Pancake Replacement

by Brittany on October 10, 2011

Happy Monday!

Catching up from this weekend? Check out:

Today was one for the books—I woke up, and was not craving turkey bacon.

Now, I’m not saying that I wont be craving it for lunch or dinner, but all I could think about was indulging in something made with pumpkin and oats. Pumpkin oatmeal was the first thought to cross my mind, but then I chose to think outside of the box and reach into my recipe archive for an oldie but goodie.

Say hello to my Vegan Wheat-free Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancake:


I changed up the recipe a little bit because I was using Coach’s Oats instead of regular quick Quaker oats. The 1/2 cup of oats was replaced with 1/3 cup, and the almond milk was cut down to 1/4 cup too. I also threw some Stevia into the mix for some bonus sweetness.


As far as the topping, I went with my usual banana-sauce technique: I mushed 1/2 a banana into a bowl, added about 1/4 cup of water, microwaved it for about 45 seconds, then stirred the whole mixture together.


The final product:


I’m sure my turkey bacon will be pleased to know that it’s replacement was just as delicious :D

In other news, I informed Will that we would be switching mugs. I love my Mike mug, but Tigger has been calling my name from the cupboard for the past couple mornings.


Plus I think Tigger is just a wee bit cuter. (Sorry Mike)

Alright, I have a bowling midterm to study for. How ever will I pass!?

Your breakfast looks delicious! I’ve never made “banana sauce” before but it sounds like a great pancake topping! I’ll have to try it sometime!

What?! No turkey bacon? I thought we would never see the day. ;) the banana sauce for your pancake is so clever. It looks like a better (and healthier) replacement for syrup! Good luck on your bowling midterm!

Your breakfast looks delightful! I am really digging the banana sauce – I might just have to try that on some Kellogg’s Eggo FiberPlus(R) buttermilk waffles later this week.
