Lemon Berry Pancake Bars are an easy, healthy and delicious portable breakfast with only a few real ingredients! Also with a vegan and gluten-free option!
It’s no surprise that we are breakfast advocates. We both believe that breakfast should NEVER be missed, no matter how busy you are.
That’s why we have lot of on-the-go and make-ahead breakfast options here on Athletic Avocado to help those busy people that don’t have time to make a healthy breakfast because you know that being hangry is not a good way to start a work day.
One of the best, but arguably most time consuming breakfast options out there are pancakes. Yes they are pretty easy to make, but cooking them and flipping each one individually is not possible for a busy morning. That’s where the portable pancake idea came into play. Pancakes that are in bar form make it possible to eat pancakes for any day of the week. Sounds like a good idea right? Now, not only are these pancake bars super duper easy to make, but they are healthy too! You can use any boxed complete pancake mix that want, whether it be gluten-free, vegan, etc.
These Pancake Bars are:
Slightly doughy on the inside
Studded with fresh berries
Easily vegan and GF
Lemon Berry Pancake Bars
These pancake bars are super easy-to-make with a complete pancake mix and are a perfect portable on-the-go breakfast! They have a touch of lemon and are studded with a mixture of sweet berries. You can use any berries that you want but I used a triple combo of blueberries, cherries and strawberries! They are also sweet enough that there is no real need for syrup on top. Also with a vegan and gluten-free option!
- 1.5 cups complete pancake mix(can use a Gluten-free mix
- 1 egg/flax egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 2-4 tbsp maple syrup

- Fresh lemon zest of one lemon
