I love breakfast for dinner! Johnny? Not so much.
But we struck a compromise that I can make it at least once a month. I didn't feel like an elaborate dinner, so I made some delicious apple cinnamon pancakes that hit the spot.
Even Johnny had to admit that they were great!
2 cups Bisquick HeartSmart mix
1 1/4 cup skim milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 red apple, diced
Whisk everything but the apples in a medium mixing bowl. Wash and cut the apples in a small dice and fold into the mix.
Preheat a griddle pan and scoop the pancakes out using a 1/4 measuring scoop, for even size and cooking.
Once the pancake's edges become dried and the whole pancake forms small bubbles, flip it over to finish on the other side. These are best cooked slowly over a medium heat so the apples have time to cook and soften.
Makes 14 pancakes using the 1/4 cup measuring scoop.
The side of the Bisquick HeartSmart box says that 3 pancakes are 200 calories. However, the addition of other ingredients (vanilla, apple, etc.) will change that number.
I left the skin on the apple, which made for pretty pancakes and a nice crunch throughout.
In addition to maple syrup, I also mixed sugar and sour cream for another tasty topping option.
The apple was moist and soft, with a warm comforting flavor from the cinnamon. I loved these pancakes and will definitely be making them again!
Now, for some wedding shoe help!! I know I'm a food blogger, so I threw a feeler out on Twitter and had positive responses that nobody would mind some random wedding/shoe talk.
I would like to wear green heels during the ceremony. I had like 20 bookmarked, but have since gone through and with Johnny's help have it narrowed down to four options.
Keep in mind that the wedding will be late afternoon/early evening and it will be December. If you run across any other pair of green heels you think I should consider, don't hesitate to e-mail them to me!
