Pancake Truffles

in All Posts

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.


Pancake Truffles


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.
  • Enjoy!


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?



  • Lauren @ A Fit Foodie April 23, 2010, 9:58 am

    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!

  • Lindsey @ Sound Eats April 23, 2010, 9:59 am

    I use this word sparingly, but this is truly an epic breakfast!! 🙂

  • Jessica @ How Sweet April 23, 2010, 9:59 am

    Whaaaaa???? Those look INSANE. Holy cow.

    I usually come up with my own recipes – I love it. It is comforting and relaxing to me. If I don’t, I have a giant stack of cookbooks!

  • Evan Thomas April 23, 2010, 9:59 am

    Hummunah hummunah hummunah! I love that you dream about recipes 🙂 I definitely get inspiration from the internet for the most part.

  • Megan@EatScrapRun April 23, 2010, 10:00 am

    I am not very creative when it comes to cooking 🙁 I am glad you are creative though because these look so good!! I am adding the ingredients to my grocery list right now!!! Yum!

  • Shawna @ Balancing Me April 23, 2010, 10:00 am

    These look soooooooo good! I can’t wait to make them.

    I usually start with a standard recipe from the internet and then improvise from there.

  • Megan @ The Ugly Nutrition Truth April 23, 2010, 10:01 am

    Oh my goodness, those look delicious! SO creative.
    I like to follow the base of a recipe, and then play around with it by adding/swapping stuff out. And I do actually get a lot of inspiration from the blog world, not necessarily recipes but combinations of how other people put things together always comes back to me when I’m in the grocery store/farmer’s market.

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) April 23, 2010, 10:01 am

    um, wow, these look and sound incredible! i’m a good mix of both i think…sometimes i get inspiration from something someone else made, and other times i just dream stuff up on my own. as long as it tastes good i don’t really care 🙂

  • Diana April 23, 2010, 10:02 am

    That looks so good! Yum 🙂
    I’m not a great cook so I’m definitely not comfortable creating recipes just yet 😛

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs April 23, 2010, 10:02 am

    Caitlin, you are priceless – those look A MA Z ING!! I have to make them!!
    I lie in bed thinking about what I’ll cook all the time :p and I read recipe books ALL the time, and everytime I visit a blog, the first page I turn to is the recipe section!!
    I love getting inspiration 😀
    I made butternut squash pancakes today after thinking about it whilst trying to sleep…they were ‘my own’ creation, though I know it’s been done a million times before 😛
    Have a great day!

  • Jessica @ Jessica Balances April 23, 2010, 10:03 am

    WOW those look amazing. Can’t believe you came up with that! 🙂 I am most definitely in no way experienced enough to create my own recipes, but maybe one day.

  • Courtney aka ThatRunnerChick April 23, 2010, 10:03 am

    you cant go wrong with warm banana!

  • Danielle April 23, 2010, 10:03 am

    … W. O. W.

    I usually use other recipes as inspiration and then adjust them to my liking. I like to think it makes me somewhat creative 😉 hope you enjoyed those!

  • Emily April 23, 2010, 10:04 am

    I more of a recipe girl. I like to know what my end result is supposed to be. But that breakfast looks fabulous – may have to give it a whirl!!! I also am afraid of messing up by mixing ingredients around…I hate to fail.

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin April 23, 2010, 10:04 am

    OMG Those look incredible!! I don’t really follow recipes but I do some research online for recipes to get ideas. I also love getting and giving ideas in the blogsphere.. this will definitely be one that I try!!

  • shannon (the daily balance) April 23, 2010, 10:05 am

    you are a genius.

    thank you so much for sharing!

  • PippaPatchwork April 23, 2010, 10:06 am

    That is just brilliant! You think up the best recipes.

    I usually get a vague idea of what I want to make, check out a couple recipes online and use them as a very rough guidelines. I like to use mainly ingredients that I already have on hand, and modify to my own particular taste.

  • KindraC April 23, 2010, 10:07 am

    I just drooled on my keyboard. Great recipe! I’m gonna try that this weekend I think.

  • Matt April 23, 2010, 10:07 am

    Wow those look GOOD!

  • Nicci@NiftyEats April 23, 2010, 10:08 am

    I love to see what other bloggies are baking/cooking. Your recipes are always so creative. I refer back to cookbooks and the internet.

  • Jayce April 23, 2010, 10:09 am

    Those look delicious!

