Sorry, Carnation, this isn’t an ad for your product (which I was obsessed with in the 80′s, by the way).
Thanks to Better Oats, I’ve got a ton of flavored instant oatmeal in the house and decided to make some pancakes this morning.
For one serving – combine 1 packet instant oatmeal (I used the Cinnamon Roll flavor) with 1 tsp. baking powder and 1 egg. Cook in a sprayed, nonstick skillet over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Very thick and hearty, and since there’s already sugar in them (or in this case, sucralose) I didn’t really need my usual maple syrup or fruit preserves on top – I chunked up some honeydew on the side for some juiciness/sweetness:
Very quick, filling and satisfying – will be making these again and again (until I run out of packets!)
Most of the day was spent working on a film audition I have later this week – there’s a lot of research/prep to be done on this one, and luckily I’ve got the time!
Lunch was 3 hours post pancake -
- Organic baby spinach
- Organic roma tomato
- Shaved Parmesan Cheese
- Turkey Slices
- Mike’s Special Flax Oil Dressing
- Lavender Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Two organic Calimyrna figs too
Yup, I just eat them whole and raw (but not the stem part). A very simple but satisfying meal.
Now I’m off to Christy’s – she’s going to help me rehearse!
