Frosty's come to town

It's one icy morning. Everything has a layer of frost on it. I think I will be hanging out in my pj's and letting it warm up a bit before venturing out this morning.

I enjoyed a perfect breakfast on such a day. I really love these oatmeal pancakes, they are delicious.

In the batter:
1/2 cup oats
2 TB. applesauce
2 TB. soymilk
dash Bob's cinnamon spice hot cereal (to thicken up the batter)
dash whole wheat pastry flour (also to thicken the batter)
dash salt, cinnamon, and baking soda
a few raisins
mix together and microwave for 30 sec.
stir and add to a non stick pan
cook on both sides

Topped with
almond flax nut butter (but of course)
warmed up applesauce with a dash of cinnamon
sprinkle of low fat almond vanilla granola
a few raisins

I never like following recipes and even measuring can be a little annoying. I usually do my cooking with a little experimenting and years of knowledge from cooking in the kitchen. I like to use recipes as an idea and as a base for measurements and ingredients.

In your own kitchen do you feel as though you are a free spirit or that you have to follow a recipe exactly?

  1. I'm usually a free spirit but I also like following recipes, then tweaking them to make it my own (or make it easier haha). Oatmeal pancakes sound awesome!
