Super Granola Pancakes

Hello lovelies!
How is February treating everyone? Fabulous I hope!

I come bearing another super pancake recipe for all my pancake loving amigos out there! (Let’s be honest the majority of the world loves pancakes in some way.)

I had one of those mornings recently where I just couldn’t decide between a quick ‘shovel it in’ type of breakfast, or a very care taken meal. So I took the best of both worlds in both of those categories. That would be: granola and pancakes. Put them together and what do you get? Granola cakes!

You will need:
•1 cup flour
•1/4 cup instant oats (soaked in hot water, then water drained)
•1 teaspoon baking powder
•1 egg
•Milk (add until right consistency)
•A good hand full of crasins, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and any other scrumptious things you can think of. 🙂
•A dash of nutmeg and cinnamon
•a pinch of salt

Have a skillet or frying pan on medium heat, and coat with a splash of coconut oil. (Make sure that it isn’t so hot that the oil will smoke. Just hot enough to sizzle when water splashed on it.)

I will always start with a cup of milk to begin with, but add more later to get the batter to the right consistency.
Begin to mix your milk and your egg together. I always mix them in a measuring glass, but I have no idea if that is proper cooking etiquette or not 😂

Next in a separate bowl sift together all your dry ingredients. Sifting is not a necessary step, but it will make the batter more even, and chances of any lumps way less.

Once all the dry ingredients are mixed together you can pour in the wet mix slowly, stirring constantly to make sure it mixes evenly. Then add your quick oats. Once mixed this is where you have to work quickly to add your seeds and cranberries not stirring too much as you don’t want to over mix, and deactivate the baking soda.

In fact, a good tip would be to prep them ahead of time or have them in your dry ingredient bowl before mixing.

I always save a little of the nuts and seeds to sprinkle on top and create a lovely pattern.

Now you can drop your batter into the pan and voila! You’re cooking some wicked pancakes! Be sure to cook until lightly brown on each side and enjoy!

I also chose to have a tiny bit of mocha yoghurt on the side! 😜

As always thamk you for reading and I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday!

Another breaky bowl!

Once again I stared into my fridge with a zombie-like droop to my face early this a.m.  This morning was yet another of those “I’m so hungry, but also too lazy to really cook mornings”. So I whipped together another of my famous “Breaky Bowls”, as I mentioned first here!

I’m pretty much just sharing this because I am a bit of a food nerd and love the way fruit looks haha! 😀

The holidays have been approaching quicker, and I have been trying to stay healthy before the big splurge.

I chose a delicious blend of Kiwi and mandarin orange, along side whole wheat toast, vanilla Greek yogurt , and topped it all with blueberries and cinnamon!

Time to dig in! (Sorry if this is a bit boring, I’m just a bit of a food nerd :P)

I am happy to say that that meal kept me going through 3 hours of Christmas shopping! haha!
