Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes & Weekend Highlights

Pancakes are my favorite. Especially after sleeping in and having nothing on the agenda except for playing outside and spending time with wonderful people on a beautiful Charleston day. My sister and I whipped these amazing pancakes up on Saturday morning and they turned out beautifully and gave us plenty of energy for a walk in the park after breakfast!


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes

Ingredients:
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
3 tbsp honey
1 cup almond milk

Directions:
1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl
2. Add the wet ingredients and whisk until combined and batter is thin enough to pour
3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray (or brush with coconut oil)
4. Pour the pancake batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles form. Flip pancakes and cook on skillet for an additional ~1 minute.

This weekend’s highlights:

1. Sunset chasin’ with my sweet sister Megan. On Friday night, we raced to the Pitt Street Pier in Mt. Pleasant to chase down what was making to be a beautiful sunset. And man did we catch it!

2.  “Walking” in the park. Hampton Park, located in Downtown Charleston, has lots of great walking trails as well as “fit circuits” located all throughout the park. Megan and I were fascinated by the many fitness challenges. Example A: the vault 
3.  This cupcake from Sweet Radish Bakeshop, Charleston’s only gluten-free bakery. I have been wanting to go in here for quite some time now and it did not disappoint! Sweet Radish has a wide variety of delicious gluten-free baked goods, you can’t even taste a difference. Added bonus: this cupcake had the perfect cake/icing ratio… not gluten related but still a plus! YUM. 
4.  Hannah & Barrett’s oyster roast/wedding shower. On Saturday night we celebrated the soon-to-be newlyweds with oysters and corn hole! My kind of celebration. 
 5. Boat nights with these crazies. Finding the next adventure is never an issue.

I’m sad the weekend is over but am excited to share some fresh workouts, recipes, and happenings with you over the next few days! 
Much love,
Emily
