They make a delicious and festive way to start the day off and to celebrate Christmas.
Not only are they simple to make they are also gluten-free and dairy-free, and filled with colorful fruit to provide a natural sweetness.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins

Equipment

  • Blender
  • Large Skillet

Ingredients
  

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 large ripe bananna
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • coconut oil
  • 3-4 strawberries, stems removed and halved
  • 8-10 blueberries
  • Dairy-free whipped cream (see note)

Instructions
 

  • For the pancakes: Add the eggs, banana, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Heat a large skillet on low-medium heat with coconut oil.
  • Pour the pancake batter into the skillet to make a pancake about 3-4 inches in diameter. Flip the pancake once it starts bubbling.
  • Cook the other side of the pancake until golden brown; about 3-5 minutes.
  • Place pancakes on individual plates.
  • For Sant's eyes, place 2 blueberries on each pancake.
  • Make the hat by placing strawberries as shown in the picture above.
  • Use the whipped cream to add the beard and the pom pom on top of the hat.
  • Add a strawberry for the nose, and blueberries for the mouth.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

You can buy dairy-free whipped cream such as coconut cream at most grocery stores. You can also make your own at home by whisking 1 (14 ounce) can of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream, 2 Tbsp. of powdered sugar, and ½ tsp. of vanilla extract together until thick. 
 
Tips to Make the Simple Santa Pancake:
  • You can make the pancakes ahead of time and either freeze extras for later, or store in the refrigerator for up to one week. 
  • Avoid adding the whipped cream until right before serving since it can melt. 
  • Get the children involved with making these by having them add the fruit, or topping off santa’s hat with whipped cream. 
  • Although oats are naturally gluten-free, they often come in contact with gluten-containing grains such as wheat, or barley. Make sure the oats you use say “certified gluten-free” on the package. I like Bob’s Red Mill brand or One Degree Organic Foods brand. 
 
Substitutions & Additions:
Looking to make this recipe egg-free?
You can substitute the eggs for flax eggs. For each egg combine one tablespoon of ground flaxseed with three tablespoons of water. Mix well and let sit for 5 minutes until it forms into a gel-like mixture. For this recipe you will need ¼ cup of flaxseed, and ¾ cup water.
Fruit substitutions:
You can swap the strawberries for fresh raspberries, the blueberries for chopped kiwi slices, or the whipped cream for banana slices. 
Add extra nutrients:
Incorporate extra fiber, protein and healthy fats with ½ Tbsp. of chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flax seeds into the pancake mix.
 
Enjoy this delicious and Christmas-inspired breakfast meal for the whole family!
