buckwheat banana pancakes.

my husband is out of town this week for work, and usually when he's gone my dinners consist of a big huge plate of all the vegetables he doesn't like [that i don't cook when he's home]. but tonight i decided to treat myself to some pancakes for dinner, because let's be honest....breakfast for dinner is just the most wonderful thing. plus i've worn the same shirt two days in a row now and have been feeling entirely overwhelmed all week. so pancakes it is!

i used a little buckwheat flour with my wheat flour [i could have used all buckwheat flour, but it turns the pancakes grayish, and for some reason i have a hard time eating gray pancakes....?], added some banana slices right after pouring the batter, and topped it with some grade A maple syrup. it was delicious. now if only it could be friday already! <3

*moral of the story: breakfast for dinner will [temporarily] solve all your problems. :)

  10. Mmhmm, pancakes for dinner is medicine for the soul. have you tried buckwheat and rice flour? I haven't, but I'll give it a try and let you know. They might not be so fluffy, and cheerful still. I love the light on these! How did you light them at night, like that?

  19. Those look so delicious! You're good to be so healthy when husband is gone. I use that alone time as my time to binge on all the unhealthy food I don't want us eating as a "healthy couple." :)
