yesterday’s awesome breakfast contains 1 serving of fruit,
and 1 serving of veggies!
ffl’s red velvet pancakes
1/3 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of sea salt
1 egg white (or 2 if you want them fluffier/thicker/cake-like)
1/2 cup pureed, cooked beets
half a banana (natural sweetness!)
5-7 drops chocolate stevia
1/2 – 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
throw your oats into your blender (or you can keep them as is) and ground them into a powder. toss in the other dry ingredients: baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt. dump all that into a bowl and set it aside. then, add your roasted, previously cooked beets into the blender along with the banana, egg white(s), vanilla, and chocolate stevia. scoop all that out and add it to your dry mix. incorporate! finally, add the almond milk to your desired consistency.
stats for the entire stack:
what’s that topping you ask? you DID ask. i heard you. it’s 2 tbsp of no fat cream cheese + 1 packet of granulated stevia. any nuts will do, but that walnut, red velvet, cream cheese combo is a serious triple threat!
as always, adjust those nutritional stats accordingly when dealing with toppings. a drizzle of Walden Farms pancake syrup made these cakes and my breakfast complete. eat’em up, then go lift heavy things at the gym today.
GOOD MORNING TO YOU!
