Poppy Seeds Aren't Just For Muffins!

Hello fellow apron lovers! It's the Ungourmet, bringing you another fun and easy recipe. I love making pancakes for breakfast on the weekends but sometimes I get bored with the same old boring recipe. I decided my pancakes needed a little jazz and pizazz!!

Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes
adapted from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

Serves 4

1 large egg
1 1/3 cups almond milk (or soy milk)
1 tbsp lemon zest
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/4 cup canola oil
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix egg, milk, zest, lemon juice and oil in a medium bowl. Mix flour, almond meal, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until moistened. Using 1/4-1/2 measuring cup drop batter onto a lightly oiled griddle and cook until both sides are golden brown.

Serve with fresh berries and fresh whipping cream (I put a bit of honey and vanilla into my whipping cream.).

These pancakes were such a nice change from the ordinary!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
