Recipe: Eggless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes
When Daniel from danielfooddiary first emailed me about a month back and asked if I was interested in joining a Singapore bloggers initiative called The #CookForFamily Initiative which was created for the sole reason of spreading the spirit of cooking with and for your family, I was definitely sold by the idea.
His plan was to get at least 100 bloggers involved.
To pick a day in July to cook a meal for their family or loved ones, then blog, tweet and instagram about their cooking, experience and thoughts all on the same day, which is TODAY – 6th August 2012 (Monday), with the hashtag #CookForFamily.
I was initially quite apprehensive at the thought of cooking because while baking was right up my alley, cooking certainly was not.
Disclaimer: I am NOT a bad cook… or at least I dont think I am…
But to cook for my family?
People that I love and people that I certainly wanted to serve only the best to..
I was not so confident about that.
So I wrecked my brains and thought long and hard before I decided on frying up some PANCAKES!
No added sugar
And had some chocolate chips for the sweet tooth
Definitely healthy, yummy and hearty for that lazy Sunday morning where everyone sleeps in!
And seeing everyone’s satisfied and contented faces after the breakfast pancakes were polished off?
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! :D
