I am not a typical person, or maybe I am a typical woman? What I mean is that there are times when I can hardly understand my own behaviors. For instance it took me 5 months in South America to see that I want to learn spanish. It took me 1 year in Berlin plus an idea to move somewhere else to start really learning German. I am attending an intensive course with people who are excited about this language and whenever they ask me why didn’t I learn it earlier, I have no idea what to say. Simply “because”.
So each day I bike to attend my course and each day I bother people on a street and am trying to have a chat (some things don’t change). Some people like it, some people are very difficult to understand. But one thing is true - living in Berlin while understanding what people around are talking about is so much more fun ;)
Going back to the recipe - it is tasty and healthy. I make my own pumpkin squash, as I believe in making your own ingredients and I can not find cans with it in Berlin. It’s easy, just bake pieces of pumpkin until it’s soft. The rest is very easy.
- You will need for 8-10 pancakes:
- 1/2 cup oat flour (grounded natural oats)
- 1/2 cup whole grain flour
- 1/2 cup pumpkin squash
- 1 egg
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup
- 2 tbsp butter or a coconut oil
- 1/2 apple, cut in small cubes
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1/2 cup milk For a topping (optional ):
- 1 apple
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp thyme
Mix all ingredients for pancakes in a bowl and fry over a medium heat on 1 tsp of oil. To make a pumpkin squash I cut pumpkin and bake it in 200*C for about 10-15 minutes (maybe you have a better idea). Then I place pieces in a cup and smash it with a fork (easy one).
You can serve your pancakes with fried apple and a maple syrup. Cut apple in 8 equal pieces and fry on 1 tsp of oil, with honey and thyme until soft.
