About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ Funky Monkey Pancakes in Honor of National Pancake Day

Farm day report tomorrow.


It has been preempted by National Pancake Day.


Did you know there was such a thing? And yesterday was it.


We feasted on Scrambled Tofu


and


Funky Monkey Pancakes.

1 Smashed ripe banana
1 1/2 TBSP baking powder
2 TBSP vegan sugar
2 TBSP nut butter
2 Cups non-dairy milk
1 Cup unbleached all purpose or whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 Cup oatmeal
Vegan Choc Chips...about 1/2 Cup

Smash banana with baking powder, it will get foamy, mix well, add sugar, nut butter. When well mixed add non-dairy milk. Stir in flour and oatmeal.




Heat griddle, spray with or melt non-dairy fat on surface. When ready pour 1/4 cup circles of batter onto griddle. When the the surface is full of air bubbles, flip over. Add a chocolate chip face, or polka dots. Eat. Makes about 16 pancakes.


These are not overly sweet and taste quite a bit like banana bread. To get a stronger peanut butter flavor, I'm going to add another TBSP of peanut butter next time and see if that does it. They are tasty as they are, but, of course, I'm going to tweak em.
