Oatmeal Pancakes

Two of my favorite breakfast options merge into a morning bliss with this recipe that incorporates oatmeal into pancakes. And using a package of Modern Oats Vermont maple oatmeal just makes it all the more simpler, quicker and flavorful. I love that it adds pumpkin seed, sunflower seeds and chia seeds which up the protein content and introduces a much needed texture into the fluffy pancakes.

While I always promote home cooking, I am totally for wholesome, high quality products that make like in the kitchen easier. Modern oats is definitely one of them. Having their oatmeals at the ready have been a lifesaver in many occasions, on days when I had to have a rush start on my day but still needed my warming breakfast, and of course when I am on travel. Checkout their line of oatmeals here, I am sure you will find several flavor combinations that will appeal to you. The recipe below uses the Vermont maple flavor, but feel free to swap with another or put together your own ingredients. This versatile pancake will turn out great. The recipe is below:

Five Seed and Tahini Granola Bars

Five Seed and Tahini Granola Bars

This incredibly easy home made vegan protein bar is powered by five different superfood seeds, packing a serious amount protein as well as fiber, good fats and carbs. In a plant protein world largely dominated by soy, other beans, peas, gluten and nuts, the nutritional powerhouse seeds are often overlooked. But they are potent, and they are a nice alternative for those who wish to avoid or lessen soy, gluten or nut consumption.

This recipe is quite minimal, the only cooking involved is the toasting of the oats and the seeds but the bars themselves are not baked afterwards. The sweetening comes largely from dates and there is no added refined oil! And the result is a delightfully fresh and chewy consistency with an almost addictive texture due to all the variety of seeds.

I almost always have some of these available in the fridge or freezer and they are a life saver and an absolute treat. The recipe is below:

Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola

Dreamy Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola

The dreamy granola (vegan, gf) is updated and it is now better than ever, in more than one aspect! And it is now available on our brand new dreamy.market

The original recipe, a.k.a the Chocolate Pecan Maple Granola was really really good. No real qualms with that. But we wanted do improve the texture and clustering that is so traditional for granola, so that it can be easier enjoyed as a stand-alone snack when you need to. After a few slight flavor tweaks as well, we are now aptly calling it the “Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola”, because it is that awesome.
