Even Mr. Herc is freaked my banana-less-ness. I think I going to lose my mind! Okay, maybe not literally but having a banana would be like someone having their morning coffee. You just have to have it!
Grr… I had to settle for an apple today. But then I remembered I had bookmarked Chocolate Covered Katie’s Hot Apple Pie Pancakes. The reason was because I wanted to have a pancake recipe I could make without eggs. I’m always using so many eggs and I love protein pancakes, but I hate whipping out the blender every single time.
The result? This vegan pancake was delicious and totally hit the spot. It kept me full for quite sometime. Here are the slight changes I made; I used 1/4 cup of Bisquick Gluten-Free (and didn’t add the salt or baking powder). I used 1/4 cup of rolled oats and added 1/2 cup of milk.
Instead of adding the apple to the batter, I sliced them, drizzled them with maple syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon. I then microwaved them for two minutes and pressed some onto the pancake after I poured the batter into the pan. I then used the remaining slices as topping and drizzled with a little more maple syrup.
Perhaps it was meant to be that I had no banana ready because who knows when I would have tried out this recipe. I’m definitely going to be using it and adding it to my rotation for sure. See? Exactly what I said I wanted to do yesterday.
I also made something quite interesting for one of my meals this week. It’s an old recipe made a little new. All you need to know for now is tofu is involved in a way to disguise that it’s there. I know, it makes no sense. Don’t worry, I’ll explain it tomorrow.
Here is today’s meal recap for the challenge. Check out dessert! Another serving of CCK’s vanilla ice milk, but I decided to go for the peanut butter one. I used soy nut butter instead and for the sweetener I added 1 tsp of pure maple syrup. All I can say is I had a delicious end to my day.
Oh and my mom did too. I made her dessert tonight and she loved it! She approves highly of the Chocolate Chocolate-Chip “Ice Cream.” And she is oh so hard to please. That says a lot!
