The poll results are in! I must say, when I created the survey, I was nervous. I feared that nobody would respond, and it would remind me to be humble and that nobody actually reads my blog. Much to my delight, I got over 100 responses (the free service caps out at 100)!
So for you guys, I made these:
Here are the poll results:
I am delighted to see that the demand lies in the areas that I already dedicate most of my time to! This tells me that I’m already giving you exactly what you want.
However, I also noticed there was a slight interest in pancakes and waffles, which is something I have not done a lot of. For all of you who wanted some pancake and waffle recipes, this one’s for you! I don’t even LIKE pancakes that much, but I gobbled these suckers UP!
These pancakes are great because they are essentially just oatmeal thinned out and poured onto a griddle! In other words, they do not come accompanied by a stomach ache and a sugar crash. They are best topped with fresh fruit, jam, or peanut butter. Or, you know, maple syrup, but I don’t roll like that. I topped mine with a peanut butter glaze: a tablespoon of peanut butter + a tablespoon of almond milk, heated in the microwave for 20 seconds, and whisked together until smooth.
(Am I the only one that gets a gut ache from maple syrup? Please tell me I’m not the only one.)
What you'll need:
- 2/3 cup regular rolled oats
- 2/3 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 overripe banana
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- rounded 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- handful of chocolate chips
How to make it:
- Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender and blend until smooth. Add extra liquid if necessary (just a tsp or so at a time). It should have the consistency of paint. 🙂
- Heat a griddle pan over medium low heat.
- While you wait for the pan to warm up, stir the chocolate chips into your pancake batter.
- When griddle pan is ready, spray with nonstick cooking spray (it only needs a little bit!), and use a large spoon or a small scoop to pour pancakes onto the griddle. I made small pancakes, so I used a large soup spoon, and it worked perfectly. Generally, don't go any bigger than 1/4 a cup, but I find that too big still.
- When bubbles have formed at the top of the pancake, flip over and cook for another minute. Repeat until all the batter has been used!
