Happy holidays from rainy Vancouver!
Unlike the rest of Canada, which is blanketed in pillowy soft sheets of snow this time of year, here it’s dark, grey and drizzly. Nothing says Christmas like cloud coverage, am I right? ;) To bring a little bit of holiday sparkle to this dark time of year, I love to start the mornings off with hearty dishes spiked with the warming spices of cinnamon and ginger. Cue the gingerbread muffins, eggnog pancakes, and speculaas oatmeal! While a cookie oatmeal sounds super-decadent, this version has no actual cookies in it but instead relies on the hearty flavours of the cookies to bring a little breakfast magic to the table. Using natural sweeteners, whole-grains, and fibre-rich ingredients, it will help balance out all those extra decadent dishes that will garnish your morning breakfast spread….
