Not Your Ordinary Pancake

Gooood morning sunshines!

I hope you all had a great night!  I had a pretty good one, though nothing too crayzay went down.  I don’t have a lot of time to write this, so I’m just going to throw up a bunch of pics and hope for the best :).

My good friend Dawn (who I mentioned yesterday, recently engaged!) came over and we chatted for a while and got caught up before heading out to the bar.

Here is another pic of the lovebirds for you, because I think it’s funny.

Two peas in a pod.

And here is a pic of Dawn and I just before we left, though it is not funny.

I was excited to see her! 😀

Ando also came along for the ride…

And we met up with our good friend Joel and some of his friends.

And I saw a former coworker who I used to work with at Chapters (like Barnes and Noble, Canadian edition.  I worked there for about four years while in school and LOVED it there!)

When in doubt, throw up a peace sign.  Or a million pictures of yourself…

And we made some new friends as well…

Like with the bouncer.  Good times.

It was a decent night, and we were home by 11:30.  11:30?!  What is wrong with us?  I guess this is what happens when you get old.  Yowza.  I was grateful for the early night though.

This morning I thought I would be a nice girlfriend and let Alejandrew sleep in while I made us a big breakfast.  We only had one egg, and we’re out of bread, so not a lot of options were happening in our kitchen, so I thought pancakes would be the best way to go.

But I didn’t want ordinary pancakes…I wanted oatmeal pancakes!

I saw a recipe on Julie’s blog not too long ago for oatmeal pancakes that looked intriguing, and I had all the ingredients for it so I thought I’d give it a go.

Amazing.  Delicious, yet wholesome and healthy!  This recipe was a winner.  Different from your ordinary pancakes, and so, so good.  It tasted almost like banana bread, without the bananas.  I made it into my favourite combo by topping my pancakes with a smear of peanut butter, half of a sliced banana, and syrup, and dug in.

I foodgasm’d my way through this entire meal.

Here is the recipe, I followed Julie’s exactly, except I used whole wheat flour:

Oatmeal Pancakes

Serves 2 – 3


  • 1/2 c. + 1/3 c. all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. oatmeal, cooked
  • 1/4 c. raw oats
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 large egg


Whisk the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon) together in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk the butter, milk, cooked oatmeal, raw oats, honey and egg together until thoroughly combined. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Cook pancakes on a hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray for 2 –3 minutes on one side before flipping and cooking the other side.

Top with whatever’s clever and EAT!!!!

We are off to hit up Ando’s parents for the day.  Have a good one!

  4. Hmmm. Oatmeal pancakes. Sounds awesome but I never have oatmeal at home. I will just have to stick with the real thing. Though the thought of having time to make anything more than a bowl of cereal, a sandwich or a phone call for takeout is beyond me.
