Good afternoon lovelies!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far. The weather here in Tennessee was FANTASTIC yesterday and it looks like we’re gonna have another gorgeous day today! We had quite the storm roll in late last night, but I think it was just what we needed to level out the humidity. Low humidity in the South…now THAT’S an oxymoron!
I laid low and had a good “chill” day yesterday because I decided on my last run (Friday) that I was gonna set a new goal…
10 miles for Sunday!
Eh, sometimes a girl just has to have something to shoot for.
And guess what…
I did it!!
I was afraid I made a mistake when I didn’t end up getting out there until around 7:30am, but the weather was absolutely PERFECT…65-70 degrees, sun behind the clouds, light breeze in the air…plus, I discovered a new station to run to on Pandora:
Obviously, I was in some sort of recipe-creating daze because as I started throwing ingredients into a bowl, I suddenly realized I was out of milk. Luckily, I opened the fridge and found a good stand in:
And what a coincidence…my Chobani just happens to be PEACH flavored! 😉
Coconut-Peach Yogurt Pancakes
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: 8-10 minutes
Keywords: stovetop breakfast oat flour coconut flour greek yogurt peaches Pancake Sunday
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 1/3 cup oat flour (rolled oats ground in a food processor)
- 1 Tablespoon coconut flour (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 modified flax egg (1/2 Tablespoon flax + 1 1/2 Tablespoons water)
- 1 teaspoon coconut (or vanilla) extract
- 1 6oz container peach flavored Chobani yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons water ONLY if using coconut flour
1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
2. Combine flax and water for your flax egg and allow 2-3 minutes to set.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients to work out any clumps.
4. In a separate bowl, combine flax egg, vanilla extract, yogurt, and water
5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until flour is incorporated. Spoon batter onto skillet, forming 3 small-medium sized pancakes.
6. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side or until the edges of the cakes start to turn crisp (batter will not bubble).
7. Plate and layer with freshly diced peaches, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a little coconut cream (coconut flour + milk + sweetener).
Winner, winner, pancake
Hey, no one finished ahead of me, therefore I get a blue ribbon, right? We’ll just pretend that there were actually other people present at the time! 😉
But the REAL magic happened after my plate just happened to “bump into” my bottle of maple syrup!
Yep, best way to celebrate a new PDR!
Let me know when they start serving up pancakes after races…maybe then I’ll finally sign up for one! 😉
What was your last “victory”? How did you celebrate it?
Life is too short not to appreciate the little things…no matter how small, if it makes you well up with pride, do a “happy dance”, or whip up some celebratory pancakes, it deserves recognition!