    I like to make up different pies. Have you seen the movie “Waitress”? That’s me, except I have a sweet husband and would never cheat on him.

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 10:20 am

      love that movie!

  • brandi April 23, 2010, 10:09 am

    what a fun idea! But I would have to add some chocolate in there to really be a truffle 🙂

  • Christine @ Grub, Sweat and Cheers April 23, 2010, 10:11 am

    I think you should send that recipe to a food mag – looks absoutely delicious and definitely worthy of mass publishing.

    I have a gazillion cookbooks and use them for inspiration or to find something new…but I also often wing things or change things up to suit my tastes.

  • Cara April 23, 2010, 10:11 am

    I ALWAYS follow recipes, but am trying to break out of the addiction to stick to a recipe! Although, I’ll have to follow yours on this one…AH-MA-ZING!

  • Nikki T April 23, 2010, 10:12 am

    Definately must try this recipe…it looks WONDERFUL!!
    Some peanut butter in the middle would be yummy too!!

  • Shayna @ Cuts and Curves April 23, 2010, 10:13 am

    This recipe is amazing! I can’t believe you just thought that up. Maybe I need to start dreaming about recipes more often 😉

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg April 23, 2010, 10:13 am

    Brilliant and beautiful!!!! Love them!

  • Stephanie @ See Stephanie Run April 23, 2010, 10:14 am

    This really did make me want to lick my computer screen! I will be trying these tomorrow!

  • Kate April 23, 2010, 10:15 am

    That looks amaazing…might have to try that one this weekend! Thanks for sharing.

  • Rachel April 23, 2010, 10:15 am

    Holy crap those look so good!!!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) April 23, 2010, 10:17 am

    How pretty! I’m not very adventurous in the kitchen the first time I make a recipe but once I’ve done it one time, then I like to experiment a little more.

  • Me-Linh @ Sweet and Sweat April 23, 2010, 10:20 am

    I love creating my own recipes! I feel like a scientist in a lab or something. Except, a more fun lab.

  • Olivia @ Blissful Runner April 23, 2010, 10:20 am

    I literally just hollered “Oh my god!” across my office when these pictures came up on my computer screen. I know what we’ll be having for brunch tomorrow! Keep on dreaming up those recipes – I think you have a knack for it! 🙂

  • Midgetkeeper April 23, 2010, 10:21 am

    Those look delicious! I am half and half. I love to create my own stuff, but then use recipes for inspiration or just follow them.

  • Christina April 23, 2010, 10:23 am

    Awesome idea, it looks delicious! I love creating new recipes!

  • Camille April 23, 2010, 10:26 am

    Oh my goodness!
    I think you have created the ultimate breakfast food.
    I bow down to you.

  • ActiveEggplant April 23, 2010, 10:27 am

    Wow those look good! I

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter April 23, 2010, 10:30 am

    The truffles look fabulous! I just dream about all of the meals and snacks I want to have the next day 🙂

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries April 23, 2010, 10:31 am

    Guess who’s making these tomorrow morning?!? I generally just follow recipes…I’m not overly creative on my own.

  • Heather C April 23, 2010, 10:32 am

    OMG. I’m absolutely in love this. Without even scrolling down (just saw the pic and warning) I just shared this on Google Reader. SO MAKING THESE!

    this is also the 3rd post I’ve read this morning that involved pancakes. Gotta make some ‘cakes STAT, might be a breakfast-for-dinner night 😉

    I can’t say I “dream” up recipes, my inspiration definitely comes when I’m in the kitchen and/or in a grocery-bind – which forces more creativity!

  • Wei-Wei April 23, 2010, 10:36 am

    Oh, lordy lordy lord lord, girl! I love how creative you are in the kitchen! Now I wonder what would happen if some chocolatier saw this idea… And create breakfast, lunch and dinner truffles! o.O That would be ultimately weird.

    (But AWESOME! ;))

    I’m more of an intuitive-cooking sort of girl. It’s how my mom’s teaching me. My mom doesn’t usually follow recipes, unless it’s for baking (which is more precise, obviously) but when I cook dinner with her it’s more of a “taste-and-adjust” sort of process. A lot of trial and error takes place too, in my case. 😉

    For things that my mom don’t teach me, however, I think I am definitely a recipe girl. How conflicting! I don’t know if it’s the ED in me talking… but I like to know what’s in my food and how much. But I don’t know, cooking is all about experimentation, right? Getting adventurous in the kitchen is always fun 😀


  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman April 23, 2010, 10:36 am

    Genius. That’s it.

