still waitin’ on that pancake recipe? i really dropped the ball- this was supposed to be up days ago. but here it IS, right now, i won’t make you wait any longer!!!
- 1 whole egg (or 2 egg whites)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen, microwaved / cooked spinach, cooled
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon (or more…be generous!)
- half a banana
- 1 packet stevia (optional)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
throw everything in the blender and turn it ON! the banana makes the batter sweet enough for me, but if you need more, add the packet of stevia. blend to your liking- if you’re making it for your kiddos though, definitely blend until super smooth. we don’t want them to discover our little secret!
turn your non-stick pan on medium heat and cook them up like cakes. when bubbles start to form and pop, flip them. 3-4 min on each side should be about right.
for the entire stack: w/out the greek yo and using 1 whole egg
remember this is pretty much a complete meal for your little one(s)! veggies (spinach), complex carbs (oatmeal), protein/fat (eggs) and plen-tay of fiber!
have you tried this?
honey crisp apples are the bomb, but they are also pretty pricy per lb. i buy red delicious apples a lot, and i make a dip for the slices using chocolate PB2 and 0% greek yogurt mixed together. sweet, protein-filled dip/treat.
i snacked on it while i made us this dinner last nite:
lean, grilled, apple-turkey burgers stuffed with mozzarella cheeeeeese! WHAT! we added ripe, mashed avocado, fat-free feta, juicy tomatoes, and coarse ground mustard, all on sara lee 45 cal whole wheat bread. mmm-mm-mmmmm.
i’m holdin’ out on ya again… recipe will be in tha e-book, but go make my apple-chicken patties until then..they are just as good;)
i made some meatballs out of the rest of the batter and stuffed them with low-fat mozzarella also- you can toss these over veggies, whole wheat pasta, rice, quinoa, salad…WHATEVER! avocado, fat-free feta, and low carb ketchup was what i was feelin’ along with my sweet potatoes and okra.
how was your saturday!? mine was FAN-FLIPPIN’ TASTIC! can you tell?! i subbed for another instructor at the gym and i always love the saturday morning crowd and a great, sweaty, saturday morning workout. 75 minutes of only the best class ever…Total Body Conditioning baby! even on spring break, people showed up and got their sweat on with me! little man was there too, so we hit the Lifetime Cafe for some all natural, ‘pee-za’ on whole wheat crust, his fave.
this spoke to the Techy in me:)
