Sesame Honey Pancakes

Last night, I took myself to a yoga class that was all about heart opening poses (♥♥♥!) and when I walked back to my car I passed a wine + cheese shop advertising a Tuesday date night deal, a donut “dispensary,” and a brewery where people were sitting out on the patio (in February!) and ordering from the food truck parked out front.  And I thought to myself “Gosh, I love this city!”  I love that people are out on a Tuesday night, doing whatever makes their heart happy and I love that I get to be one of those people.

And today, well I’m happy that it’s Wednesday, that I’m going to the library after work then having a lady date with Jenn and I’m happy I had these pancakes for breakfast.


Sesame Honey Pancakes (serves 1, but can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled)

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • A good pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (+ a little more) milk
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Blueberries and maple syrup for serving (optional, but just do it)

Mix flour, baking powder, sesame seeds and salt together in a bowl. In a measuring cup, combine milk, honey and tahini and stir until honey and tahini are fully mixed in.  Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined.  Grease pan with coconut oil, then pour batter on to make two large pancakes or three medium pancakes.  Top with blueberries and maple syrup.

  1. Hey!
    It’s my birthday this week and I’d like to go to a nice restaurant that is close to other bars. Also caters to vegetarians since a couple of my friends are vegetarians. I know how much you love to eat out in Denver so I’d love to hear your suggestions! I’m open to any cuisine really 🙂

    • Oh my gosh, I’m so honored that you’d ask me! If you’re looking for something downtown, I’d check out Ophelia’s (it gets busy so make a reservation!), Vesta Dipping Grill or 9th Door. OR you could go to the Five Points area and hit up Work & Class, Cart-Driver or Americatus. There’s a handful of bars and breweries in that area that are really cool. If you’re going with a big group, W&C/Cart-Driver might not be your best bets, but if it’s a small group, those are two of my very favorite restaurants in Denver. Last but not least, Steuben’s, Ace and Park & Co. are all restaurant/bars right in a row and you could eat and drink at any or all of those places! Sorry this turned into a short novel 🙂 Happy Birthday!!!
