“I just spent a couple of weeks camping in Battleground and then I jogged down here for the past couple of days.”

“Like, literally jogged?”

“Yep. I try stay in this area because my 3-year old daughter lives here with her mom.”

“It’s great that you’re still involved.”

“Yeah, it’s important, especially for a little girl to have her dad. I regret not having the stable family thing work out. I mean, I wanted to make pancakes on a Wednesday, not on Saturday just because that’s ‘dad’s day.’”


How do you get over the hump? One word: Pancakes 😍 These were (vegan and gluten free) peanut butter pancakes with chocolate syrup and they were absolutely delicious

Apple Butter Pancakes

My daughter requested apple butter pancakes for this week’s Pancake Wednesday festivities. It was a great suggestion, especially coming from a three year old, and one that I hadn’t previously considered. I’ve used apple sauce in pancakes plenty of times but I must say that apple butter pancakes whoop up on apple sauce pancakes. I made this recipe up on the fly so feel free to experiment. Here’s what we came up with:

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt

1/3 cup of brown sugar

3 heaping tablespoons of apple butter

2 tablespoons of melted butter

2 cups of milk

1 egg

1 golden delicious apple, peeled and diced

Next up … peach butter pancakes.


Apricot Butter Pancakes with Granola Topping

Honestly I didn’t even know that apricot butter was a thing until my wife purchased it a few weeks ago to use in an Easter dinner recipe. I was intrigued, and as I’m often wont to do, said “I’m gonna put that in pancakes!" 

Well, I did just that on Wednesday night and they were awesome. Here’s the rundown of the recipe.

2 cups flour

pinch of salt

2 tablespoons of baking powder

½ cup Splenda

2 tablespoons of butter

1 egg

4 tablespoons of apricot butter

After putting together the batter I had the idea to crumble some granola on top of each pancake. I didn’t have any loose granola so I bashed a Nature Valley Oats & Honey bar into submission.

The kids scarfed them up and were really amused by the granola crumble. I get the feeling they’ll want granola crumbled on top of just about everything from now on.
