Welcome to Thursday! One day closer to the weekend.
I dreamed up these pancakes last night, and (thankfully) they’re as good as I thought they would be!
I made another batch of oatmeal pancakes this morning, but added in a few new ingredients to make them Cinnamon Mocha Pancakes.
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp instant coffee powder
- pinch salt
I completely forgot to add the baking powder this morning, so they weren’t as “puffy” as normal, but the flavors were great together.
I topped the pancakes with some ricotta and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Check out how red those strawberries are! Each one is perfect. I bought a pound of local berries at lunch yesterday and they were worth the $4.50. The ones in the grocery store may only be $1.50, but they’re not perfectly ripe OR red. I’d rather spend a bit more and have berries that actually taste like strawberries.
I’m also having coffee in my winter mug – kind of hoping it will cool me down a bit in the house :) The AC people are coming to fix it today!
Coffee in my mug, coffee in my pancakes. A good way to start the day :)
What’s your favorite pancake filling / topping?
