Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My whole life in the kitchen this week is Italian food; I'm working on my cookbook full time. But I did have time to make these awesome chocolate chip pancakes so what better day than Friday to write out this yummy recipe. I use Enjoy Life vegan chocolate chips, which are insanely yummy. These pancakes can be made in your food processor and poured right into your skillet; they take minimal time to prepare so this is a great breakfast for rushed mornings.

Chocolate chip pancakes:
1 cup of rolled oats
3/4 cups of nondairy milk
1 ripe banana, sliced
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp of chocolate chips

Put all ingredients in your food processor except the chocolate chips. Blend well. Pour the batter into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Spray oil in a skillet and pour the batter in. Wait for the pancakes to bubble on top and then flip over. This batter makes about 4 medium pancakes. I poured agave on them (because I ran out of syrup) and they were so awesome.

You can get creative with what you put in your pancakes batter: pumpkin puree, peanut butter, chia seeds, pancakes are so awesome when you dress them up. For new vegans, there is a nondairy butter called Earth Balance that is yum if you are used to butter on your pancakes.

Have a fabulous weekend!! What will you be cooking? Did you like Facebook yet?

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
