Blueberry Pancakes w/ Blueberry Chia Sauce

Posted Apr 02 2011 5:28pm
Can you believe I haven't had coffee, raisins, or yogurt in 4 days? I'm still not feeling 100% back to normal. Low energy + no appetite. I have refrained from Web MDing my symptoms for my own sanity. 

This morning I did however wake up feeling better than yesterday. Maybe that's what 3 naps and 12 hours of sleep will do to yah. Plus, the weather is beyond beautiful here. 50 degrees and sunny. Spring is definitely in the air :)

I wasn't starving when I woke up like I normally am, but in the mood to cook? I figured some food for my belly would be a good idea so I crawled out of bed to test out a new recipe. 

Yah thats what my stomach said too..."get in my bellayyy!" My appetite magically reappeared about half way through my photo shoot. Thank the lord because this stack-o-pancakes was deeeelish.

Blueberry Pancakes w/ Blueberry Chia Sauce
-1/4C oat bran
-2 T spelt flour
-2 dashes of cinnamon
-pinch of salt
-1/2t baking soda
-1 large egg white
-1/4C blueberries
-1/4C almond milk

-method: mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. The consistency of your mixture should be similar to that of oatmeal. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat to medium/low heat. I made 4 small pancakes out of my batter, but 2 large ones will also work. Cook the pancake for about 3 minutes before flipping. After flipping, cook for additional 2 minutes. *Remember, keep your heat at medium/low, you want to make sure your oat bran cooks!

Not going to lie, I ended up spreading some peanut butter on top. It needed more toppings, but I didn't want to ruin my pictures :) I don't know what it is with me and toppings...the more the merrier! 
Anyways, as I said before, the weather is just gorgeous here in the cities. Yesterday I took the day off from working out again, but did venture out of the house with the sister for some fresh air. Dear seester: thank you for suggesting I take this walk, mother nature always seems to lift my spirits. 
in more ways than one..... 

I didn't even know I could jump that high...

Anyways, I'm thinking I'm going to take another nap and then make the sister get me some soup for dinner. Hopefully my sweet-tooth will return soon, I have lots of yogurt and fresh fruit that I would hate to see go bad.

Cross your fingies I wake up myself tomorrow! This girl has one heck of a week coming up!

Ciao bloggies
