Let’s talk about food cravings – you know what you want, you’ve been thinking about it all day and you cannot wait to get home and make whatever you’re craving. We all have experienced that. For one reason or the other our bodies crave things. Well for me I was craving pancakes but not those ginormous ones but those dainty little ones. I think some folks call them “Silver Dollar” cakes. I was out all day running errands, Mr.Fantabulous was at band practice which meant when I got home I only had to make something for me. Now pancakes are pretty basic – flour, leavening, egg, sugar, milk/buttermilk and maybe some vanilla. Again these are all pretty much pantry staples… EXCEPT in my house on that particular day!
I got home only to go and get the flour out to see that my two, yes two containers that hold 25 pounds of flour were EMPTY! ANNNNNNNNNNNNND I was out of milk. Okay seriously this was not cool. Sure I thought about putting my shoes (and real pants) back on but that took effort so I needed to be creative.
So that’s where my craftiness came into play. I knew I could use regular old fashioned oats to make flour plus the addition of the protein powder would not only add a great boost to my diet but also help with the texture. To keep in on “Lori would dig this” side, I opted to leave out the sugar but add in a banana for natural sweetness. The egg was added as a binder. Now the dilemma was I didn’t have milk. BUT .. I did have International Delight Simply Pure Vanilla Coffee Creamer!
