Hey, good morning!
I hope you had a good sleep last night. I know today is gonna be a busy and long day for you, so I made yummy breakfast to kick off your day. How does pancakes sound like? Perfect? Good.
This is not the usual pancake recipe that I always make tho. I made it slightly different. I tweaked the recipe a bit… and added Milo. I made Milo oatmeal pancakes!
You do love Milo, don’t you? Yeah, I thought so. We all love Milo.
Oh, and I also added some sliced banana, toasted pecans and maple syrup, just the way you like it.
I hope you’ll enjoy your breakfast.
Have an awesome day ahead and I love you!
And don’t forget to wash your plate when you’ve finished.
K thanks bye.
If I were to go somewhere alone and leave early in the morning, that would probably be the kind of note and breakfast I would give to my husband.
But… I don’t have to go anywhere and leave early, so there was no note. There was still the pancakes tho.
My husband and my girls are huge fans of Milo and they have Milo drink almost every day so I thought, why not try something different and add Milo in pancakes? I made them for my family the other weekend and they were a hit!
Milo Oatmeal Pancakes:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Milo powder
3 tbsp oats
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Whisk the dry ingredients together (flour, Milo, sugar, baking powder and salt) in a large bowl. In a measuring jug (or another bowl), beat the eggs, milk and melted butter.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold them together. Be careful not to overmix the batter because that will make your pancakes tough and rubbery.
Brush your pan lightly with oil and heat it over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and cook about 2 minutes on each side. This recipe makes about 12 pancakes.
Serve with sliced banana, toasted chopped pecans, drizzled with pure maple syrup. You can dust some Milo powder too. Or eat it with ice-cream. Whatever you like!
If you’re out of idea what to make for breakfast or if you’re a fan of Milo, you should try this pancake recipe! You can also look for more breakfast recipes here: http://www.milo.com.my/breakfast/pages/recipes.aspx
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I remember back then when my siblings and I were younger, my mum will make sure that we all have our breakfast before going to school. Toasts, cereal, bihun goreng, nasi goreng, sandwiches. Or at least a cup of hot Milo if we were running late. We rarely went to school with an empty stomach because my mum said, “Bila perut kosong, otak susah nak beri tumpuan”. She is so right!
Apparently, breakfast is more important for kids because their growing bodies and developing brains require regular intake of food and skipping breakfast would create physical, intellectual and behavioral problems for them. So make sure you feed your kids every morning!
I love to start my day with a good breakfast and sometimes on weekends, I would indulge myself and my family with yummy breakfast (like pancakes). If I don’t start my day right by skipping breakfast or even have late breakfast, I would get major headache or stomachache and that would ruin the rest of my day. Breakfast is really a must for me. I hope it is for you too.
Speaking of which, Milo had a contest where people can share their breakfast goal on their website. The contest has ended tho, but you can show your support by voting for the most inspirational goal here. Voting period is from 29th April till 12th May 2013. You check out this website for more info: https://www.milo.com.my/breakfast/pages/support-now.aspx.
There will also be Malaysia Breakfast Day to celebrate the most important meal of the day and to encourage Malaysians to start their day right. The event will start with Malaysia Breakfast Day Run, followed by games, performances and of course breakfast! It will be held at University Putra Malaysia on 19th May 2013 at 7 am.
