Oatmeal Pancakes the Loser Way
More snow and howling winds…
|God with a snowblower drives along top of a cloud, sending snow down... Robert Mankoff|
We got another 8-inches of snow yesterday. It’s snowing now, this morning, with another 1 to 3-inches in the forecast for today, and more predicted for tomorrow and Friday!
OK, enough already, snow and wind gods!
It’s a good morning for pancakes and this recipe intrigued from the minute I heard about it. I really like oatmeal and cottage cheese, but pancakes made with those ingredients ~ couldn’t imagine.
It was surprising! They were actually pretty tasty!
Of course, I put a pat of butter and drizzled a little syrup over the top. I don’t know if that’s “The Biggest Loser” way or not, but after all, they’re pancakes! And I’ll make them again!
By the way, you should seriously consider purchasing a Ninja Master Prep, if you don’t already own one. Over the years, I’ve bought more food processors than I care to mention, and very rarely use any of them.
Then, Bubba, my older son, gave me a Ninja one day, telling me I wouldn’t believe how great it is. He was so right! It's set of double blades allows it to evenly chop, mince, blend, dice, and puree in an instant, without turning food into mush, and crushes ice in a flash.
It’s powerful, just like a Ninja, easy to use and clean. It has a permanent spot on my kitchen counter, taking up little space, unlike any food processor I own. The Ninja Master Prep is now my favorite hassle-free kitchen gadget!*
