Saturday Soul Food

Woke up to a horribly wet Saturday morning and went out for breakfast with my wonderful boyfriend (if going out in the pouring rain with me for my craze of puff pastry doesn't make him wonderful, I don't know what will), I remembered I wanted to write down a recipe.
I'm a big fan of everything sweet, having more than once passed on real food for some sort of diabetic inducing concoction that made my day. Since me and, I imagine, half the female population on the globe are constantly on a diet, either for looks of for spirit, for themselves, their boyfriends, that perfect LBD that just won't fit you anymore...anyway, I am always on the lookout for something delicious yet healthy to eat in the morning.
And no, I am not talking about the crazy "organic chia seed-golden flax seed-Peruvian cow milk-freshly picked by the hands of innocent children berries" kind of recipes that make me go....WTF??!!!
I sometimes wonder if the people who write the impossible to follow "do-it-yourself" recipes live on Earth or on a far away planet, maybe the newly discovered Kepler-22b, where every crazy ingredient that pops into their green recipes is conveniently stocked and easily purchasable at their local supermarket.
So what I normally do is find a good recipe and change the crazy, difficult to find ingredients in stuff I know I'll always have around the house. After all, I have a job and I live on Earth.
So here goes nothing.

Morning dash pancakes
  • 250-300 g/8-9 oz of oat flakes
  • 200 ml/ 7 oz of soy milk (rice milk, almond milk-all of them are just as good)
  • 2 small eggs ( I have three chickens in my garden so I get organic eggs free, but just about any    organic eggs will do)
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon (I use the normal, supermarket type, but if you have whole cinnamon, ground it and use, I'm sure it's going to make these pancakes taste awesome)
1. Put the oat flakes and cinnamon into a blender and mix. 
2. After a minute or so, add the soy milk and eggs.
3. Heat a small pan with a drop (a drop!) of olive oil. (I prefer olive oil to any other possible oil or spray because it adds flavour and is so much healthier)
4. Pour some of your mix into the pan. It should be 2-3 cm/1 inch thick. Wait for bubbles to form on top and flip it!
5.Wait 1 more minute for the other side.

Finito! You're ready to put jam, fruit or maple syrup on top of your pancakes. This batter will give you about 6-7 pancakes depending on your pan. Make sure your partner is in it with you!

The whole preparing, creating and eating time is under 20 minutes. 

Hope you enjoy it!

Kiss and Peace
