Pancakes with Stuffed Omelette

Sundays call for brunch and brunch calls for eggs and pancakes. I decided to make black bean stuffed omelette and to go with it, some whole wheat pancakes served with fresh berries and banana. Its healthy and very satisfying and most of all easy to put together.

Whole Wheat Pancakes


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 Tbs sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
4 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp salt


Whisk all the wet ingredients starting with butter, eggs, buttermilk together. Mix the dry ingredients and add to the buttermilk mixture. Continue mixing until the batter comes together and let it rest for 5 min.
Place a non stick pan on medium heat or if using an electric griddle, set it at 350 F. Once the griddle is hot, rub with butter and wipe it up with a paper towel.
Pour 1 scoop of batter on to the griddle and cook until bubbles form, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for a minute.

Serve warm with maple syrup and some fresh berries.

Black Bean Stuffed Omelette:


2 eggs
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 can black beans, drained
1/2 small onion
1/2 green bell pepper
1 Tbs chunky salsa
1 tsp oregano
2 Tbs grated cheese
salt and freshly ground pepper


Heat oil in a pan and saute the chopped onions and bell peppers for 3-4 minutes. Season with oregano, salt, pepper and the salsa. Cook for another 2 minutes and set aside.

Whisk the eggs with some salt and pepper. Heat oil in a pan and cook 2 thin omeletes.

Fill the omeletes with the black bean mix. Top with some grated cheese and serve.

bon appetit !!!
