delicious vegan pancakes

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

since finding out about colsen's dairy & egg allergy, i've been trying out new recipes to eat (since i am still breastfeeding). one morning kevin surprised me with breakfast in bed and he made these delicious pancakes for me and i was amazed at how yummy they were! ever since, i've been hooked on them and make them often. my favorite thing about these pancakes is the crunchier outside and soft middle (yumm!) and they soak in the maple syrup perfectly. i modified the original recipe a bit by making them wheat pancakes so they're a little healthier ;) even if you don't eat vegan, but don't have any eggs on hand - try out this recipe and maybe you'll be hooked too!

vegan wheat pancakes

dairy free / egg free

1 cup of whole wheat flour 
1 tbs. sugar 
2 tbs. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup almond milk (or soy milk)
2 tbs. vegetable oil


Combine the 4 dry ingredients in a mixing bowl - (flour, sugar, baking powder & salt).
Add the almond milk and vegetable oil to the mixture.
Mix until smooth.
Spoon one pancakes' worth of the mixture into the heated pan.
Flip (carefully) when you see the bubbles in the middle of the pancake, or if the edges are looking stiffened. 
Repeat until the batter is gone.

** i suggest you make the batter a little ahead of time and let it sit so the batter thickens (if you want thicker pancakes)

Yields 6-8 pancakes
Serving size: 2 (or more if you can't stop) ;)
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10mins


family walks to the park

Monday, April 6, 2015

 it was so windy outside! the little bit of hair he has was blowing in the wind :)

now that the sun sets later and the weather is beautiful, we love to get out and go on family walks together. we love exploring the new area where we live and it's a special time for us to spend as a family. colsen loves being in his stroller and looking around. we stopped at the nearby park that's down the street from our house. when we put colsen on the grass, he didn't want to put his arms down; until kevin gave him a pinecone... that of course went into the mouth after inspecting it.

nine months with colsen

Thursday, April 2, 2015

some things about colsen this month:

+ he recognizes words now like "up" "more" "all done" etc.
+ learned how to squeeze his squeaky toy by himself!
+ close to crawling. he got on all fours and rocks but then falls back on his stomach
+ he's a pro at feeding himself now! he rarely lets me spoon feed him anymore
+ can drink from his sippy cup by himself - i keep water in it so that he gets used to having it around
+ chuckles all the time at random things! his humor is starting to show through and it's so fun!
+ he loves swinging in the baby swing at the park and going on walks in his stroller