  • Sarah for Real April 23, 2010, 10:36 am

    Wow! Those DO look yummy. I’ll make up my own recipes when I’m the only one eating them. I hate the risk of failure when I am trying to prepare a meal for my husband too.

  • Amy @ Second City Randomness April 23, 2010, 10:37 am

    When baking, I follow a recipe exactly. But when I’m cooking, or trying something new, I just throw in whatever. i don’t think I’ve ever made the same thing twice!

  • *Andrea* April 23, 2010, 10:38 am

    YOU’RE A GENIUS!!!!these look soooooooo good. i often do dream up recipes but they’re more simple like a wrap with pb and craisins lol. this looks fab!

  • *Andrea* April 23, 2010, 10:39 am

    ps after operation beautiful i’m thinking you should publish a RECIPE book on simple, AMAZING vegetarian recipes 🙂

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 10:39 am

      hehe you read my mind.

      • *Andrea* April 23, 2010, 10:41 am

        ahh omg i’m getting excited!!! 🙂

  • jen trinque April 23, 2010, 10:45 am

    1. I laughed out loud when I read that I might lick my computer screen (wouldn’t be the first time, ha ha)
    2. Those look absolutely frickin’ amazing. I definitely have come up with some of my own recipes but man, that one looks incredible.

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing April 23, 2010, 10:47 am

    Oh my, that recipe looks seriously amazing!!! So creative 🙂 I am always looking for new ways to put banana into my breakfast. I love this idea!

  • Lauren @ eater not a runner April 23, 2010, 10:50 am

    Yum! Those look so good! I make up a lot of recipes but I get inspiration from blogs (both healthy blogs and food ones like smitten kitchen :-))

  • Heather @ Side of Sneakers April 23, 2010, 10:51 am

    Pure genius 🙂 I usually dream up recipes while I’m sitting at work haha. Sometimes in bed too, but then I get hungry and can’t sleep!

  • Caroline April 23, 2010, 10:53 am

    Wow it looks delish and easy to make! I think I will try making it this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  • emptynutjar April 23, 2010, 11:02 am

    I don’t know how you come up with this stuff. It still amazes me how you and Kath can make something as simple as a bowl of oats look so magical.

  • Joanne April 23, 2010, 11:06 am

    Super recipe. It looks and sounds delicious. I bet you could really use your imagination to vary the filling.

    I make up my own recipes as well as every other resource available but I almost never follow a recipe. I like to “tweak” a lot.

  • Marissa April 23, 2010, 11:07 am

    Oh boy! I am drooling all over my key board! I am going to try and make these with Ener-G egg replacer. They sound so good!

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople April 23, 2010, 11:07 am

    Oh my goodness, that is the neatest idea ever! It looks so decadent.

    I am definitely a recipe follower. Although, I have never followed a recipe exactly. I change things around a lot and make it my own, but for some reason I just can’t seem to start them myself.

  • Kelly April 23, 2010, 11:09 am

    Yum those look amazing. I love your recipes because they never include 300 ingredients like most recipes too- I’m much more likely to follow your recipes than one in a cook book.

  • Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story April 23, 2010, 11:12 am

    Oh.My.Wow. Those look amazing. I see myself making those and hosting a fantasic brunch with mimosas very, very soon.

  • Julia @ British Bride April 23, 2010, 11:13 am

    Oh my goodness me – those are amazing looking. Patent that recipe now girl! YOu’ll make milions!

    Have a great weekend.

    British Bride

  • Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers April 23, 2010, 11:13 am

    wow! these look phenomenal! you’re so creative!

  • Rachel April 23, 2010, 11:15 am

    I do create my own recipes a lot. I used to be too scared to but now that I’m a lot more comfortable in the kitchen, I don’t mind it.

    Once a week or so, I’ll try a brand new recipe just to keep things fresh and give me new ideas whenever I do want to just throw something together.

    Lately my inspiration has come from right here!! Thank you for all of the delicious ideas!

    I use the food blogs, cookbooks, and magazines (Clean Eating, Real Simple, Rachael Ray) for inspiration/recipes.

  • April 23, 2010, 11:16 am

    amazing is all i have to say about those pancake truffles!!

