Addicted

So, I think I have a problem.

All I can think about are new pancake creations to try  :) That’s right, Katie – I have another one to add to the contest!

I dreamt this one up yesterday and decided to make it happen.

Who wants S’mores Pancakes?

I know I did this morning.

I made the same oatmeal pancake recipe (thanks to Kath) with:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch cinnamon…or a little more than a pinch.
  • 1/2 Tbsp graham cracker crumbs – the secret s’more ingredient

I cooked them in smaller “cakes” so I could make a stack again.

After they were cooked, I slathered each pancake with 1/2 Tbsp dark chocolate dreams peanut butter (using 1 Tbsp total), stacked them up and topped with some sliced banana and another small sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs. Really, just a pinch.

This breakfast made me wish I was sitting around a bonfire – please try this combination!

It was so comforting, even without having marshmallows. I’m sure it would be great with them, but I didn’t have any on hand and the banana flavor went amazingly well with the graham cracker/chocolate pb/cinnamon flavors. Great way to start any day of the week.

I also had a small dish of strawberries since we still have a good amount, plus a cup of milk

Make sure to get your guest post to me by July 15th if you’re interested! We’re still trying to figure out what to do about the trip – I’m hoping and praying that the situation will work itself out so we don’t have to make the decision, but I’ll guess we’ll see what happens in the next week and a half.

What would be YOUR dream pancakes?

    looks incredible! would you believe that I had written ON MY HAND to pick up eggs and baking powder when I went to the store…and forgot both. I am such a ditz this morning! I can’t wait to make my pancakes! Dream toppings remaining a secret in case I do actually make them for Katie’s competition ;)

    Wow.
    You are quite impressive with the mac-daddy pancake skills. There’s a “green” cafe over here that makes everything with local ingredients that was featuring blueberry pancake ice cream the other day…maybe you could do a pancake that tastes like ice cream :)

    Oh my goshhhhhh…those look so good right now. I want to eat my computer screen!

    My dream pancakes could easily be those smores ones–and I love Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes from a diner at the beach. Not healthy in the least, but so amazing. :)

    Haha, that’s not too bad of a problem! At least your taste buds will be happy!

    I’m not a big pancake eater, but my dream pancakes would be some really tasty ones that I didn’t have to make, haha.
