Nova's Pancakes

Nova is my son, he loves anything made of starch, when Eggo had their disaster last year I decided that something he eats every single day, should not come out of a box, but instead be crafted from scratch by his mommy.

These pancakes are very easy to make, come out delicious and are very low in fat..

You will need:

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups non-fat milk
2 tsp vanilla powder (can be bought at Ikea or substitute with 1 tsp alcohol free vanilla essence)

Dump everything into a bowl and whisk only to combine ingredients, maybe 30 seconds. Split batter into two batches and add nuts, berries, chocolate chip, or whatever you please to the second batch. Use a 1/8 cup or similar to measure out the batter for each pancake and fry on a non-stick pan with NO butter or oil used for cooking - they come out much better this way.

These pancakes freeze beautifully and can be reheated in a toaster-oven in 4 minutes from frozen.
