Guest Post: Oatmeal Almond Meal Pancakes
It is STILL cold out, and everyone is using that as an excuse for everything, including me as an excuse for not wanting to cook. But my dear friend Meghan is somehow immune and made these delicious-looking pancakes. Check it out:
Once again, New York City was pummeled with snow. I texted my roommate from the other room, saying that I was going to run out and get coffee before we were stuck inside all day, working from home.
It took her a few minutes to text back and I started thinking about what I was going to eat for breakfast (because let’s be honest, I’m always thinking about food). Paleo(ish) banana pancakes came to mind and I went straight to Google.
In the midst of my search, my roommate came out of her room and told me about her friend Natalie’s famed “Hello Day Cakes.
” We bundled up, braved the storm for eggs and coffee and when we returned, got to work.
Of course, by “work” I mean Tiffany went to work in the kitchen cooking these tasty guys up, and I had to hop on a conference call. When my call was over, I walked out into the kitchen to her delicious masterpiece.
So amazing, right!?
We switched up the recipe a bit, so here’s how we made them:
- 2 cup of oats
- ¼ cup of almond meal
- Dash of cinnamon, to taste
- About 1/4 cup of Hazelnut Milk (originally called for Almond Milk, but we didn’t have any)
- 3 (originally called for 2 eggs and ¼ cup of egg whites, but we just threw in an extra egg)
- 2 large bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla
From here, it’s easy. Throw everything into a blender (this helps the oats get all ground up). If the mixture is too thick, add a bit more milk.
Pour into a skillet! Flip after sides get firm and brown (2-3 minutes).
To top things off, we put frozen berries and my mother’s homemade berry jam into a small skillet and served over the pancakes once warm.