  • Lauren April 23, 2010, 11:17 am

    Are you kidding me??!! You are freakin’ GENIUS!!! This is the most creative recipe I’ve ever seen! Nice job 🙂

  • Carolyn @ lovinlosing April 23, 2010, 11:18 am

    Um, yeah…definitely going to try this tomorrow. Maybe with strawberries, too.

  • Marina April 23, 2010, 11:19 am

    Caitlin, you are a genious! This is incredible, I sooo want to try it right away!

  • Therese April 23, 2010, 11:21 am

    I think I just fell in love with you a little. Between you and Angela today, I’m going to have a FABULOUS weekend of breakfasts!!!

    I’m only JUST starting to experiment with recipes. I never trusted myself to try but that’s how we get to Carnegie Hall right? Practice!

  • christin April 23, 2010, 11:22 am

    those look amazing!!!

  • Ashley April 23, 2010, 11:24 am

    I am seriously drooling on my keyboard! haha you’re so creative! I am just starting to venture into a world without recipes :)…but with very basic foods. Hopefully I will start being more inventive as I try new things and learn how to incorporate them into different dishes! Will have to make these soon! Thanks!

  • Laurie April 23, 2010, 11:31 am

    Holy yum!!!! I’m totally making these tomorrow morning! Caitlin, you’re so creative, I wish I could come up with recipes like that, but it’s usually a no go.

  • Ambre - The 3-Day Walker April 23, 2010, 11:32 am

    I’m DROOLING!!!! I’m going to have to try these this weekend! 🙂

  • emily April 23, 2010, 11:37 am

    Holy crap you are a genius!

    I get inspiration from all over the place. Sometimes I make my own recipes, but mostly I put my own spin on existing recipes (from online and cookbooks); generally making things spicer and/or healthier.

  • Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion April 23, 2010, 11:39 am

    D-R-O-O-L!!! I need to make those now!!!

  • Hannah April 23, 2010, 11:43 am

    How big were these truffles?? As in, how do you not eat them in one bite!!! haha

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 11:49 am

      three bites?

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) April 23, 2010, 11:46 am

    Very creative! I’m very impressed. They look delicious, too.

  • Jenn (from April 23, 2010, 11:47 am

    😯 That’s the most unique breakfast creation I have ever seen!! That’s awesome, and looks absolutely delicious. 😀

    I think about food! haha I come up with my own recipes most of the time, but I get a LOT of inspiration from blogs. I actually just asked on my blog the other day how much other bloggers are influenced by the blogs they read. The general consensus was that we get lots of ideas from each other. 🙂


  • Emily April 23, 2010, 11:50 am

    how clever! I always keep a notebook at my bedside to document my nighttime inspirations 🙂 if I am trying a new dish, I will often reference a recipe or two. but after a trial run I like to riff and make it my own.

  • Brittney April 23, 2010, 11:50 am

    Wow, those pancake truffles look AWESOME. Totally trying those ASAP!! 🙂

  • ashleigh April 23, 2010, 11:51 am

    Wow those look so good!!! I can’t follow a recipe to save my life so I get ideas from blogs and the internet and then turn the into my own based on what I want and what I have on hand. I also get some ideas through cookbooks but the internet is so much easier because there are so many websites that you can plug in what you have and it will give you a recipe.

  • Alison @ Fueling for Fitness April 23, 2010, 11:53 am

    HOLY MOLY those look good!!!!!! Thanks for dreaming those up, and sharing with us!

  • Retta @ RunRettaRun April 23, 2010, 11:58 am

    I get hit w/ inspiration occasionally but not often. Those look so good!

  • Anne P April 23, 2010, 12:00 pm

    Wow. You are a genius! Must try these…

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) April 23, 2010, 12:02 pm

    Oooo those look decadent. I prefer to get inspiration from recipes and turn it to what I want. I don’t think well on my own.

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie April 23, 2010, 12:03 pm

    You’re right. I DO want to lick my screen! That looks sooo gooood!

    I get recipe inspirations from anywhere I can. Usually from my garden, my cookbooks or online.

  • Christina April 23, 2010, 12:06 pm

    You’re a genius. These look amazing!! I’m not very good at thinking up my own recipes. I wish I was!

  • Lizz (leadingthegoodlife) April 23, 2010, 12:07 pm

    Holy Pancake Truffles, Batman! 🙂

  • Kath April 23, 2010, 12:13 pm

    WOW – fun!!

