Warning: this breakfast might cause you to lick your computer screen.
Do you lie in bed at night, dreaming up recipes? I do. It helps me fall asleep, and I’m much more likely to think of a great recipe when I’m not staring into the fridge.
These Pancake Truffles are by far the most amazing, decadent, and delicious breakfast recipe that I’ve ever dreamed up.
Ingredients (for 3 truffles or 1 serving):
- 1/2 cup raw oatmeal
- 1/3 cup whole wheat pancake mix
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 4.5 inches of banana (cut into three 1.5 inch pieces)
- 1.4 cup whole pecans, crushed
- Maple syrup to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine first five ingredients in small bowl.
- On a plate, spread out crushed pecan.
- Grease cookie sheet.
- Separate mix into three piles.
- Take one segment of banana and coat in the pancake mix. It will be kind of sticky and wet, but that’s fine.
- Form ball around the banana segment, and then roll in the crushed pecans.
- Place on greased cookie sheet.
- Repeat with other banana segments.
- Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
- Remove, plate, and drizzle in maple syrup.
The pancake mix forms a hard shell around the hot, mushy banana. It’s too delicious to put into words!
And it LOOKS beautiful. This would be such a great item to serve at a brunch or for a romance Sunday breakfast.
I served mine with a bowl of orange and blackberry:
Do you create your own recipes? Where do you find inspiration? Or do you prefer to follow recipes? Do you use the Internet or cookbooks as your guide?
Sometimes I’m creative enough to improvise but most of the time it’s from seeing something on Food Network or seeing it on a blog that I find inspiration.
Those pancake truffles look divine. So creative! Have a great Friday!
