Switching It Up [Whole Wheat Salsacakes]

Posted Jan 16 2013 12:53pm

So today I thought I’d switch things up a bit…  How about a What I Wore Wednesday?!

What I wear when I wake up…  Fuzzy Shrek-like slippers, courtesy of Steve Madden.

What I wear to the gym…  Typically stretchy pants and a tank-top.  I received these yesterday from pv.body [my first pink package].

Who am I kidding, I can’t do a WIWW post!  I live in slippers and stretchy pants, regardless of whether it’s morning, noon, or night.  Unless I’m at work and then I manage to put on a dress or a skirt.  I commend all of y’all who can do fashion posts, but I’ll stick to sharing my Pinterest fashion finds ;)   Moving onto food…


Thanks to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting another tasty link-up!

Coffee is a morning must.

While Charlie oftentimes will choose chicken for breakfast…  I much prefer pancakes.

At first bite I wasn’t all that enthralled with almond butter, but after devouring this breakfast it may have redeemed itself.  Despite being the the crunchy variety, it’s still super creamy and makes for a perfect coating all over the pancakes.

I used this recipe but added strawberry preserves into the mix.

Snacky style lunches are my favorite.  They take little effort to put together at the crack of dawn and they allow me to have a little bite of everything- crispy and crunchy, savory and sweet.  Side note: I heart VitaTops but VitaCakes are itty-bitty and gone in 2-bites, which leaves me wanting more.

Fresh fruit and veggies, yogurt, a turkey sandwich, crackers, and a mini VitaCake .

I’m not entirely sure what to call this, but by the time I ate it as my afternoon snack all of the cereal had absorbed the milk-yogurt mixture and it reminded me of bread pudding…  Berry Good Cereal Pudding?!

As if my pancake obsession couldn’t get any more predictable, brinner was what was for dinner.  But this time I switched things up and made my first batch of salsacakes, inspired by this girl’s comment on my breakfast pancake picture posted on Instagram .  I was blown away with how tasty they were and cannot wait to try making more savory styles in the future!

Whole Wheat Salsacakes

¼ cup oats

¼ cup white whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs [or ½ cup egg whites]

2 tbsp- ¼ cup water

a spoonful of salsa

*use less water for thicker pancakes, more water for thinner pancakes*

Directions

1.  In a bowl, add all of the ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth.  Note: I add the dry ingredients first, then the wet ingredients.

2.  Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat.

3.  For each pancake, spoon 2 generous tablespoons of batter into the pan.  Cook each pancake until a few bubbles form and burst, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.

4.  Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 more minutes.

5.  Serve the stack of ‘cakes with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

And as always, I have to end the day on a sweet note.

P.S. Since I had a double dose of pancakes yesterday, I switched things up this morning and tried my hand at stuffed french toast.  One word: heavenly!

Question:  What’s the tastiest thing you’ve eaten lately?

Question:  What type of clothes do you tend to wear?  Comfy and casual, simple and stretchy for me!
