Hi Happy Sunday! I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Busy weekend as always of course! Saturday was date night and the hubby and I went out for a very tasty meal to a fancy Mexican restaurant called Anejo. It was nice to get out and be with the adults and have a yummy meal. After our meal we went and saw the Wedding Ringer. It was pretty funny, laughed a lot and we enjoyed ourselves.
I also made a pretty epic batch of pancakes on Saturday morning for breakfast as my post workout meal.
Banana Bread Protein Pancakes! These are still pretty healthy but would not be something I eat everyday. I love to make pancakes on the weekends when I have more time.
Banana Bread Protein Pancakes
1 cup of buttermilk protein pancake mix (such as Flapjacked or Pumped Up Pancakes)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 large egg
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
1 large or 2 small ripe bananas, mashed
Sugar Free Maple Syrup for topping!
1. Whisk the pancake mix, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the oats.
2. In another bowl, whisk the egg and then stir in the buttermilk, vanilla and mashed bananas, mixing well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. If the batter is too thick at a little more buttermilk to get the right consistency. Let the batter sit while you heat the griddle.
3. Spray a griddle with cooking spray over medium heat about 350 degrees F. When the griddle is hot, scoop the pancake mix onto the griddle with a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Cook until the bottoms are golden browned and the top starts to bubble then flip.
4. Serve with sugar free maple syrup, sliced banana and blueberries or whatever you desire. A sprinkle of pecans would be yummy!
These were delicious! They made 6 pancakes so enough for two people.
