VeganMoFo 2012 & Cinnamon Flapjacks

September 7th, 2012 10:38 am by Kelly Garbato

In case you haven’t heard, this year VeganMoFo is going down in October. (Yay! No Thanksgiving carcasses in my VeganMoFo blog feed! Seriously omnis wtf?) Isa & company were nice enough to call it early, which I really appreciate because PREPARATION. I already have my menus planned out, and I’m EVEN DOING A THEME! You can tell from the all-caps that I’m entirely too excited about this. Also, I love to eat; eating is my favorite.

As for the theme, I’m pairing up meals and desserts with music. What it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in sex, nooch, and rock n’ roll. Fun times!

Added bonus: this year I’m using VMF as an opportunity to try out some new recipes from all the vegan cookbooks I’ve been hoarding, but rarely use. I went through about eight of the newest acquisitions and compiled a list of recipes I’d like to try; I ended up with about four times as many ideas as I needed, no surprise there. (My eyes, they’re nearly as big as my stomach.) Then I matched my top picks with some of my favorite songs, and now I have 42 different foods to make in just 31 days! (Some of the recipes are legit meals, with sides and everything. Look at me, I’m a grownup!) Can we say “frazzled”?

Anyway, in the meantime I’m trying out some of the “rejected” recipes. Like these Cinnamon Flapjacks from American Vegan Kitchen! (I was lucky enough to win a free copy from the author, Tamasin Noyes, over the summer. Shake enough giveaway trees and something’s bound to fall on your head!)

Made with vanilla yogurt and sweetened with maple syrup, these pancakes are seriously delish. They’re light and fluffy, yet surprisingly…substantial. (Dog, I make the worst food critic. I don’t know how to describe all these food feelings I’m having!) Served with strawberries and blueberries because I’ve got to eat as many of these suckers as I can before they disappear forever. Okay, not forever, just until next June-ish. It just feels like next year.
