Spelt Pancakes

in All Posts

I totally forgot about Spring Forward (but I love how smart phones automatically adjust) so I am completely dragging this morning.  That hour can mean a lot!


Last night, I was laying in bed Googling ‘spelt pancakes’ and the first recipe that came up was one by my dear blend (blog friend) Angela from Oh She Glows


Angela’s never steered me wrong in the past, so I decided it was fate and baked her recipe this morning.




Spelt flour has a nutty flavor and high protein.  Thanks to the spelt flour and the protein powder that I added in, these pancakes pack quite the protein punch, so hopefully they will fuel me through my workout nicely.


With a banana and syrup.


What are your favorite blog-world recipes?


Mine are:  Anne P’s granola bars and Angela’s Vegan Overnight Oats.

    I love those spelt pancakes! I’ve made them many times… they seem to be the only pancakes I don’t burn. lol

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine March 13, 2011, 9:05 am

    I’m so horrible at making pancakes, but these look absolutely delicious!! I love Angela’s recipes, as well as Mama Pea’s. Her Italian Wedding Soup is one of my all-time favorite veg recipes.

  • maria @ Chasing the Now March 13, 2011, 9:10 am

    Those pancakes look awesome. Too bad I already got some overnight oats chilling in the fridge or I would probably have to make some for breakfast tomorrow.

  • Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel March 13, 2011, 9:13 am

    the two banana slices on top are like banana eyes to ur delicious pancake monster!! mmm you did Angela proud with these! <3

  • Evan Thomas March 13, 2011, 9:17 am

    I love Jenna’s Oh Baby Bars. Have made those time and time again. and Gena’s banana soft serve, of course.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) March 13, 2011, 9:18 am

    Those pancakes look and sound incredible! Since I develop recipes, I don’t really look around for recipes. I like looking at pretty food though and then coming up with my own recipes to fit my food restrictions. Have a great day today Caitlin.

  • Amanda (Eating Up) March 13, 2011, 9:18 am

    I’ve been meaning to make those spelt pancakes. This was a great reminder!

  • Jaclyn March 13, 2011, 9:23 am

    I don’t know if they have outside dining or not, but a great vegetarian restaurant in Atlanta is Cafe Sunflower. I ate there in January and had the most delicious lentil loaf with mashed potatoes and broccoli (my perfect comfort food), and the friend I was with had a Thai salad that he said was fantastic. The food is amazing, but I also have a soft spot for them because I lost my wallet there and they were super cool and found it for me. =) Cafe Sunflower is the best!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:41 pm

      That’s cool they found your wallet and returned it 🙂

      • Jaclyn March 14, 2011, 7:51 am

        Unfortunately not before I cancelled all my credit cards! But it could have been much worse. =)

        However, most importantly – the food is awesome.

  • Stacie @ Imperfectly Healthy March 13, 2011, 9:25 am

    You’re pancakes looks great! I get many of my dessert recipes from Cookie Madness – it’s a definite fav!

  • Freya March 13, 2011, 9:39 am

    Ah those pancakes are the best! That was the recipe that made me LIKE pancakes! I now make the same mix, but with oatbran, gram flour, buckwheat flour, ginger, nutmeg..whatever is going!
    I’d say my number 1 blog recipe is green monsters. Such a super way to eat kale 🙂

  • Katie March 13, 2011, 9:40 am

    where specifically are you going to be in atlanta? buckhead has an awesome vegan restaurant called veggieland and they have outdoor dining. i’m not vegan or vegetarian and it’s one of my favorite restaurants! i know ya’ll have rusans in charlotte so that you can skip. theres an AMAZING greek restaurant in buckhead as well that serves the best hummus and esme i’ve ever had and i know they have a few veg options. it’s real close to the whole foods!

    i always recommend chow baby as well, in midtown. it’s a create-your-own stirfry and it’s a lot of fun! plus, all you can eat 🙂 if you’re going to be here for lunch, go then, because it’s the same thing at dinner for a few more bucks.

    i will be back with more suggestions!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:43 pm

      We are going to pick up my SIL from the airport so we can go pretty much anywhere (now we are going tomorrow).

      Thanks for the suggestions!

  • Stephanie @cookinfanatic March 13, 2011, 9:40 am

    Jessica at HowSweetEats has the most AMAZING recipes, love everything she makes!

