No. 1 : Quick Recipe

Pancakes with a Secret!

  • 1 Cup Canned Cannellini Beans, Drained and Rinsed Well 
  • 1/2 Cup Regular Rolled Oats
  • 2 Large Eggs, *Room Temp
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Oat or Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Fine Sea Salt

Step One

In a blender or food processor, combine the beans and oatmeal. Process until combined. Add the eggs, honey and milk and process again until well blended.

Step Two

In another bowl, toss together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the bean mixture and stir with a fork until just blended – a few lumps are fine.

Step Three

Preheat a non-stick griddle or skillet. Drop by 1/4 cup full onto pan preheated on medium high heat. Cook for about 2 minutes for the first side. It will be ready to flip when the edges are set, and bubbles appear. Turn and cook the second side for about 1 minute. When done, White Bean Pancakes may be “browner’ in color than other pancakes. Serve with your choice of syrup or honey.

*Room Temperature Eggs are important when baking. They allow the fat in the egg to incorporate more easily into the batter. To take eggs from the fridge to room temp quickly, place them in a bowl of warm water on the countertop for about 15 minutes before using.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Good News! You can make these pancakes ahead of time – They hold great in the fridge. Just prepare, and let cool completely. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in the frig. When ready to serve, pop in a 350F oven for about 20-30 minutes to warm up.
