Easy-Peasy Pancakes and Charlie’s Wild Night In

Most often, my breakfast is a smoothie, or a piece of toast if I’m feeling lazy. Every once in awhile though, I go all out and cook a pancake breakfast. This celestial occurance happened last weekend, and I have the pictures to prove it. The recipe is from How it all Vegan, it’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s delicious.

The batter is ridiculously easy: flour a banana, agave nectar, baking powder, almond milk, vanilla.

I had a few apples on hand, so I chopped 'em, drizzled 'em in a bit of demerara sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup, and baked 'em at 400 degrees for as long as it took me to make the pancakes (20 minutes maybe?)

The trick to a perfect pancake is the temperature. Not too hot, not too cold. I usually hover just below medium on my gas stove, watching closely.










Good enough to eat!Be generous with the apples and maple syrup.

Bon appetit!









And now I leave you with the incredible feat that our blessed dog Charlie pulled off on Saturday night. The determination it must’ve taken still boggles my mind. This is a reminder to foodies out there that taste really is relative. One man’s garbage is another, ahem, dog’s dessert.


If we had a dog house, Charlie would be sleeping there, silly puppy. Instead she is banished to the...couch. Please note that one cupboard door is completely ripped off, and the frame has been pulled away from the sink. We had tied the doors shut with a dishtowel, so our four-legged friend resorted to brute force. I'm hoping this has nothing to do with me recently switching her to a vegetarian dog food...

Happy Monday!

About Sarah Tombler

I live in Ottawa, Canada with my husband and our twins. I work for the Public Service, and I have been a vegetarian for 18 years. Over the years, I have started to understand that what we eat effects us, through mood, weight and positive thoughts. I am working towards cutting most animal products from my diet, in an attempt to live a life of compassion, and to do what I can to help this small planet of ours. I also love letting people know that the secret to happiness may be as simple as what we put in our bodies. View all posts by Sarah Tombler
