Sunny and I were having one of these mornings…
“Not another smoothie for breakfast…”
I love a good morning smoothie, but sometimes it gets repetitive… Sunny also loves morning smoothies as she inevitably gets a piece of the banana I throw in and bananas are her absolute favourite food on the planet. Yup – she’s adorable.
So I thought I would make pancakes. Delicious, fluffy pancakes. The only problem is that I have never successfully made pancakes in my life. Ever. And every time I try again, I think to myself that this will be the day I make perfect pancakes. I even found a super awesome recipe for from this past Healthy Vegan Fridays shared my one of my fav contributors, Rebecca. Strawberry pancakes!
So I set out by following the instructions exactly. Except I was out of buckwheat flour and had to substitute (as I was putting away my flours, I noticed an almost full bag of buckwheat flour *facepalm*). And I didn’t have strawberry protein powder, which I think would have been cool to use. However, my favourite part of the pancakes was the strawberry purée. All I did was throw a handful of strawberries in my food processor and whirred them up. Done!
Except my pancakes look nothing like hers. This picture is super embarrassing! They stuck to my pan and didn’t quite cook properly and came out looking very misshapen.
So I thought I’d take the opportunity to share my not as great cooking efforts. I can’t make pancakes. They *always* turn out like this. Sometimes they are completely inedible… and not even cooked. Ha. But despite these pancakes lacking some prettiness, they were SO GOOD!
Go check out the Wild Strawberry Protein Pancake recipe. Maybe you can make yours look prettier. Well, at least follow the instructions ;p
