Now about the amazing trip coming up! My family and I will be going to Greece for a week, Finland for a week, Denmark for about five days, and then to Iceland for a day! We'll be home for a bit and then my brother and I are off to Newfoundland with my grandparents! Am I excited? Let's just go with "yes" since there's no way I can capture my true excitement in words. You would have to come to my house and see me bouncing off the walls to know what I mean. ;) And what am I most excited for? The chance to try real Greek yogurt! ;) You know I love the stuff in the store to death, but I'm assuming it doesn't taste nearly as good as the real thing. Can anyone back me up on this?
Even though the last month has been crazy with school, I made sure I had time for a bit of cooking (some how, that's something I always have time for. ;)
In attempt to make this post at least somewhat organized, I'll start with a recipe and then show all the random foodie pictures (versus a random recipe in the middle of random pictures...)
So an explanation on the name of the recipe. I was going to call them "cake batter pancakes." Then I thought that that would make no sense since they're cooked and thus are not batter. Recalling what they tasted like, I decided that they most accurately tasted like cake. Pancakes. No really? ;) But "pancakes" was just a bit to boring, and so I took the wordy approach and decided to call them "Mini Cakes Cooked on a Griddle." Or, you could just call them pancakes.
Mini Cakes Cooked on a Grill With Peanut Butter Fauxting
1/4 cup brown rice flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons wheat germ (sub extra brown rice flour or oat bran to make these gluten free)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
13 grams (more or less as desired) cake mix (I used a gluten free, chocolate variety)
About 1/2 cup (more or less depending on how thick you like your pancakes) almond milk
2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
A handful of sprinkles, optional (I didn't add any but would next time)
Peanut butter + stevia (or other sweetener) + water
Gather your ingredients!
Now, time for the randomness...
While we're in the category of amazing, have you tried Olivia's Hummus Pizza yet? I've raved about it before, and here I am raving about it again. That just goes to show you how truly amazing it is. It's even amazing when topped with sun-dried tomatoes!
And while you're at it, make yourself some of Olivia's Tahini Chocolate Chips Oatmeal. I'm telling you, that girl needs to write a cookbook!
Ahhh, it's so good to be back blogging again! This was what I looked like when I was too busy to blog:
Sometimes I think we should switch back to black and white photography. It's way more fun! Anyone agree?
All right, enough of my babbling, I want to know about you! Do you have any summer plans?