  • Ambre - The 3-Day Walker April 23, 2010, 12:21 pm

    How many calories do you think this recipe has in it?

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 3:32 pm

      oooo let me see… maybe 600 with the all the nuts and syrup? it’s definitely not the lightest breakfast. 🙂 its a nice special treat!

  • Liz April 23, 2010, 12:27 pm

    Holy cow! I cannot wait to try these.

  • Sami April 23, 2010, 12:28 pm

    GENIUS, Caitlin!!!! What kind of pancake mix do you use? I know it’s whole wheat, but what brand? I’ve been meaning to try Bob’s Red Mill, but I’m going to have to order online…What do you recommend? <3 Happy friday, btw! xo.

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 3:32 pm

      I love the Hodgson Mills mixes.

  • Lisa April 23, 2010, 12:29 pm

    I really wish I had the ability to create recipes! I just don’t have that creativity. 🙁

  • katie April 23, 2010, 12:37 pm

    Oh my goodness, this is crazy! And looks super delicious! I wold never have thought of this!! I come up with my own concepts and then I search the internet for similar things to get an idea of the quantities of ingredients I should use. I never completely follow recipes though. Haha

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 23, 2010, 12:37 pm

    Oh my Jesus.

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit April 23, 2010, 12:37 pm

    Caitlin, I’m SO impressed at how you can create recipes!! I love ‘tweaking’ recipes, especially for baked goods, with different ingredients and spices, but I usually like to have a recipe to go off of. And I LOVE trying new recipes. 🙂 I might have to try those truffles out!

  • Andrea April 23, 2010, 12:44 pm

    Genius! Must try now!

  • Anna @ Oats N Boats April 23, 2010, 12:56 pm

    Um wow. That looks insanely good! I can’t wait to try it.

  • Angharad April 23, 2010, 1:02 pm

    Errr yeah. Those look amazing! I like dreaming up recipes but I also get a lot of inspiration from blogs and web sites and restaurants and friends!

  • Sassy Molassy April 23, 2010, 1:03 pm

    This is a pretty divine looking recipe. Nice work. Love the truffle idea.

  • Bobbie (mymamaruns) April 23, 2010, 1:13 pm

    They definitely look yummy!
    I dabble in my own creations but I often follow recipes too.
    I tend to take a recipe and make it my own more often than not.
    I’m a much better baker than cook honestly.

  • Christie {Honoring Health} April 23, 2010, 1:28 pm

    Oh.My.Goddess. What an amazing creation! Those are totally going down in blogging history.

    I love writing recipes and get inspiration from all sorts of places but mostly the internet since I am in front of the computer all day every day.

  • Tina April 23, 2010, 1:35 pm

    I prefer to follow recipes. I am not very creative with food. Yet at least. And I usually use the internet since it is so accessible and I’m too cheap to buy a ton of cookbooks.

  • Jaclyn April 23, 2010, 1:36 pm

    I love coming up with my own recipes too. I like reading inspiring ones like this though, what a great idea!! Now I’m inspired to get creative in the kitchen this weekend!! 😉

  • kat April 23, 2010, 1:44 pm

    Ummm… yeah those look freakin’ amazing! Will most definitely be making those soon! Thanks for the great idea!

  • mary ann April 23, 2010, 1:46 pm

    so i was convinced that i couldn’t see the word “epic” written on yours or megans blog one more time without poking my eyes out with unsharpened pencils… but after creating this friggin masterpiece, i cant search for a more perfect description… these. are. EPIC. one baby modificiation might be a touch of coconut with the pecans??Hot damn these babies look glorious!!

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 3:33 pm

      hahahah i am truly to limit the word epic… but its just such a good word.

  • Sam (My Sugar Obsession) April 23, 2010, 2:13 pm

    OH MY GOD. your breakfast = amazing. totally making these tomorrow morning.

  • Mastering Public Health April 23, 2010, 2:18 pm

    Genius! This sounds so decadent.

  • runnerforever April 23, 2010, 2:21 pm

    I took one look at this breakfast and was like what on earth is this creation that I must have. Great cooking!

  • Cristina April 23, 2010, 2:39 pm

    OMG those look ah-may-zing!! And I can actually buy all those ingredients! (I hate seeing something delicious looking with all kinds of crazy ingredients) I cannot WAIT to (try to) make those!

