i recently just met allyn through the winter recipe exchange that she hosted with pizelles, and i must say, she is a sweetheart! she is a foodie just like me and every time i look at her blog, i’m always drooling over her fantastic food photography! thanks allyn for kicking off the guest posts!
hello sandy a la mode readers! it’s allyn of all things ami keeping you company while sandy is enjoying her winter vacay. i want to thank her for the invitation to guest post on her inspired blog of fun, food, photo + craft. food + photography seem to be universal common ground for many of us and it’s most certainly true of what sandy + i both enjoy.
today i am sharing with you one of my favorite breakfast recipes. when considering what to mail for mine & brandi’s | pizzelles winter recipe exchange, i had one go-to dessert and one go-to breakfast item i wanted to share. since i mailed away the dessert, i’m going to share my breakfast with you. honey whole wheat pancakes. i add chocolate chips before flipping for my petite ami.s + serve maple syrup in a small container on the side. the heart shaped cookie cutters and dusting of confectioner’s sugar make the breakfast feast even more special. hope you like them! happy holidays!
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup lowfat buttermilk
- 1/2 cup nonfat milk
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour through salt). In another medium bowl, beat together the eggs, nonfat milk, buttermilk, honey and vanilla.
Preheat a large nonstick griddle or skillet over a medium-low flame. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing only enough to combine them. The batter will be somewhat lumpy. Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup pour the batter onto the griddle or skillet. Flip the pancake when the top is bubbling and it is golden brown on the bottom.
Yum yum yum times a million! Thank you Allyn for the recipe! I’ll definitely try this out! 🙂

Ooh – thanks for sharing this recipe – I’ve starred it on my Google Reader.
And I don’t think it’s complete without making them heart-shaped! I’m a firm believer that breakfast is meant to be eaten all day!!!
I am a sucker for heart shaped food and it looks even sweeter in Nolan’s little hands.
