Now there really is no excuse as to why it isn't done yet, I have had pretty much all summer to work on it. But I'll have you know I've been very busy... gym, soccer, camping, eating, visiting with friends/family, watching Ellen, watching the Today Show, etc.
Going back to work will certainly be a shock after this extremely relaxing summer. Eek only 11 more days and then school starts! So I had to put aside my food passion for a bit to focus on my other passion, school and teaching...
However, now it is on to Kelly Kapowski Pancakes. I had found the original recipe in Self magazine, and it was what Tiffani Amber Thiessen has for breakfast. I only ever think of her as Kelly from Saved By The Bell, hence the name for the pancakes. I first tried the original recipe, but I didn't love it. I thought the oats didn't really stick together. So I decided to tweek the recipe a bit. Lately, this is all I've been having for breakfast.
Sidenote: I went really crazy this morning and made the pancakes with blueberries and raspberries (not shown)... WOW!
3/4 cups of rolled oats (could even do slightly less)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Applesauce for on the side
1) Mix the first 4 ingredients together
2) Spray a small pan with Pam and place on medium heat.
3) Evenly spread the oat mixture in the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes a side.
|While waiting for the pancakes to cook, sip your favorite coffee. |
I prefer Dunkin' Decaf with Vanilla Soymilk...
4) Flip once (be careful of stray oats!) and cook on the other side for another 5-7 minutes
5) Serve with applesauce. I'm a "dipper" so I like the applesauce on the side. But to each eaters own!
