Oh England, I love you…but why do you make it so difficult to buy pumpkin puree here! Before I go into detail about these delicious gluten free cinnamon maple pancakes, I have to rant a little…bare with me!
One of my favourite fruits is the humble pear. In my eyes it’s completely underestimated, but why shouldn’t it be in the same league as an apple? They’re both easy to eat fruits that don’t need preparing, they taste delicious raw or baked and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Even so, the pear always seems to be forgotten about!
It’s been two weeks since I’ve posted on this blog, and I have to say it’s been lovely having a break! I’ve had a lot on mind the last couple of weeks, and something has to give in order for me to not completely melt down with stress.
Happy 1 year Blogiversary to Oat So Delicious!
Ok, it’s not quite my blogiversary today – this was actually at the beginning of March, but being the busy bee that I am I completely forgot to celebrate!
Banana bread is one of the most underrated baked goods. It’s the perfect breakfast, dessert or snack, can be eaten straight away or toasted, and uses up all your brown, speckled bananas!
Did I ever mention that granola is my favourite breakfast?
Don’t get me wrong, I love my oats SO much but I don’t remember having breakfast without granola. You can eat it on its own, serve it with yoghurt or simply sprinkle it on top of oats and smoothies – plus it’s the perfect breakfast to take travelling or when you stay round friends or family. This is really handy if they’re not 100% clued up on gluten free/Coeliac issues, as you know exactly what is in it!
Overnight oats are one of my favourite breakfasts – they’re so easy to make, all you need to do is throw all the ingredients into a bowl/Kilner jar, give it a stir and pop it in the fridge overnight! Come morning time, your breakfast is ready to go. I find that overnight oats are very popular in summer, but their popularity fades out during the winter months in favour of traditional hot porridge.
