Oh breakfast, if only it were socially acceptable to eat you all day every day.
I have been craving chocolate as of late (I blame Ashley and her decadent buckwheat bakes. Speaking of which, anyone know where I can find buckwheat? I want. No, I need) so this morning attempted to whip up a batch of chocolate soccakes.
Choccakes (chocolate socca pancakes, naturally) for one:
- 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
- 1/4-1/2 cup milk of choice (I used vanilla coconut!)
- 1/3 mashed banana
- 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
cooked pancake style on the stove top over medium heat
with berries and banana slices to boot!
This morning while I was uploading pictures from my camera I realized that I totally forgot to share with you some fabulous belated birthday gifts that I received from my family last weekend! I know you’ll appreciate them
From my dad…
a new lens! I’m in love. It’s super light weight and the pictures are really crisp! I think Allie has the same one and let’s be honest, she has some of the best pictures around blogworld. Hopefully this new lens can get me on her level! I haven’t played around with it *too* much (yet) but I shot this picture at home. Lovely, no?
From my mom…
Why didn’t I think of this? Normally I only eat 1/2 banana with breakfast and the 1/2 goes to waste (because I refuse to eat the edge that turns all mooshy brown. I’m such a fruit diva). This will totally come in handy.
From my sister… (aka, my fellow yoga lover)
But more on that later
I’m off to get my Wednesday started! I don’t have any classes today which means cleaning the apartment, catching up on homework, and running some unnecessary errands. Happy Hump Day, boos!
What’s the best birthday gift you can remember getting?
