Hey there. Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Steve and I have been really busy lately, both with the puppy and other things. This weekend we stopped by a buck and doe for someone Steve went to high school with and took Tyson down to the river by our house to see how he’d react around water.
I think he’ll definitely like the water when he gets a little bit bigger. Having a puppy every day is an adventure. It seems he learns something new everyday. Chester is also holding his own and definitely isn’t being pushed around by the dog, he makes me proud.
Here are some eats from the weekend:
I also made a pretty fantastic breakfast for Steve and I on Sunday morning. One of my favourite childhood foods is blinchiki. Blinchiki are a Russian/Ukrainian version of crepes. Steve calls them boon-chuckers and he really enjoys them as well. They made from flour, eggs and milk and while you can use whole wheat white flour really makes the best ones which is why I don’t have them very often. They are so good with apple sauce, maple syrup, or honey in the middle. Craving something delicious I thought that there must be a way to make these healthier and low and behold there is.
This version is made with oat flour (ground oats) and while they aren’t as thin as the ones I typically make we both thoroughly enjoyed them.
- 1 cup oats
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk (I rolled with almond milk)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Pinch of salt
- Optional: 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
- Mix everything together in your magic bullet/blender
- Pour a small amount of batter into a greased skillet over medium high heat and swirl around so the mixture coats the pan in a thin layer
- Cook for 1-2 minutes and carefully flip to cook the other side
To keep them warm I kept them in a low temperature oven until we were ready to eat. We filled ours with sugar free maple syrup, apple sauce, and jelly. These are ridiculously good and you should probably make some soon.
We enjoyed our pile of blinchiki with homemade hash brown potatoes and turkey bacon.
This is a great recipe for the whole family as kids love being able to fill their own and they’re made from good, wholesome ingredients. Whip up a batch and let me know what you think.
