Apple Oat Pancakes are a healthy breakfast option! Made without butter or sugar, these healthy pancakes are amazing and perfect for a Holiday Breakfast!
It is official, I have no will power. None.
I am not even through my Christmas shopping (I might be relying on some of these!) Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Foodies and I am thinking of the Christmas menu..
It was my birthday on the weekend past (okay, it wasn’t the actual day but the festival of ‘Kirsten’s Birthday’ was in its last few days of dragging out) and all I did was eat. Eat all of the cheesecake…
No joke, I am surprised I don’t look like a cheesecake. I sat there and cleaned the whole thing up while the others fell asleep in the movie. I’d love to tell you what the movie was, but while they were asleep I was too busy scoffing the cheesecake to take notice. Since I can’t remember, I’d probably have fallen asleep too… if I wasn’t high on sugar. Ergh. Worst part?
If you gave me a cheesecake again today- I’d eat the lot again. My cheesecake regret lasted… approximately 2 minutes.
So really, it is no surprise that at Christmas… well, you might as well roll me out the door.
Christmas dinner is always the same- schnitzels, Hungarian salads, ham… bread (what would a Hungarian Christmas be without bread and loads of butter?!)
Add in dessert … eek! And that is Christmas #1… I haven’t even been to my Dad’s yet- that is the next day!
It is fair to say that day #2 is almost just as big… add Nan’s Christmas pudding and OH my!
Even with all that food…
What is Christmas without a Christmas breakfast though?? I make these at home when I am craving pancakes but don’t want to feel the same regret as the cheesecake…!
They are light and made without butter or sugar (however, feel free to add!) and make a fabulous breakfast for all times of the year… or quick snack (I am such a shocking snacker!)
Tell me, have you got any Christmas food will power? If you do… wanna share some?!
