My favorite pancake recipe

Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfasts, it's super quick to make and so so yummy, fit to make any morning an amazing one. Whilst my dad is the best pancake maker I know, I didn't earn his skills. My recipes never turned out right, they always burned, the batter got too thick, or didn't cook evenly, and that is, until this one. I literally tried every recipe I found, and suddenly, one random night I mixed a few ingredients in a bowl out of the blue and my pancakes turned out right. Heck, was I excited!! Excited enough to want to make them everyday and of course, tell you guys all about it!

This recipe is: 
- vegan
- soft & sweet
- cinammon flavored
- perfect with any topping

- 1.5 cups of oat flour
- 1 cup of oat milk
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar
- 1 tbsp of maple syrup for topping

- Add all the ingredients into a blender
- Blend until batter is slightly runny
- Heat a non-stick pan on low heat
- Pour the pancakes and wait for bubbles to rise
- Flip over and wait another 2 mins until done

Cold Coffee

Since I've gotten more into writing these last months I felt the need to have a space where I could scribble all my notes and things I want to remember down. But I didn't want just a random notepad or a few corners of my already too used notebook. I wanted something unique and slightly antique, something that looked like there was a little magic inside. I started searching and when I stumbled upon this one, I knew it was the one.

The vintage, late eighteenth-century look with the wrap-around key is perfect. The pages have that brownish earth tone like the color of spilled coffee and the cover is made of faux leather, my happiness is complete. I'm going to dedicate the first half of the journal to write down my notes, dream experiences, and plans and the other half will be for poetry. I was actually thinking about buying an ink pen to go with it but since I'm a little clumsy I would probably tilt the ink all over the pages and it also wouldn't be very practical to take around. 

On the first page I typed out a quote that I came up with which is ''no sky, no earth. yet still, wonderland''. The word wonderland makes me think of a place where anything is possible, somewhere full of mysteries, and that's exactly the feeling I want to bring out. On the second page I added a piece of dried lavender and on the third page, the writing begins! I also typed out a few of my poems already and I can actually share some if you'd guys like to see that. Just comment below for me :)
