Peanut Flour Pancakes

Recently I picked up Peanut Flour from Trader Joes. I’ve been excited to try it ever since. Finally this morning I made my highly anticipated Peanut Flour Pancakes.

IMG_1200 Recipe:

– 1/4c peanut flour

– 1/4c oats

– 1/2c egg beaters

– 1/4c almond milk

– 1/2 tsp baking soda, baking powder

– dash of salt, cinnamon, chia seeds

*I think this makes a pretty small serving, so next time I would probably use 1/2 a cup of flour and oats and increase the other ingredients accordingly.

I mixed it up in the blender, cooked it up in a pan and topped up with bananas, raspberries, almond butter and syrup. IMG_1217

Served with iced coffee and a few stolen bites of Ben’s eggs :)

I forgot how much I liked raspberries! Yum!IMG_1214

Yesterday Ben and I ventured to my mom’s for a visit. I was excited to see Roxy.IMG_0003

Ben was excited to see ripe avocados from my mom’s tree. He’s not the biggest fan of nut butter (I know, I can’t believe I fell in love with him) so this is one of the few healthy fats I can get in him. IMG_0002

He just cuts it in half, adds salt and eats with a spoon. I think he’s addicted. IMG_0001Before we left for my mom’s I had a big salad with tons of random toppings and TJ’s peanut dressing. I dunno this was kinda of like a second lunch, kinda of like a big snack…IMG_1197

Plus  some more Annie’s bunnies before giving the rest of the box away in hopes that I can control my cravings for sugary little cookies in the shape of rabbits without going through withdrawals.IMG_0005

My mom and I walked the dogs and then collaborated on dinner – fish, rice and salad.

No Saturday in September is complete without a trip to the local self serve frozen yogurt joint. The closest one to my mom’s is Blizzberry.

IMG_0011 I got a few different kinds of fro-yo and went to town on the toppings. I think it’s all about the toppings! IMG_0012

My little brother, Matt, went crazy with the toppings too. That’s how we roll in Pico.

Now I must get to studying. I have two tests this week and am still catching up from my missed week of school! I also hope to clean a bit today, this place is a mess! Like embarrassingly messy :(

    So how were the pancakes? Could you taste a difference with the peanut flour?
    Cleveland seriously needs to get on board with this self serve yogurt business. It’s really no fair.

    Good luck with all your work – I am also trying to catch up on missed reading from last week PLUS finish this week’s work…gah. So much for a weekend!

    Matt and I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen yesterday – I figured those were probably the messiest rooms of the apartment.

    Ben’s avocado looks amazing – I wish I could get avocados off a tree in my mom’s backyard!

    Oh I bought that peanut flour on a whim and have been looking for a way to use it. These look great! Plus the peanut flour is the only baking ingredient at my boyfriend’s apartment so i’m glad that the recipe is so simple!