  • Marci March 13, 2011, 9:50 am

    Anything I make by Angela or Emily (Daily Garnish) is always great! I tend to eat heavier breakfast foods for dinner instead of breakfast.

  • AJ @ Flowing to Fifty March 13, 2011, 10:13 am

    Hmmm…might need pancakes for lunch! Enjoy the run. Perhaps we can all send out healing vibes to the folks in Japan while we go about our day today.

  • Susan March 13, 2011, 10:15 am

    I’ve made several recipes from Healthy Food for Living and they always turn out really tasty! I like that most of the recipes make enough for 3-4 servings so we don’t have a ton of left-overs.

  • Baking 'n' Books March 13, 2011, 10:20 am

    I DID forget about the hour – sleeping in was NOT a good idea.

    Hah – I just asked people about their fave recipes on my site! So I’m sure there’ll be a few 🙂

  • Lauren @ChiGalLauren March 13, 2011, 10:49 am

    Your pancakes look so good, and I love sliced bananas, for some reason they just taste better to me than eating a banana whole….weird. I love Mama Pea’s “recipeas” but last week I made Compost Cookies with the recipe from Heather at hangry pants and its my new favorite!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:44 pm

      heheh, recipeas.

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete March 13, 2011, 10:50 am

    I love Angela’s Vegan Alfredo — I make that about once per week. I also love Averie’s (Love Veggies and Yoga) dessert ball recipes — they are delicious and so easy.

  • Caitlyn (The Spoonful of Life) March 13, 2011, 10:51 am

    There are so many great recipes out in the blog world I don’t think I can decide! Anne P’s granola bars certainly top off the list, as to Kath’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi (which I have stashed in the freezer for days I get home late from class)!

  • Maren March 13, 2011, 10:53 am

    Santa Fe casserole, of course!!! And I’m not just saying that because you asked. It’s amazing…and easy to add chicken to for my boyfriend!!

  • Clare @ Fitting It All In March 13, 2011, 10:57 am

    Angela’s Spelt Pancakes are my go-to! I love them, and that it’s a single serving recipe!

  • jen @ taste life March 13, 2011, 11:00 am

    I have too many blog world recipes to think of a favorite off the top of my head!

  • Ashley @ Feeding Ashley March 13, 2011, 11:00 am

    Those look great! I love anything Angela makes shes so creative and everything looks/tastes delicious.

  • Shannon @ A Pinch of Ginger March 13, 2011, 11:05 am

    I love Jenna’s Whole Wheat Walnut Ginger Carrot Cake with Coconut Frosting! I even made it my birthday cake this year 🙂

    BTW your corn tortilla casserole is equally Mazers! We will be rotating that into our favorite easy dinners!

  • Ashley March 13, 2011, 11:08 am

    I had never heard of green monsters until the blog world, and it has become a STAPLE in my diet (I swear, I have 1 almost every single day!) so that would have to be my all-time fave!

  • Camille March 13, 2011, 11:09 am

    I love anything by Jessica on How Sweet It Is. Her recipes are sinfully delicious!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 13, 2011, 11:21 am

    I love the nuttiness (is that even a word??) of spelt flour. My favourite blog recipes change from time to time but the Green Monster is one I never get tired of. There are so many variations but I stick with a basic vanilla and banana one – never gets old!

  • Lauren March 13, 2011, 12:17 pm

    Uhhh crazy that I went to bed last night after looking at pancake recipes and landed on that exact same recipe from Angela…

    They were delicious, no?

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:44 pm

      They were good! We were prob googling it at the same time.

  • Amber K March 13, 2011, 12:27 pm

    I’m making Angela’s creamy avocado pasta for dinner tonight! She is such an amazing cook and everything she makes inspires to try new things out.

  • christine March 13, 2011, 12:33 pm

    Cookie dough ball cookies(I use Chic Life’s recipe) are my all-time favorite and Cake Batter Rice Krispies (How Sweet It Is). I’m pretty much addicted to How Sweet It Is- she’s so not helping me reduce my sugar intake, though 🙂

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:45 pm

      Oh i forgot about cookie dough balls… mmmmmmmmmm.

