Call me what you wish. When dark clouds cascade the skies and there’s a threat of rain, I think of food. So, despite the gloomy forecast for the day, I laced up my walking shoes and managed to  break a sweat on my jogging trail.

As I dodged raindrops, I smiled. One major thing was on my mind. It was a healthy and wholesome stack of pancakes. When I got back to base, I fired up my skillet and made a free-flow batter with these ingredients:

  • whole wheat flour/sprinkle of all-purpose flour
  • baking soda
  • old-fashioned oats
  • leftover roasted pumpkin
  • over ripened banana
  • powdered ginger
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • melted butter
  • olive oil
  • a sprinkle of salt
  • dollop of sour cream
  • splash of vanilla
  • egg

Topped my pancakes with some fresh blueberries in a circle. With the drizzle of a little light syrup, my golden cakes were ready to be devoured. They were like sunshine on my cloudy and precipitous day.
