Our oven is back in business! Thank goodness I have such a handy hubby that can fix anything. Well, he is the one who actually broke the oven so it’s a good thing he fixed it! Ha!
The love nugget and I decided to stay home this morning and get some stuff done around the house. After a busy weekend and a busy start to our week I haven’t had much time to make him any food.
I started the morning off by making him some banana pancakes and me a chocolate covered cherry green smoothie that I adapted from Peas and Thank you. My new Vegan cookbook that I am loving!
Eggless Banana pancakes
1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour or whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup applesauce
1 medium mashed banana
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup of water
Sift together four, baking powder and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, banana, oil and water. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Drop 1/4 cup of mix into a greased pan and cook for a few minutes on each side. These puff up quiet a bit so after I flip them once, I press them down with the back of a spatula. Then flip them again.
To go with his pancakes, I decided to try out a little green smoothie for the love nugget.
Baby Green Smoothie
2-3 slices of frozen organic peaches
1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries
1/2 cup organic spinach
1 tbsp plain baby yogurt or greek yogurt
1/2 – 3/4 cup of water (the love nugget hasn’t had milk yet but if you’re little one has you can use that instead)
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If it’s too thick, add in a little more water/milk.
The love nugget was in heaven! Great way to get in some fruit and vegetables!
Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup chard, kale or spinach (today I used chard)
1 cup almond milk
Dash of Stevia
Blend all ingredients in a blender, enjoy!
Now that we’ve started our morning with a yummy, healthy breakfast, we’re off to cook away!
