Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Pancakes With Brown Rice Syrup

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Pancakes With Brown Rice Syrup. I know we have posted a pancake recipe on this blog before, but I recently started making them with mostly oats instead of flour. Use quick oats if you want them a bit smoother or old fashion for that "oaty" texture.

‎1C quick oats
1/2 C flour or enough to make them pancaky
1T baking powder
1/4t salt
1C almond or soy milk

Layer with peanut butter and bananas and smother with your syrup of choice.

Sourdough Magic

Ok, so I made a sourdough starter by simply adding a cup of water to a cup of flour and let it sit out for a week covered with cheesecloth. After an unimpressive attempt at ginger beer I wasn't really expecting my sourdough to really work. I thought maybe we just don't have yeast in the air. Well, it worked and I have been exploring the world of sourdough.

After a few just ok loaves a sourdough bread I happened upon some sourdough crackers at a friend's house and could not believe how good they were. On the next store trip I picked up a box and it was gone the same day.

After a quick search I found this cracker recipe and adapted it using earth balance.

I did the first batch on a pizza stone and the second and third on cookie sheets. The final one I did on the pizza stone again after it had cooled a bit. The ones on the stone were a bit crispier and cooked much more evenly.

It has been years since I have had Cheese-It, but I immediately thought these taste just like them. Amazing good.
