Lately, weekends = brancakes, and this morning I was determined to make a delectable batch after yesterday’s failure…
Let’s rewind… Yesterday morning we were out of eggs. Feeling adventurous I tried making a substitution. I’ve read various bloggers recipes for protein pancakes using Greek yogurt so I thought, heck why not?! Well, let me tell you, Greek yogurt is NOT a substitute for eggs, rather you need Greek yogurt AND eggs.
Back to the present… This morning we were short on oat bran. I may have slightly panicked [a little dramatic, sure] since yesterday’s substitution was an epic fail [paper-thin oat bran discs?], but this morning’s substitution was a winner…
Whole Wheat Brancakes
1/8 cup oat bran
1/8 cup whole wheat flour
1 whole egg OR 2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar [equivalent to 1 packet]
Water [to desired consistency]
I’m glad I followed through with the substitution because these ‘cakes were goof until the last bite…
If food can teach us lessons, I think I’ve learned… “If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.“
P.S. Check out this cool idea- recycle, reduce, reuse! Just hope they washed all of the ketchup out…
P.P.S. 7 DAYS [AKA ONLY ONE WEEK] TILL CHRISTMAS!!!
Question: Oat bran, whole wheat flour, pancake mix, white flour- what do you use for your ‘cakes?
