Nutty Oatmeal Banana Pancakes


    Nutty Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

    A bowl of sticky oatmeal isn’t going to lure your camping partners out of their  warm sleeping bags, but these flapjacks will. Flax, oats, and nuts elevate the  nutrition of camp-friendly, just-add-water pancake mix. Chocolate lovers can add  a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder to the mix.


    3/4 cup (180 mL) complete natural pancake mix
    1/3 cup (80 mL) quick-cook  rolled oats
    1/4 cup (60 mL) flax powder
    1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
    1/2 cup  (125 mL) walnut pieces or chopped hazelnuts
    Pinch of salt
    1 1/2 cups (350  mL) water
    1/3 cup (80 mL) pure maple syrup
    2 bananas, sliced thinly

    At home
    In reusable container, toss together pancake mix, oats,  flax, cinnamon, nuts, and salt.

    At camp
    Lightly grease skillet and place on camp stove. Pour water  into container with pancake batter ingredients, and mix.

    Spoon about 1/3 cup (80 mL) batter for each pancake onto heated skillet. Let  pancakes cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Repeat with  remaining batter.
    Top with maple syrup and sliced banana.

    Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Cilantro

    Yogurt completely transforms the texture of these chicken thighs, making them tender and flavourful with bright notes of lemon and cilantro. Ideal for a day trip, these can be marinated in the morning and cooked in the evening, but they also work well when cooked in advance and packed for a picnic to be eaten cold. Marinade mentions Marinate chicken thighs for anywhere between 4 and 24 hours. Discard excess marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken. It should not be consumed uncooked.
