I’m trying to eat less flour/wheat/processed wheat for the wellbeing of my stomach – which has been on a damned war path recently – and thus this idea was born!
1 heaping scoop vanilla protein powder
3 tbsp egg whites
dash almond milk
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
heaps of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
Cook over medium/high heat… they cook quick!
I like mine with a few spritzes of spray butter and a glob of Sunbutter.
I apologize for the quality.. I ate them too fast, so I snapped a blackberry picture!
They were a bit on the dry side, so I want to alleviate that later. However, this is a great start!
I’m headed up to my favorite place in the world… Put-in-Bay, a beautiful island on Lake Erie!
Heineman Winery, here I come!
As most of you know, I don’t measure a thing.. but here are my guestimates, in case you want to attempt to reconstruct this delicious breakfast!
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
- 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp Agave
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- dash milk (to bring to correct consistency)
- heaps of cinnamon
- 1 small super ripe banana, mashed
My batter looked like this…
Heat skillet to medium, and coat with nonstick spray. These pancakes are pretty thick, so they’ll take a bit to cook through. Make sure not to make them too big, because they’re notoriously hard to flip if they’re large.
^^ this one I made without adding the banana, just to see the color and consistency, for future knowledge.
The top pancake now has the banana in it! I found it harder to flip when the banana was added, since the batter was heavier.
Note that I use “small” plates. This is not a traditional 10” plate. It’s a side-dish plate.
I always like my pancakes with an egg, because I prefer yoke as the “syrup.” Weird, right?
Anyhow. This could easily feed two, or one very-hungry-Brie.
Which might have been a mistake, because I just recalled that I’m going out to lunch at 1 with some friends in Georgetown… ooops.
Cue Jack Johnson song…
Who doesn’t love banana pancakes, right?
I’m currently trying to clean out my pantry items (since I move away in 2 weeks), and thus ‘garbage’ pancakes are born. Okay, not really garbage, but an interesting assortment!
This could easily serve two people, or one very hungry individual.
- 1 banana, ripe
- 1/3c bisquick or whole wheat flour
- big dash of baking soda
- big dash of cinnamon
- 1/4c dry oats
- 1/2c egg whites
- dash water
Smash your ‘naner, then add wet and dry ingredients, mixing evenly. It’ll be lumpy because of the banana, but that’s the best part!
Cook on a sprayed griddle on medium. This made three mammoth pancakes. I topped with spray butter and a bit of honey… and coffee on the side!
