Do-nut sleep on the Danish

Call me old fashioned but I prefer a good ol’ Danish before a Doughnut ANYDAY. (I’ll be capitalizing both pastries throughout this post to honor their history and continuing life) |Yes foods are as important as people to me| **Find my favorite Danishes on the bottom** Theoretically both of these pastries that were created from…

Oatmeal Banana Pancakes 

Flour-less Oatmeal Banana Pancakes are perfect for an evening breakfast on a snow day! .. or for a midnight snack or for actual breakfast! Not to mention 10 month old Baby Kai loved them as finger food. Ingredients: – 2 cups old-fashioned oats – 1 ripe banana  – 1 cup coconut milk – 2 large…
