The Ultimate PancakePosted: April 26, 2011
Who doesn’t love the decadence of a pancake breakfast on the weekend and all wonderful things that can be associated with it: no work, syrup, family, indulgence, fresh juice, sleeping in, FREE time. Let’s face it, if you’re eating pancakes, life is good. Alas, as with all the great things in life, too much of it can have less than desirable side effects. In this case, feeling totally stuffed and while crawling back into bed to sleep some more is not a bad thing, doing so due to a food coma might be. Today my friends, I present to you a recipe that is gold in your kitchen arsenal. These cakes are filled with whole grain, protein, and are delicious to boot. I tweaked this recipe from one of my favorite blogs OmGal.com. Give these cakes a try next time you want a most delicious breakfast (or lunch or dinner) that just so happens to be nutritious as well.
