Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

Tasty Easy no flour pancakes and snow days - December 18, 2016


We have had many snow days in Coquitlam in the last few weeks. This is not normal usually it snows once a year and its gone the next day. The temperatures are remaining low this year and although pretty it makes commuting difficult. I have cancelled attending a few things as it is too difficult to commute we get wet snow here so there is a lot of ice everywhere.  Downtown Vancouver was a little different you can't even tell there was any snow there some days were even nice and sunny with temperatures of -1 or -2 compared to -7 or less in other areas. I am grateful that we now have a skytrain close by as the path to get to the skytrain is cleared so I am able to commute much easier than before.

As it is holiday season with lots of eating and treats here is something that feels luxurious but is actually easy and healthy. I saw the recipe in a magazine and I went from memory when making them so adjusted things to my taste.











Easy No Flour Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1/4 of a cup Almond Butter
2 eggs


The recipe said  to mash the banana with a fork then mix the other ingredients. I just put everything in the magic bullet. I couldn't remember the rest of the recipe so i put ghee on my griddle pan and cooked like I would any pancake. The first one I had the heat too high as this is a little softer than a regular pancake so it cooked to fast and fell apart. After I  lowered the heat and poured the batter a little thicker they turned out like crepes in texture. They tasted like a banana pancake a little sweet with nothing on them but i like that. Add a little nut butter, honey or maple syrup to the top and these are a great breakfast.

Update
I made it a second time this time I added macadamia nuts to it. Turned out much better than the first time.
