October is National Pretzel Month
I think you can put anything in a pancake. I mean, just look at the IHOP menu.
- cupcake pancakes
- double blueberry pancakes
- chocolate chip pancakes
- strawberry banana pancakes
- Mexican tres leches pancakes
- German chocolate pancakes
- vanilla spice pancakes
- New York cheesecake pancakes
…and that is just at IHOP. At the right restaurants, you can buy pancakes with apples, lemon and poppy seeds, cherries, peaches, pumpkin, and anything else you imagine. Pancakes are so versatile that you can include everything (except the kitchen sink).
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup mix-ins (I used pretzels, peanuts, raisins, and chocolate candies)
- Combine oat flour, yogurt, milk, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.
- Fold in your choice of “mix-ins.”
- Lightly spray a griddle with nonstick spray. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto the griddle. Let cook on one side until bubbles begin to form on the surface of the batter. Flip and continue to cook 2-3 minutes, until a spatula easily slides under the pancake. Transfer to a plate.
- Eat and enjoy!
P.S. I am linking up with Angie and her cohosts Antonia @ Zoale.com and Laurena @ Life Diet Health for Fiesta Friday.
On Saturdays, I share three simple things that brought me happiness during the week. These posts may grow or change as time passes. Please feel free to share your own simple joys in the comments section!
It’s been a while since I shared my weekly joys, not because my life has lacked joy but because my life has lacked time.
October 13-19, 2018
Hurricane Michael stole the electricity at my apartment on Thursday, October 11 at 5:00pm. After watching the Duke Energy website all day at work on Friday, I decided to stay with my parents until electricity was restored. I finally regained power on Sunday after 4:00 pm.
I guess this isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of an idea for a yummy snack, a proposal for a unique flavor combination, a suggestion for using a tasty nut butter.
July 26 is National Coffee Milkshake Day
My favorite thing about working at a coffee shop in college was making turtle frappes. I enjoyed decorating the clear cups with chocolate and caramel sauce and squirting mountains of whipped cream on top.
July is National Ice Cream Month
National Ice Cream Month might be my favorite month of all, and this Klondike Bar Cake is probably the best birthday cake I have ever made. Not only is it easy to make and extremely delicious, but it’s also versatile. You could use any Klondike bar + ice cream combination that you like!
July is National Black Bean Month!
Last week I warned you that this recipe includes a weird ingredient, but there are just some risks you have to take when celebrating National Black Bean Month.
Every Saturday I share three simple things that brought me happiness during the week. These posts may grow or change as time passes. Please feel free to share your own simple joys in the comments section!
1. I bought a popsicle mold…
…and I look forward to making homemade popsicles. Let me know if you have a good popsicle recipe!
2. Having a gym membership for rainy days.
(because it rained every day this week)
3. The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Poe.
It was by far the best story I read for class this week. Poe tends to be dark, but this story was fun!
