It just may be your lucky day. We’re taking a recovery break today and I’m avoiding showing you any random food pictures, talking about workouts or chatting marathon recaps to bring you another STUFT Silk PureAlmond recipe.
If you haven’t made the Cake Batter Cookie Dough Ice Cream yet by the way, you really need to.
This family friendly recipe today is really a winner. It not only will impress a crowd, but there’s a little Silk video to go along with it as well. Fabulous, yes?
I’ve been making our good old Hooligan Pancakes lately for some easy breakfasts. There’s just something about breakfasts that come right out of the oven on cold mornings. There’s also something about eating them while you’re still in your pajamas, not that we do that very often around here. Ha ha.
These pancakes are such an easy breakfast treat. I love that I can just whip them together in about 5 minutes and then put them in the oven. The boys love that they puff up like crazy while they’re cooking and because, well, they’re just darn delicious of course.
The other week I was craving some serious apple and cinnamon flavor so I thought I’d experiment a little with the original recipe. My little experiment turned out even better than I thought.
These had it all- warm apples, cinnamon, buttery taste and a hint of almond.
Um… yes, the boys and I finished off the entire recipe all by ourselves. I’m okay with that though because these pancakes are pretty darn healthy and we couldn’t save just one little square. Who does that?
I know I talk about Silk Pure Almond® Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk a lot. I can’t help it since I go through the stuff like no other. I use it in my daily lattes, café Americanos and mochas, but you can also sub it in for regular milk in pretty much any recipe. I do this on a regular basis also and I just might happen to know it does really well with microwave muffins. He he.
I used Silk Pure Almond® Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk in the recipe for these. By using almondmilk instead of 2% dairy milk that the boys usually drink, it saved 46 calories per serving.
I don’t like to be bossy, but really, you need to make these.
I’m telling you, the family will be impressed and if you’re anything like us, there won’t be any of these leftover. He he.
You can easily double the recipe to try to avoid that situation, but I’m not guaranteeing that will work though. These baked pancakes go quick.
Cinnamon Apple Hooligan Pancakes

¼ teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 medium apple, cut in small chunks

Here’s the nutritional information per serving if you serve only two people.

*Recipe note- If you use egg substitute instead of real eggs, you save 80 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving. You can also decrease the amount of light butter if you’re looking to save additional fat and calories.
I’m telling you, these will be a hit.
You know what else I’m telling you?
You really need to watch this short video about these hooligans here.
Yep, that’s right. I somehow made it on the Silk YouTube channel again. Woo hoo! Um, I’m not sure what I’m doing with my face in that picture though. I do know it looks like I may need to research some Botox. Ha ha. Seriously, that is not flattering. Oh well.
I guess it doesn’t really matter when these delicious pancakes are around.
I’m guessing it may have something to do with these little hooligans though.
Hmmm…… who wants some breakfast?
