Say good morning with a warm and filling pancake breakfast. These flapjacks are the bread in a healthy and cheesy egg sandwich.

If you love a hearty and filling breakfast, this Pancake Breakfast Sandwich will be your new favorite daybreak feast. Starting your morning with a high protein and fiber-filled meal will fuel your day and help you stay full. Get started by grabbing a mixing bowl and combine whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, an egg, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla and margarine. Heat a skillet with nonstick spray on medium-high heat. Once it’s heated, pour your pancake batter into the skillet making four separate pancakes. Cook each cake for two to three minutes on each side until they are golden. Set your finished pancakes aside.

The next step is to create the sandwich filling. Start by beating two eggs in a small bowl. Grease the inside of two metal circle cookie cutters or two mason jar lids and place them onto a greased skillet. Pour a small amount of egg into each cookie cutter or lid. Once the egg is slightly cooked, pour the rest of the egg mixture evenly into each round. This step will prevent the raw eggs from seeping out of the metal round and into the rest of the pan. Place a lid on your skillet and continue cooking until the eggs are fully cooked. Remove the metal rounds from the eggs and place a slice of reduced fat cheddar cheese on each. Assemble your sandwich by placing a pancake on a plate, followed by your cheesy egg. Top with another pancake and serve warm.
