I took the BEST PANCAKE RECIPE EVER and altered it to make it richer with Greek yogurt and snazzier with cacao nibs and cherries.
This fairly easy recipe was originally a vegan one, it works well with a variety of non-vegan replacements for soymilk. If you're into that sort of thing.
Great with sauteed lemon-garlic spinach and a couple of fried eggs!
Adapted this recipe from Food.com, which I've done a number of times, only this time with (bramp-buh-buh-bramp-buh-brammm!*) BUTTERMILK! Instead of almond milk, and without the sugar. And scallions.

I've been experimenting with the oatmeal elements for a few months, and hit upon a combination that has a nice tangy-ness to it. I've also added apples and cinnamon to go the more pie-oriented route.
Polenta can be made more grits-like with the simple addition of greek yogurt. Throw a slice of prosciuoot on there under a poached egg, whip up a quick dressing of lime, ginger, cayenne, honey and peanut oil for some greens and brek gets classy quick.
I've recently been thinking about banana substitutions in baked goods and smoothies, and have had some success with squash and pumpkin. So I thought, why not in a smoothie?
The evolution of the breakfast cookie. Original recipe from the blog With Peanut Butter On Top, this adaptation came from the need to use up three frozen bananas to make more space in the freezer. It's gluten-free and almost sugar-free and really accomplishes the job of a snack - which is keep you from getting hangry for hours. Seriously, one of these was my lunch yesterday - it's packed!
A vegan alternative to yogurt and granola! With banana, avocado, raw almonds soaked in water overnight, coconut oil, coconut flakes, hibiscus powder, honey/maple syrup, granola, raspberries, chocolate chips.
More experimentation with rice flour - with great results! I followed this recipe for rice pancakes, but left out the sugar and used coconut oil for the oil. Next time I want to add scallions to the batter.
Made this recipe for Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies from the blog With Peanut Butter on Top. Cookie shown was made with chocolate, dried cranberries and minced ginger. The recipe is also good with walnuts and flax seeds. The variation I made isn’t super sweet, which seems like an ok thing for breakfast cookie to be.
- 2 ripe bananas mashed
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tbsp. golden flax meal
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup pastry flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2-3 oz chopped dark chocolate (70%)
- handful of chopped walnuts
Melt butter and sugar together in a pan, then add bananas, water and vanilla. Cook until sufficiently gooey.
The ways that beer bread makes life better are many. For this one I used a super crazy carmelized french toast recipe from Epicurious, but first made beer bread from scratch. I figure if you’re going to pig out, pig the eff out.
Egg and cheese on a Portuguese sweet roll: prosciutto, hot pepper, lemon mint, basil, parsley, garlic scapes, cheddar.
