Pumpkin pancakes

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes

What better way to kick off Thanksgiving week with pumpkin pancakes? I’m still in pumpkin mode (even though I prematurely decorated for Christmas because why not), so I see a few more weekends with this breakfast in my near future.

Pumpkin season still going strong for me.

I get major pancake cravings, but only treat myself to them every once in a while when we go out for breakfast because they can be super sugary and then I’m down for the count. Making them at home means 1. I get to stay in my PJs and 2. I can pick the ingredients! This healthier take on pancakes uses whole wheat flour and Mooala vanilla bean almond milk. If you’re over pumpkin season, you can adjust this batter recipe for whatever ingredients you like. Bananas, chocolate chips…you really can’t go wrong. Recipe adapted from Cookie + Kate. Mine turned out a liiiiitle bit crispier than hers (multitasking + pancaking).

Yellow Cake Baked Oatmeal

I’m a huge fan of oatmeal. It makes regular weekday breakfast appearances. So many, in fact, that I keep a few boxes at the office (if it’s at the office I’m committed). But this oatmeal is really raising the bar. It’s like a breakfast-dessert hybrid and I would eat it anytime, anywhere. This oatmeal has earned itself a spot in the weekend breakfast rotation.
