Sunday Sunday, so good to me… (to the tune of Mamas + Papas “Monday, Monday”)
FYI: I <3 Sundays.
Maybe it’s because I have time to whip up the best breakfasts ever, like this one…
But before we get into that deliciousness, let’s do a quick recap of Saturday. Trust it will be quick – there are no food pics involved! I only took pictures of these things…
(1) Weirdos rolling around in the dirt.
(2) First-time voters.
(3) Explorers charting untouched territory; and
In other words, my aunt, uncle and cousins were in town for a wedding. Since these two darling young kiddos did not go, my other cousin and I happily brought them to the children’s museum. I may or may not have had just as much fun as they did.
I also had my first workout since the marathon: a 75-minute Hatha Yoga class. Needless to say, I am a bit sore today, but it felt SO GOOD to stretch out my body and get a little winded.
Enough of Saturday. It’s Sunday, which means the invention of Sweet Potato Apple Cider Oatmeal Pancakes!
Just one of the bazillion gajillion reasons I love Target.
Then I realized I had just a bit of sweet potato puree left. Between these two items, this beauty was conceived:
Sweet Potato Apple Cider Oatmeal Pancakes
1 cup oats
1 (6-oz.) container Archer Farms Apple Cider yogurt
1/3 cup sweet potato puree
1 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 cup whole wheat flour (I only had white flour on-hand)
lots of cinnamon (I never measure cinnamon – I just douse everything with it)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 small (or 1 large) apple, diced
1/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tbsp. agave
Mix the first three ingredients together until well-blended. Then add the egg, oil, flour, cinnamon and baking soda.
Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. Cook each side for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. In the words of Polly, “Scoop onto HOT griddle, flip, smoosh, brown.”
While the pancakes are cooking, put the diced apple, sugar, agave and a couple more dashes of cinnamon in a bowl. Heat for 1 minute. Stir. Then heat an additional minute.
To serve, put the pancakes on a plate, top with Mighty Maple PB, scoop some apple mixture love over the top and devour the deliciousness of Fall!
Makes 6 pancakes (2 servings)
But, wait! There’s more!
