I cannot stay away from these oatmeal pancakes!
I can’t remember now why I bought ricotta this week, but I’m glad I did! I love using it on my breakfast cookies, so I thought I would try it out on the oatmeal pancakes.
I love how ricotta just makes you feel like you’re having some type of danish or cannoli. The cinnamon and vanilla in the pancake batter went really well with the ricotta, fruit, and honey on top.
The pancake batter was my usual:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- pinch salt
- pinch cinnamon
- couple drops of Honduran Vanilla
After cooking the pancakes, I put about 2 Tbsp of ricotta on each one, topped with some peach + raspberries and drizzled about a tsp of orange blossom honey on top.
Yup, this one will happen again. I love the honey + ricotta combination!
I also ate the rest of my peach on the side and had 2 big glasses of water.
Next Honduras post at lunch! I had to finish some stuff up after my computer turned off on me last night and erased part of it
How do you start off your day on a good note?
I try to have a big glass of water, no matter what, as soon as I’m up and out of the shower. I’ve found that if I don’t, it’s really hard for me to drink a lot of water during the day, but starting out with it makes me thirsty for it for the rest of the day.
I also listen to our favorite morning radio show and watch a little of the news to find out what the weather is going to be.
