Since I found out I was going to be stuck in D.C. for four days longer than expected, I’ve had a test of wills going on with myself to see if I could manage not going to the grocery store again before leaving. It’s been pretty intense. Case in point:
This morning, I ran out of bananas.
I know. DISASTER!!! How can I eat breakfast without a banana?!?!?!?!?
Okay, get a grip Anne, it will be okay. Let’s think seriously about this.
Cereal? Wait, I’m out of cereal. And cereal is not much fun without a sliced banana.
Oatmeal!?! Definitely needs a banana.
Crap. Ummm… what else do people eat for breakfast?
Eggs? I only have egg whites in a carton. That’s boring.
Wait… Pancakes!! Yesssssss Good thing I still had some blueberries and a tiny bit of milk hanging around!
Mmmmmmmmmm delish I basically just threw what was left in my fridge into them. They came out very tasty! Hearty, but with a nice soft texture
PB & J Blueberry Pancakes
(makes one large or two small pancakes)
- 1/3 C whole grain pancake mix
- 1/3 C skim milk (or non-dairy substitute)
- 2 T oats
- 1 T liquid egg whites
- 1 T unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tsp ground flaxseed (optional)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon… I’m all out!)
Told you it was random.
Toss all the ingredients (except the blueberries) in a bowl and mix.
Heat a nonstick pan (or use PAM) on medium heat and pour the batter into the pan. I just made one massive pancake
Once the batter is in the pan, sprinkle the blueberries on top. Heat a minute or two until you can flip it, then heat a minute or two on the other side.
Once it’s cooked, place on a plate and top with nut butter and jelly of choice I used Nuttzo and this awesome Strawberry Rhubarb jam from Williams Sonoma.
Yum I know what I’ll be making again tomorrow for breakfast!
What’s your favorite kind of pancake? I love anything with blueberries. Mmmm…
I’m off to get my hair cut in a bit! I was supposed to get it cut down in Tampa today, but obviously I am not there! I made a new appointment for here in the area… it’s so much more expensive here, but I REALLY need it cut!
Afterwards, I’m meeting up with a friend for a drink downtown. We’re also going to check out the White House decorations and the official Christmas Tree. Yay! Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to take some pics for my snow blog
Orlando girlies: so sad to miss you tonight!!! Have fun at Infusion Tea… get lots of tasty things in my honor
