Breakfast Recipe Ideas


I'm still on vacation and this week I wanted to share with you a few breakfast recipes.  My typical Menu Monday does not include breakfast meals.  So I thought I'd share a few ideas today.

I've always liked this recipe because it's something you can make and have on hand all week long.

Refrigerator Pancake Batter



2T yeast
½ cup warm water
4 cups flour
1 ½ t baking soda
2t baking powder
6T sugar
2t salt
6 eggs
½ cup olive oil
3 cups buttermilk

In a small bowl combine yeast and warm water and let this sit for a few minutes to activate. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar & salt. In a medium bowl beat eggs and add oil and buttermilk. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk/egg/oil mixture to the flour. Stir to combine.

Cook these pancakes at a slightly lower temp and a little longer cooking time than regular pancakes.

The batter can be stored in the fridge for a week or so. Make sure to store it in a bowl or container that allows room for the batter to expand in size.  Because it has yeast in it, it will bubble and grow.  Give it a stir before using each time.

Whole Wheat Honey Raisins Scones

 

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 T baking powder
¼ t baking soda
¼ t salt
6 T butter
1 cup raisins
¼ c honey
2 T yogurt
2 eggs

In a large bowl mix together the pastry flour, baking powder, soda and salt.  Chop up the butter into squares and add to the flour mix.  mix in the butter by using your fingers and working the butter into the flour mixture until the mix looks like coarse crumbs.  In a 1 cup measuring cup measure out the honey and add the yogurt and the eggs.  Mix this well.   Add to flour/butter mixture.  Stir until all has just combined.  Try not to over mix this.  It may still be a bit wet or sticky, but that is ok. 

 Lightly flour the counter top and dump the scone mix onto this and flatten them out to a circle that is about 8 inches.  I sprinkle a little more flour on the top if still feels sticky.  Using a butter knife cut the scones into 8 wedges. 

 Lightly spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and set each scone wedge onto the tray leaving about 1 inch space between them.

Bake at 375 for about 18 to 20 minutes.  Enjoy!!  Makes 8 scones.

Crockpot Granola

This is a simple way to make some nutritional granola.  Store bought granola seems to have a lot of sugar in it.  My recipe is made with honey which is a better alternative, I think.  Plus the recipe is simple and does not need a lot of babysitting while it cooks.



5 c oats
½ c honey
¼ c coconut oil
Goodies.. raisins, coconut, nuts, dried fruits, etc..

Put oats in a large bowl.  in a small saucepan heat coconut oil until it melts and add honey just to warm it up.  This makes the honey easier to pour.   Pour this over the oats and using your clean hands mix it all up well.  You can use a spoon, but I find it really works better with your hands. 

Put this mixture into your crockpot.  Turn on low.  Leave the lid of the crockpot slightly ajar to allow steam to escape.  Cook for 3 hours stirring occasionally. 

When the granola is done, put in a bowl and add as little or as much of your choice of goodies.  Allow it to cool and then store in a container of some sort or a zip type bag.
