Breakfast Bites

Last night I made Chocolate Chip & Pecan Pancakes.  No dairy or egg.  They were good.  I used spelt.  I love spelt.

I put it in everything.

Only, I don't have a picture because the pancakes were gobbled up too fast.  So here's a potato bake that I made in my cupcake maker.  The insides were super moist but not wet.  They were breakfast in one little bite.

I might have to make these again today.  But not right now.  First thing on today's list is print all the new coupons.  It's coupon day.  Then I have the clean the house because tomorrow I ain't doing shit.

    We'll have to try spelt.Prefer not to eat eggs. At least not on purpose. Accidental eggs happen...

      I love it. It's been said that spelt is hard to work with and it's often confused with Farro, but confusion aside, it's a great grain. I love it. It kicks ass in gravy too.

    1. it's one of the most ancient of grains and it is becoming trendy again in baking

    2. Stephanie & Dezzy: It is an ancient grain but sadly, spelt isn't popular enough to be trendy.

      Spelt (often confused with Farro), has a reputation of being difficult to work with, as it spreads and takes a lot of work to get the gluten properly formed.

      That being said, it's a killer grain and I love it in everything from breakfast bakes to gravy.

      Cheers and boogie boogie.

    3. in my country buckwheat flour is also an ancient one and also a trendy one in recent years....

    4. Interesting that it's trending where you live. Here, it's just another grain on the shelves, sold in buckwheat bags and in pancake and waffle pre-mixes.

      I'm not a fan of pre-mixes, but I love to add buckwheat to my own pancake recipes.

      So flippin' good.

      Do you ever eat waffles or pancakes?

    1. For the one in the above picture, I shredded a raw potato (skinless), and steamed for 5 minutes, before adding it to the bowl with everything else.

    2. That being said, I will play with the method in upcoming batches. Because that's where the fun is. Thanks for asking and boogie boogie.

  7. The pancakes sounded so good ---but that potato bake looks good! I could eat one right now. I guess I'll have to settle for my almond croissant and chai tea.

  8. Pancakes without dairy or egg? That is really interesting! You know, I'd never even heard of spelt until I started following your blog. You learn something new every day in this blogging world.

      It's not a widely used grain because it has a reputation of being hard to work with, but I tell ya, no problems over here. I love it.

      Yes, no egg, no dairy. All good.

    3. Ohhh man. I know that feeling, only with me, I say I'm going to rest and then Tim comes home and the kitchen table looks like a bake shoppe.

      Hope you get some good rest in there soon.

    1. I'm going to fry them on the stove-top and see if they work. If they do, I'll post the ingredients and method. Right now, I just make them in the machine because it bakes from all sides at once.