  • caronae April 23, 2010, 2:50 pm

    Genius! This is on my weekend brunch list of must-trys. I love it! I def. experiment and make up my own recipes sometimes, and then follow others sometimes; depends on how much creative energy I have! I like thinking about recipes when I’m running.

    Those truffles look epic – truly delicious – but honestly, am I the only one who giggled a bit when I saw cross section of the one that had been cut in half? 😉

    • Caitlin April 23, 2010, 3:54 pm

      hahah why did you giggle? does it look perverted in a creative way!?

  • Teri [a foodie stays fit] April 23, 2010, 4:12 pm

    these look so good!!! If I’m baking, i’ll usually follow the recipe or tweak it a little. With cooking, i’m much more adventurous and like to combine strong flavors (e.g. goat cheese, sauteed mushrooms) with basics, like quinoa, sweet potatoes that go well with a variety of flavors. I’m impressed you thought this up!

  • Jessica April 23, 2010, 4:47 pm

    OMG! I cannot wait to try your pancake truffles! They look sooooo good- way to be creative!

  • cassie April 23, 2010, 4:52 pm

    wow, truffle pancakes, is definitely on my list of “must try” recipes.

  • Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] April 23, 2010, 4:53 pm

    Genius! Clearly your brain works best at night ; )

  • Ashley April 23, 2010, 6:47 pm

    Are you kidding me with that breakfast? I WILL be making that tomorrow or sunday…sometimes I see things and right away I know I MUST make it. I do come up with a lot of recipes on my own, which is so fun. I also like finding recipes and tweaking them with my own flava’. Have a great weekend!!!

  • Claire April 23, 2010, 6:49 pm

    Definitely will be making these sometimes soon…I am craving some maple syrup like crazy right now.

    I try to create my own recipes but love to find inspiration from my favorite restaurants online, like Candle Cafe. I also tend to use recipes online more than books and that really needs to change since I LOVE LOVE print media and I have bought my fair share of good cookbooks in the last few years that have been neglected!

  • Ariffa April 23, 2010, 7:16 pm

    wow! that looks awesome, I usually get inspired by blogs to make weird recipes, the looks i get from my parents are priceless =)

  • Amanda April 23, 2010, 7:46 pm

    For the record: I licked my computer screen. Holy cow those look good!

  • Kate April 23, 2010, 9:28 pm

    Brilliant, Caitlin! Absolutely brilliant…can’t wait to try these!

  • Jolene ( April 23, 2010, 10:30 pm

    OH WOW Caitlin – what an amazing invention!!!! I can’t wait to try them!!!!!!

  • Katherine @ Lipgloss and Spandex April 23, 2010, 10:43 pm

    I am a terrible cook and cannot improvise anything delicious to save my life. I do like delicious food, however, and will try out highly rated recipes. 😛

  • JustFortuitous April 24, 2010, 12:27 am

    What a great idea! I’m always looking to create something new, but I never really go through with it.

  • Judy (cookbook maven) April 24, 2010, 5:49 am

    Wow! those look awesome!

    Kind of obvious from my blog that I am NOT real creative recipe-wise, and I cook a LOT from cookbooks.

    Once in a great while I am inspired. Slightly.

  • Dominique April 24, 2010, 12:50 pm

    I usually did a bit of everything: make up my own recipes or follow recipes. I have IBS and am allergic to a bunch of other stuff (non-organic chicken and shellfish) so there’s a lot of stuff I can’t eat. If I like a recipe I’ll usually alter the ingredients so I can make it. I find inspiration from other food bloggers and cookbooks. It seems like every time the BF and I head into the bookstore, we walk out with a new cookbook or two.

    Those pancake truffles look amazing! What kind of pancake mix do you use? Where do you get it from?

    • caitlin April 24, 2010, 2:10 pm

      That is Hodsgon Mills mix from my reg grocery store 🙂

  • Katherine July 4, 2010, 4:13 pm

    Okay – I need to make these for my mother’s birthday breakfast next week, they are to die for!!!

    Can I just use a whole wheat pancake recipe I always use…or does it have to be a certain “mix” ? please let me know!!

    • caitlin July 4, 2010, 10:40 pm

      You can use any mix! It will be great!

  • Katherine July 5, 2010, 1:16 pm

    Okay thanks, but I have one more question!! I use actual cooked oatmeal, right??

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my comments 🙂

    • caitlin July 5, 2010, 10:18 pm

      Raw oatmeal like that you could make plain oatmeal! 🙂
