Good morning! It’s humpday – are you excited?

So, Katie has issued a little pancake challenge and I decided I needed to participate.

I had never made oatmeal pancakes, so I decided to start by trying it out and adding some fun toppings.

Honestly, what could be better than Strawberry-Nutella Pancakes?


Not much.


This batch of pancakes was:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Since I wanted to make a little stack of pancakes, I split the mixture into 2 and cooked them in the pan. After cooking, I topped each pancake with:

  • 1/2 Tbsp Nutella (1 Tbsp total)
  • layer of sliced strawberries


It’s so strange eating oats in new ways when I’m used to just having them cooked in a bowl, but it was fun having healthier pancakes this morning.

Do you the think the nutella cancels out the goodness of the oats/fruit? I don’t  :)  I’m going to say that it just enhances it.

Are you going to do the pancake challenge? I already have another idea brewing…or two  ;)


Call for Guest Posts!

Although I’m not sure if our trip to Honduras is going to happen at the end of July like planned, I’m looking for some guest posts to have while I’m gone. Laptops will not be going with us, and while there are a few computers and internet at the hotel, we won’t be there very often and there’s usually a line to use the 2 computers.

If you’d like to do a guest post, put your post together in Word and send me that along with the pictures you’d like in the post and please have it to me by July 15th. And please send clear pictures! I want people to clearly see your awesome pics  :)

If our trip does get moved/cancelled due to the political happenings there right now, I’ll still post the guest posts over the next couple of months, so they won’t be wasted!

    pancakes sound great! I have been meaning to make some for a while- do you add liquid? I have only ever made batter with milk in them before but want to try oats as opposed to flour…and protein powder (in an attempt to make the stuff edible :P )

    That breakfast looks outstanding. I’ll have to give it a go with PB sometime (not a fan of nutella – can you believe it?)

    I’ll see if I can write one up… I am so backlogged on writing right now – but would love to! Any particular theme?
