Thick and Hearty Pancakes
Hey guys! Hope your Sunday if off to a great start!
I woke up this morning and my stomach was growling…as usual :). And I decided that I wanted some pancakes. These things were thick, hearty, and delicious!
Thick and Hearty Pancakes
Makes 6 large pancakes
- 1 1/4 cup oats
- 1 1/4 cup light vanilla soy milk (or other non-dairy/dairy milk)
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk; let stand for 5 minutes
- Add egg and oil to oats; stir to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix until just blended. If the mix is too dry you may need to add a little water so that it can easily be spooned onto the skillet.
- Spoon out mixture onto hot skillet (you can make your pancakes however small or large you want!). Cook until golden brown. Flip and cook until the other side is golden. Note– these did not bubble on top like other pancakes so don’t use that as a sign for “flip readiness”.
- Serve with 100% maple syrup or any topping of your choice.
These pancakes were so tasty. They definitely satisfied my craving, and they are keeping me full which doesn’t usually happen all that easily! YUM 🙂
Yesterday afternoon I was verrrryyyy lazy. I literally sat on my bed for almost 3 hours. I read some blogs, played around on Pinterest, and stalked people on facebook (ps…like me!). Sometimes, doesn’t it just feel great to be completely lazy? It’s really refreshing!
Cooper got the lazy bug too. Actually he has it pretty much all the time, but he looked insanely cute while lounging on my bed.
Haha, I think he thought it was too bright in my room. Or maybe he was tired of me taking pics of him ;).
Last night I watched the movie Eat Pray Love with my mom.
I really enjoyed the movie! I love Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman anyone?) and I also loved the story in this. Although, sometimes when I’m watching a movie I find that I get distracted by the most random things ever- and those are what I take away from it. For example- in this movie, Julia’s character pets an elephant while she’s in India. This scene literally lasts for less than 20 seconds. Yet during it my mom said that elephants are considered to be good luck in India, and then I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Now I kinda want an elephant charm or something with an elephant on it for good luck. I mean, I do attend a university whose mascot is an elephant- so it wouldn’t be too strange right? Or is it back luck to get something just because it stands for good luck? Am I even making sense? Haha probably not, I apologize.
The other thing that got me side-tracked was the part when she is seeing a doctor of sorts in Bali and the woman says “You have not had sex in a long time. I can tell by your knees.” Umm…I wonder what kinds of things my knees say about me? 😉
And this quote reminded me of the one in The Proposal (with Ryan Reynolds…sex god) where Ramone says “You can tell she’s a good dancer by the way she drinks a soda pop.” I don’t typically drink soda pop…but I’m pretty sure that Ramone would say I’m a good dancer by the way I drink my wine :). And in case you forgot, here is what Ramone looks like-
Hope you have an awesome day!
Do you like pancakes? How do you like to make them?
Do you ever get distracted in movies by random things?
Are there any weird things that you can use to judge something about another person (ie drinking soda pop= dancer status)?
