Friday Morning Flow

Good morning and Happy Friday! This was my first week (ever!) as a full-time employee, so the weekend is very much anticipated. My job is going great, however I’m still getting used to that 40 hours thing! 😉

This morning consisted of an early morning yoga flow, followed by…

IMG_2511Blueberry Pancakes!

I’ve been stuck in an oatmeal/pb toast routine lately, so I was in the mood for something different today. I used one of my favorite go-to single serving pancake recipes. I love it because it’s easily customizable (apple? blueberry? pumpkin? easy!) and the nutritional profile is great. It’s basically the same as eating egg white oats.

Go-To Pancakes  makes 4-6 small pancakes

  • 1/2 cup oat flour*
  • 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (I added a tiny bit of Imitation Vanilla Butter & Nut flavor as well)
  • 1 Tbsp nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • cinnamon to taste
  • stevia to taste – I used about 1/3 packet
  • blueberries, banana, chopped apple, nuts, whatever fill-ins you like

Combine dry, then wet ingredients. The batter should be thin, but not runny.

Coat a pan or griddle in non-stick cooking spray or coconut oil. Cook on low to medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Be sure to watch them closely; they cook up pretty quickly!

*If you don’t have oat flour, you can make your own! Measure out the same amount of oats, then grind in a food processor or high-powered blender. My magic bullet woks just fine. : )

The finished product. Gone in <2 minutes 🙂

A lot of times, instead of maple syrup, I’ll make my own pancake topping. Typically it’s some variation of Greek yogurt + almond milk + stevia, but today I opted for a maple cinnamon peanut drizzle. Without really measuring anything out, I combined:

  • peanut flour
  • maple flavor
  • cinnamon
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4-5 drops vanilla stevia

Other exciting events in my life? I spent two hours last night assembling my coffee table. It was definitely a long process, but way easier than I thought it would be. I would say the apartment is 90% there, as far as comfort and functionality are concerned. I’m really happy with the way it’s coming together!

Talk about unnecessary (but totally awesome) purchases. Hello, baby succulent!

IMG_2505I’m obsessed! Something tells me I’m not too far off from spending $65 on a terrarium... eeeek.

Tell me-

  • What’s your go-to breakfast recipe?
  • Are you into the succulent/terrarium craze? I’m totally a sucker for ’em!

Have a great weekend everybody!
