Shake 'Em Up Pancakes

Shake 'Em Up Pancakes by Custom Taste
These pancakes are not only quick and easy to make but are also quick and easy to store. Making them in a container eliminates extra dishes to clean and you can get to enjoying them much quicker. They are light and fluffy as well as healthy. They are sweet enough for eat as a breakfast or dessert but savory enough to eat with beans or meat. Add some peanut butter to make a great and healthy after workout snack!

Mix together the flag* in the small bowl and let it gel for about 5 minutes
Dump in the flour and baking soda into the container followed by the milk, honey, flag and vinegar
Put on lid and give a vigorous shake until all the ingredient are combined
You may need to open the lid every once in awhile to let the baking soda and vinegar gas out

Once the mixture is fully mixed together put into the fridge for at least 10 minutes to rest
When the 10 minutes is up, put about 1/2 TBSP butter into the pan and let it melt
At the same time preheat your oven to the lowest possible setting
After your butter has melted, using the paper towel, spread it around and lay the paper towel to the side*

-Trust me on the resting thing. Your pancakes will cook more evenly and be fluffier.
-I suggest you use a vertical storage container rather than a horizontal one. I used a horizontal one and shaking proved to be a bit difficult. A vertical one would allow for the ingredients to be close together therefore being able to mix more easily.
-Using a storage container to mix the pancake batter in makes for less dishes to clean up afterwards as well as quick and easy storage.
-1 flag is 1 TBSP milled flax seed mixed with 3 TBSP warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes to gel.
- The pancakes will fluff up a lot once flipped over and do not take as much time as when you initially put them into the pan. So be careful not to burn them.
-Reuse the buttered paper towel after every batch to ensure that your pancakes do not stick to the skillet.
