Teddy Bear Breakfast

March 8, 2011

If you go down the stairs today, you’re sure of a big surprise…

That’s the way the Teddy Bears have their pic-nic!

It seems cannibalistic, but I assured the bears that this guy was just for play.

Matt made a giant Kodiak cake

And mine turned into a bear with a bowtie – completely by accident!

Spread with some nut butters, banana, sprinkles and a choco chip face!

Beaker, Bocker and Churton LOVED them! I enjoyed eating them too (there was also pumpkin and butterscotch chips in the batter!) but would you believe that this was TOO sweet for me?! It left me overwhelmed in the palate.

It’s lovely out in the woods today..

Mmm, I started my morning with a chocolate topped buckwheat pancake. Definitely a great way to “face” the day, though now I’m ready for breakfast #2, muesli with blueberries :)

I scammed my husband into having pancakes for dinner last week for National Pancake day…I don’t think he will all for it again. These look like a cute/festive way to start the day!

That pretty much looks amazing. Chocolate and peanut butter? Holla! Best flavor combo…at least sweetness-wise.

I love the bow tie! We used to always make Mickey Mouse pancakes (does everyone do that?) with two small pancakes as the “ears.” I had Kodiak cakes for breakfast yesterday. I can’t get over how good they are. I keep forgetting to add pumpkin!

Bears got good taste.

I was wondering if you find pancakes are a sweeter meal or not? I love them but sometimes they sit heavy – could be all the syrup ;)

Kath, you’re always bringing up childhood songs I haven’t heard in decades–I love it! I agree with you on things being too sweet at times. Since I cut out artificial sweeteners and cut back on sugar, I’m amazed how often I can go without it.

Reply

57 Christin@purplebirdblog March 8, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Adorable! My mom would make me yogurt faces… she’d cover a plate with yogurt and make a face out of sliced up fruit… I always loved that!

Love your posts about the bears. Those pancakes look really good!

59 Namaste Gurl March 8, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I’ve never tried kodiak cakes– are they whole grain and unprocessed? I always just make my own pancake batter, but there’s not always time for that- that’s why I make them so rarely!

Reply

60 KathEats March 8, 2011 at 1:20 pm

They are whole grain – and super fluffy! The only ‘con’ might be that they contain powdered milk and egg whites, but I still see those as real food.
