Sunday Morning Breakfast

While I love going out for a good breakfast, I like cooking at home even more.  Today I'm sharing one of my favorite lazy Sunday morning breakfast recipes from Sarabeth's Good Morning Cookbook with a few of my own enhancements - Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes! I chose to add a dash of ground nutmeg, bananas, and blueberries to my batch this time around, but I like to switch it up depending on what I'm in the mood for. Try out my go-to pancake recipe below, and let me know in the comments what you like to add in the batter!


Sarabeth's Good Morning Cookbook

Gluten Free Oatmeal Pancakes


  • 1 cup GF flour

  • 1 cup oatmeal

  • 1 tbs baking powder

  • 2 tbs sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 1/2 cups milk

  • 2 large eggs, separated

  • Dash of ground nutmeg

  • Kerrygold butter

  • Warm maple syrup


  • In the Vitamix, blend the oatmeal on high

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the GF flour, oatmeal, baking powder, sugar, dash of nutmeg, and salt to combine, and make a well in the center.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the milk and egg yolks until mixed

  • Pour into the well

  • Using a wooden spoon, stir just until the batter is mixed

  • Do not overbeat - a few tiny lumps of flour may remain

  • In a small bowl, beat the egg whites just until soft peaks form

  • Gently fold the whites into the batter & add in bananas and blueberries
  • Preheat the griddle and grease with Kerrygold butter

  • Pour the batter onto the griddle (about 1/3 cup for each pancake), leaving an inch or so between the pancakes

  • Cook until tiny bubbles appear on the surface of the batter (about 1 minute)

  • Carefully flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden brown (about 1 more minute)

  • Serve immediately with the syrup and Kerrygold on the side

  • Optional: Add a dash of ground nutmeg, bananas, and blueberries

Carly Grace Milyo

Born in New York City,  Carly Grace grew up in Atlanta and graduated from The Westminster Schools.  Carly received her Bachelor of Science in Human Development, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Virginia Tech in 2012. During her college career, Carly began practicing yoga as an escape from her intense ACC Cheerleading training. The rigor and requirements Carly upheld as an ACC athlete combined with the social expectations and action packed schedule expected of an Alpha Phi left Carly depleted both physically and mentally.  Before Carly found yoga, she used running, partying with friends, and restricting her diet to maintain a sense of control in her life. It was Carly's true desire to find more purposeful and authentic friendships and to invest her time in cultivating her greater well-being and spirituality that lead her to yoga. 

The creativity and physical challenge of yoga captivated and inspired Carly. Yoga was the first thing Carly practiced where the perfect-ten mentality was not required; in fact, perfection is the antithesis of yoga principles.  After hanging up her poms poms and retiring from her ACC Cheerleading career, Carly quickly found herself  invested in the In Balance Yoga Community in Blacksburg, VA.  With encouragement and affirmation from Studio Owner, Becky Crigger, Carly set out for New York City to train with Dana Trixie Flynn at Laughing Lotus Love Skool.

Yoga Alliance 200 E-RYT, Carly has studied and practiced with many influencers and teachers all over the United States.  Carly currently teaches Thunderbolt Power Yoga®;  a powerful alignment based vinyasa flow inspired by some of her greatest influencers including, Dana Trixie Flynn and Baron Baptiste.  Carly infuses creative ideas and sequencing into her classes. Her purpose as a teacher is to inspire people to move like themselves. Carly is committed to helping students be audaciously playful in both their practice and in their lives. 

You can catch Carly Grace teaching at her studio Thunderbolt Power Yoga, at off-site events such as the infamous FIT Yoga Series with Carly Grace at W Atl Buckhead, at music festivals, corporate conferences, and more!  Be sure to look out for Carly's quarterly Boombox Power Yoga® Class offered alongside a live DJ, accompanied by her pink boombox, and enhanced with a 16 inch disco ball. 

In the mean time, you can follow her adventures on instagram (@yoga__barbie) or give her a wave when you see her drive by in her infamous pink jeep!
