My hand mixer:

Affordable stove top pans (high quality too):

Combine all of your ingredients into either a food processor or blender. Process or blend everything together. Divide your mix into two bowls and then add in your Red Food Coloring to one of the bowls. Mix that bowl around. Take out a stove top pan, turn your burner on Medium Heat, and then coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. Pour your mix in and cook each side of your pancake for around 2:00-3:00. Mouthgasm!


  • Top them with some fat free whipped cream!
