So this is a first...
Actually, to be completely honest, this is the second time I started a blog. When I started my first blog (titled the same name mind you. I love puns so it did not get old) I had no idea that I did not have to take myself all that seriously. I was shooting photos on my DSLR, editing them extensively, and often collapsing from exhaustion. I thought that there was no was no way I could maintain a blog with the academic pressures of school and social commitments. Thankfully, for you and for me, I realize that the goal of blog writing is not to assure you have 29428395829 posts (exact counts, people) a week, each with a radically new recipe idea. Also, more thankfully for you than for me, I graduated college in May and have a lot of free time on my hands. This is to inspire you to cook healthy, delicious, plant based and simple meals with flavors you might not always expect. This is, if you think about it, a behind the scenes of the Instagram. You get to learn all of my secrets.
So let's get started.
This pancake recipe was the first recipe I developed when I was in college. It took about 100 tries to get it just right, but once I did, it was love at first eat-the-entire-stack-in-five-minutes. Most protein pancakes I run across on the internet have loads of protein powder in them and, while I can rave all I want about protein powder, I was looking for something a little more reminiscent of the pancakes my dad made every Saturday when I was a kid. Buckwheat pancakes, brimming with bananas and blueberries was a smell that I always prayed for every day of the week. This version is a little healthier and is perfect for a post workout meal. I love smothering mine with greek yogurt and trader joe's (get used to him. he'll be here a lot) pumpkin or fig butter and topping it with whatever fresh fruit I have on hand.

Let's be real, toppings are the best part anyway.
