Well, I have been living in Peru for just over 2 months now and something from home that I have really missed is the accessibility of the ingredients I am used to at home, not to mention an oven. Don't get me wrong, I love the fresh produce I get at the market every day. I love the simplicity of my meals. But every now and then I just want the comforts of my own kitchen, ingredients and all.
So, here's what I came up with. It's super complicated.
Make your favorite pancake mix.
Crush up a few Oreos, one for every 2-3 pancakes you plan on making. More if you're feeling indulgent. Mix them into your pancake mix.
Pour the batter onto the griddle and continue as you normally would to make your pancakes, flipping when golden brown.
For some extra sweetness, top with maple syrup of course.
Okay, so not the fanciest or healthiest. Or even super creative. But, it sure hit the spot needing something that tastes like home. Oreos are Oreos, no matter where you are in the world.
