Aloha from Hawaii! I took a really last minute trip… like 2 day last minute trip, to visit a friend and well see the island of Oahu. Did I mention my flight there was free?!? There are perks to having a deployed husband I suppose. Now I can’t say the same about my flight home but I’m praying really hard the jet doesn’t break and is good to leave Hawaii in a timely matter. However, I won’t be mad if its delayed a day or two or seven! 🤷🏻♀️
I’m super pumped to be with my friend again who lived 4 houses down from me and her little family. Tiffany moved away about 18 months ago but left a void in my life. She was my go to girl for afternoon coffee/wine dates, which always depended upon the mood and topic of conversation, feed me when my husband was deployed on my birthday, ask me to photograph her newborn son even though I’ve never held something that new before. So now I traveled 1/2 way across an ocean to have those dates again and to love on her family in H A W A I I !!!!
Y’all I have never been to Hawaii, my husband has been here about 4 times and a few of those times got extended because the jet broke. He’s brought home cases of pineapples and I hope to be able to do the same! But enough about Hawaii (I’ll be sharing more photos and how I so badly want to never leave in posts to come)…. Onto a less tropical recipe.
This feels all sorts of wrong to write this post now… I feel like I should be sharing with you about 2 ingredient pineapple pancakes! But I don’t think the would taste that great so 2 ingredient pumpkin pancakes it is! Plus its that time of year where we go crazy for all things pumpkin for 2 months and then forget about that delightful squash until next October.
This easy recipe kind of came out of necessity because I was really craving pancakes but did not have almond flour and was stranded without a vehicle. Oh the joys of a one car family! So I because resourceful and made pancakes out of only two ingredients… eggs & pumpkin puree. Oh and a little bit of cinnamon and salt (because everything is better with cinnamon and salt!).
I made silver dollar pancakes, because these are a little tough to flip because they are so… the word everyone hates… moist. So smaller is better with these pancakes, they won’t end up all over your stove top.
They are a great carb free and dairy free alternative to their sugary counterpart. These pancakes would be great for toddlers if you don’t want to feed them sugar and starchy laden pancakes. I would love to know what you think of these little guys! And be sure to come back for more Hawaii trip updates! I’m never leaving! Just kidding! Hopefully our next PCS will be to here!
