Your Sunday Morning plan:

EAT:

These Cardamom-scented oatmeal pancakes in the New York Times sound far too good to pass up.

You’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups cooked oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried apricots
  • Vegetable or olive oil, for frying
  • Honey, for serving

Combine flours, oats, almonds, baking powder, cardamom and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the egg and milk together, then stir in the cooked oatmeal and apricots. Add this to the dry mixture. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add a thin layer of vegetable oil. Spoon on the pancake batter and flip pancakes after 2-3 minutes. Keep cooked pancakes warm in a 200 degree oven while you cook the rest. Serve with honey.

DO:

Make this coffee playdough from used grounds and let the kids play happily while you enjoy the lingering coffee scent. We recommend savouring a latte or two during the playdough play session.

We like Art and Reusing’s recipe:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 cup used coffee grounds
  • 1/2 cup cool coffee (approx – depending on how wet the used coffee grounds are)

Mix ingredients and knead into a dough
