Alright, I think I should officially start writing only about pancakes.
Transition my blog a little bit. What do you think?
Mm, maybe about breakfast in general. ‘Cause…coffee.
Nahhhh. I actually have a couple non-breakfast recipes coming at you some point soon, but for today’s purposes, it’s all about the pancakes, waffles and bagels.
Seriously, these are my top three favorite breakfast staples. I’ve decided. All I want are pancakes, waffles, and bagels.
And if you didn’t already hear, I now have a new – working – waffle maker!! The clouds have parted and finally let me into the world I belong.
Here’s a sampling of a few of the breakfasts from my past week.
Favorite waffle: cornbread. Cornbread waffles are so damn good.
I wanted to go a fancy sweet and savory route for a rare breakfast Dan and I got to spend together. I whipped up a homemade cranberry compote using frozen whole cranberries, maple syrup and vanilla. Sprinkled the waffles with goat cheese and plopped on a runny egg. The goat cheese cranberry combo was
… da bomb.
Then I made the same recipe again and tried it with the classic avocado egg combo. Total win. Obviously.
After I had had enough waffles (if that’s even possible) I somehow got the strongest craving for chocolate chip pancakes.
I made these guys because they looked all super fluffy, just like what I was craving. Unfortunately, they didn’t end up the fluffy version I was hoping for. More just dense and oatey. Still tasted fine, don’t get me wrong, and they definitely squashed my chocolate craving. Paired with peanut butter and banana you can’t really go too wrong.
….but next time, I kill that fluffy chocolate chip pancake craving.
Cheese bagels. To be honest I really prefer my cheese bagel with just plain butter, but I knew that wasn’t going to be enough protein for me and knew I needed something more, so I went with regular cream cheese. This time.
Okay, I strayed from my top three. I’ve had a really strong craving for classic, plain banana bread for a number of weeks now. So then, a cluster of brown nanners on my kitchen counter seemed to say this week was the week. I wanted plain… classic… nothing weird or fancy. So I chose this recipe. And then went ahead and used chickpea flour and gluten free flour instead…….
Doh. Will I ever be able to bake something “normal?” (in my defense – I really only did it so I could share with Dan who isn’t eating gluten right now. It’s my generosity…. that’s all).
Are you team butter or peanut butter when it comes to banana bread? I obviously couldn’t choose. They are both magic in their own way. So, both it was.
Ooooooh yes. And then there’s been the nutty cereal.
My dietician would like me to add 1/4 cup up nuts to my bowl of cereal and granola. At first I thought she was just that….nuts…. but by the second time I found myself picking away at more. Like ripping off a bandaid?
And there you have it.
Now go make some pancakes.
