What’s for breakfast?

Perfect breakfast!So it is tradition that every morning Monday-Friday Andy makes me breakfast in bed! What a great tradition eh? He makes 1/2 Cup porridge with cinnamon, ground flax seed, and goji berries mixed in. 1/4 Cup low fat Greek Yogurt on top and some frozen berries. It really is the perfect breakfast! I could eat it all day long if I could 🙂 It keeps me going and fills me up with all the good healthy things that I need for the day. On Saturday Andy makes me a cooked breakfast with baked beans, eggs, veggies, and fruit. Sunday is my day 🙂 I usually make pancakes. I make many different sorts of pancakes but my two main types are my banana pancakes and my sweet potato pancakes.

Yummy baby banana pancakes!

Banana Pancakes (makes 10 little baby pancakes) :

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Egg
  • Dash of baking powder
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • Crushed Walnuts (optional)
    Mash it all up and make into tasty pancakes. I like to top mine with low fat Greek Yogurt.

Sweet Potato Pancakes (makes 3 big daddy pancakes)

  • 1 sweet potato mashed without skin (microwave potato for 6-8 minutes then scoop out insides and you have mashed sweet potato!)
  • 1/2 C. Oats
  • 1 Egg
  • Large dash of Baking Powder
  • Dash of Cinnamon (optional)
  • Crushed Walnuts (optional)
  • Milk
    Mash up all the ingredients and add milk until you have a desired consistency. I use 1/2 Cup measuring cup as a scoop and top mine with low fat Greek Yogurt and either jam or microwaved frozen berries. Andy goes a bit cray-cray and puts anything on it. He thinks they are either sweet or savory and tops them with Hummus, Quark, Cayenne, mustard, peanut butter, jam, horseradish, and anything else he can find. Today he chose peanut butter, quark, and cinnamon on two of them and hummus, cayenne, chili sauce on the other one. I love it! Cracks me up!  So that is the most wonderful start to a sunday morning.
