morning yums

I have two lenten breakfast recipes to share. One, Vegan Pancakes, or “veaggies” as we so fondly refer to them have been a staple and Aaron actually prefers them to the regular version. The second, Spiced Lenten Waffles I tried for the first time this morning. I altered the original recipe by adding the oil, sugar and diced apples. Beware, these suckers are tasty. Enjoy!

Vegan Pancakes

1 1/4 C flour (whole wheat or unbleached or a combo)

2 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbsp oil

1 1/2 C water

Mix wet and dry ingredients separately. Combine and whisk. Cook on a lightly greased, pre-heated griddle. This makes enough for the four of us, although I have needed to double the batch if we’re really hungry.

Spiced Lenten Waffles

4 C flour (whole wheat or unbleached or a combo)

2 Tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 small apple, peeled and diced

3 or so cups of soy or rice milk

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add liquids and stir until lumps are just out. Add enough liquid to make the batter somewhat runny. Preheat the waffle iron and lightly grease it. This recipe yielded seven waffles on my Belgian waffler.

    oh my goodness, I’m going to totally try these. I know us catechumens are trying not to freak out too bad about how the heck anyone does the full fast faithfully?! Most of us, per Father’s advice, are just doing one area this Lent but we often talk about what we will eat next year when we will fall in head first! Pass on as many receipes as you can.
