference for a healthy mix. You may substitute equal amounts of flour or cornmeal if desired.
6
We ate these with butter and maple syrup for breakfast. You could omit the cinnamon and replace it with chili powder, serving these as savory breads with chili or another Mexican-style dish.
