This morning I woke up and was just not feeling so hot.
My body quickly reminds me I am no longer in my 20s.
The kids were starving, the hubs was wondering around the kitchen.
So I just grabbed a bunch of stuff I knew everyone would enjoy, tossed it all in a bowl and cooked it.
Lucky for them it all made sense.
We even got to use some of the Salted Buttermilk Carmel instead of syrup. BONUS!!!!
Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes
Makes about 8 average sized ones
- 1 cup pancake mix (I like trader joes multi grain)
- 2 pkgs (1.5 oz each) Maple Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tsp oil (veggie)
- Toss all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.
- Heat and butter pan/griddle. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter on and cook (until bubbles form). Flip and cook a bit more.
- Remove, stack and pour on syrup.
The other day, while I was wondering thru the fabulous-ness that is Costco (or as my family reforest to it the $100 club, because you cant get out of there with out spending $100)…my daughter saw the produce walk-in fridge area and the beautiful blueberries and strawberries they had.
She HAD to have them. She eats strawberries and blueberries daily.
And how do you say no to your kids regarding fruit….”NO, you cant have fruit.” Just don’t think I can say that.
So they made it into our cart.
What am I going to do with all these blueberries before they go bad. The strawberries, I’m not so worried about.
So while her and I dug into some of them, we only made a small dent.
I have been adding blueberries into everything. Brown Sugar Blueberry Mojito anyone?
We made Blueberry pancakes, Blueberry Applesauce Muffins (coming soon) and this……
I love this because it is easy and you can make early in the day and have it ready for evening/dessert/whenever I walk by.
Not to mention the fabulous smell that will fill your house.
This is wonderful with some ice cream.
You can serve it on a plate, like a civilized person….or, or, or….how I like to do it.
Take a large towel and wrap it around the crock pot, so you don’t burn yourself. Grab a spoon. Sit on the couch and dive in.
It has oatmeal so you need not feel guilt.

Ok, so I may just have a problem. I can not stop putting brownies into things….I just cant.
One of my all time favorite cookies is Oatmeal. Whether it be oatmeal chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin. I just love them.
So here is the newest member of the brownie addition family.
Then combine your butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add your eggs, and vanilla and pumpkin (the secret ingredient…shhhh don’t tell).
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- ¾ cup oatmeal
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 bag chocolate chips (12 oz)
- ½ cup cinnamon chips
- 1 box brownie mix, prepared according to package (additional ingredients are typically eggs, water and oil)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Prepare brownies according to package directions. Let cool and cut into 1 ½ inch to 2 inch squares.
- In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together.
- Add eggs, pumpkin and vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated.
- In a gallon size Ziploc bag combine dry ingredients (flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon). Shake it to mix it all up.
- Slowly incorporate flour mix into butter mix.
- Stir in chocolate chips and cinnamon chips.
- Place a large cookie scoopful of dough on a lined cookie sheet. Top with Brownie Square and give it a gentle smash.
- Add another large scoop on the top. Gently press and enclose brownie with dough. The dough is a bit sticky so beware. I didn’t completely en-robe my brownie. Just made it more of a sandwich.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from baking sheet. They may look a bit dough-ie but they are done. If you would like them a bit more done pop in for a few more min.
It has been unusually cold here in Tucson this time of year. So when I woke up the first thing I wanted (other than my coffee) was pancakes. I love me some pancakes.
Here is what I conjoured up….they are actually somewhat, kinda healthy…..kinda
Here is your line up….
Once you have your batter, butter your pre heated (I did mine at 300) griddle and pour about 1/3 cup of batter. Cook and flip and cook some more. You can add some chocolate chip to them just before you flip for something special.

- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- Preheat your griddle or pan (I preheated mine to 300)
- Using a fork or potato masher, smash up your bananas; until they become pasty but still chunky
- Add your honey, peanut butter, eggs, vanilla and milk and mix until the milk is incorporated.
- In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, oats and salt). Gently stir until combine.
- Add your wet banana mix to your dry flour mix and stir until fully incorporated. You may need to ad a bit more milk until desired consistency.
