I am very happy, wonderful readers, because I have a camera again! Borrowed one from my parents, and celebrated this event by having pumpkin pancakes for breakfast! And who doesn’t love a cute little stack of pancakes to brighten up their morning?
- 1/2 cup wholegrain spelt flour
- 1/4 cup milk (I used coconut)
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or mixed spice)
- 1 tsp baking powder
Spray a pan with EVOO spray (or just use oil) and heat it on medium/low. Mix dry ingredients together. Then stir together the wet separately (pumpkin+milk), and add to dry. Stir until a batter is formed. Then spoon (I used a tablespoon) onto the pan and cook for a couple of minutes until lightly browned, then flip and do the same for the other side. Makes 5 mini pancakes (serves 1). Add toppings and enjoy!
The batter is really quite thick, which results in quite thick, fluffy pancakes. Just how I like ‘em! I simply topped mine with agave nectar, but you can get really creative with your toppings. The possibilities are endless!
Cardio today was a five hour crazy shopping trip. Trust me, this was one hell of a workout! I succeeded in getting most presents and in severely depleting the savings in my bank account. But it was worth it! Lunch was had at Pret, and was a chunky houmous salad wrap.
…and have been perusing it for quite a while now! I can’t help it- I love recipe books!
I love Saturday nights! Partly because it is X Factor time, and partly because Saturday nights are Ready-Meal Night. Tonight I chose Innocent’s Indian Daal veg pot. Not only does this have 3 portions of veg in it, but it was suitable for vegetarians+vegans and has a whopping 34.6g of protein in it! Win!
How is your Christmas shopping going? I’ve got all the presents I need for my friends (thank goodness!), and am ordering the family’s online! And do you have certain food ‘nights’? As well as Ready-Meal Saturday, I have Quick-From-The-Freezer Friday, so two lazy nights in a row!
Hope you’re having a great weekend! Enjoy your Sunday