  • Sana March 13, 2011, 12:33 pm

    I actually did not mind the early wake up! It was weird, because I loveeee sleeping in!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing March 13, 2011, 12:45 pm

    Hmmm.. even though they aren’t technically blog created recipes, Super-Charge Me Cookies are my absolute FAVORITE!

  • Natalia - a side of simple March 13, 2011, 12:52 pm

    Have to say, your grilled elvis is definitely one of my top favorites!!

  • Charlie March 13, 2011, 1:00 pm

    I love those pancakes! They are my go-to pancake recipe!
    Love grilled banana sandwich too :).

  • mary (what's cookin' with mary) March 13, 2011, 1:38 pm

    There are too many to count! I would say that any baked good from Ange (Oh She Glows) is amazing. Anything I’ve ever tried has come out wonderful. BUT, the thing I make the most that I found through blogs is the ‘green monster’. During the summer I have them allll the time.

  • Ellie@fitforthesoul March 13, 2011, 2:43 pm

    they look phat and fat! so yummy 😀 I love the VOOs and I don’t know if I ever told you, but I love your grilled bananas! There are a few more things out there that I’m blanking out with…

  • Emma (Namaste Everyday) March 13, 2011, 3:20 pm

    literally anything from Oh She Glows is my favorite blog recipe. They are awesome!

  • Mary March 13, 2011, 3:27 pm

    The things that have literally changed my life would be Green Monsters and Kath’s oatmeal. Can’t live without them now!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:45 pm

      heheh me too!

  • Kara March 13, 2011, 3:41 pm

    The only blog recipe I’ve ever tried was Jenna’s Engagement Scampi from Eat, Live, Run. If more blogger recipes involved butter, I’d probably make those too 🙂

  • Jumanah @ Healthy Living in the Middle East March 13, 2011, 4:22 pm

    Those pancakes make me hungry looking at them! They look so yummy! I love Kath’s soup recipes. So good!

  • Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) March 13, 2011, 4:41 pm

    The breakfast cookie! My favorite. 😀

    These pancakes sound fabulous. I haven’t had pancakes in ages, but you reminded me that I need to make some this week. 😀

  • Angela March 13, 2011, 4:42 pm

    Oh man Eric is going to be so jealous when he sees this post…! He came down this morning thinking he smelled pancakes, but he was sad to discover I was actually making almond roasted nut butter (he hates nut butter). 😉
    Glad they were enjoyed!
    One of my fav recipes was your grilled banana sandwich…amazing.

  • Rachael March 13, 2011, 5:10 pm

    They sound so much healthier than the pancakes we had this morning. Maybe I’ll try making them next weekend.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 13, 2011, 6:48 pm

    Angela always has such awesome recipes! I also love Kath’s oatmeal pancakes. 😀

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 13, 2011, 9:14 pm

    I love waffles 🙂 I also have really enjoyed veggie lasagnas from the blog world and ideas for cool oatmeal bowls!

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) March 14, 2011, 12:18 am

    Most of the recipes that I make come from blogs 🙂 I absolutely LOVE Angela’s vegan Alfredo … I am not even vegan, but I have made it more than once because it is SO good.

  • Caitlin @ The Caitie Experiment March 14, 2011, 9:20 am

    It’s a little bit disturbing, but my boyfriend is starting to recognize Angela simply by her recipes! Now whenever I make something “odd” that he ends up loving, he throws out the, “You got this recipe from Angela, didn’t you?” Even more embarrassing: I sent my dad the link to the adapted tomato-basil-crouton casserole last summer, and now HE trolls OSG for recipes. #Horrified.

    Your Santa Fe Casserole is actually sitting at home in my freezer, waiting to get in my belly for dinner tomorrow night! It’s definitely another favorite! (Also, bf also now just assumes any running tips I throw out come from “CaitlinHTP” 😉 )

    • Caitlin March 14, 2011, 9:39 am

      This comment made me happy 🙂

  • Sam (the neurotic yogini) March 14, 2011, 1:13 pm

    Love Angela’s recipes.. Always amazes me at how simple they are! Definitely helpful for anyone dabbling w/ veganism! 🙂

  • Dee March 15, 2011, 3:04 pm

    just recently, I’ve discovered @fitnessista’s cinnamon quinoa cookies, and I’ve been making them for everyone. And everyone loves them as much as I do! I have a serious sweet tooth, so it’s nice to find a healthier way to satisfy it.
