Pancake Crazy + Leg Workout

14 Nov

I am obsessed with pancakes. I literally make them almost every Saturday AND Sunday. We had breakfast for dinner tonight!  I love trying different types of recipes for pancakes and have found a recipe base of 4-5 different types that I regularly make. Your traditional flour and egg pancakes aren’t generally that good for you so I try to find protein pancakes or other pancakes that have more staying power and healthy ingredients so I’m not hungry again 5 minutes after eating them. However Austin doesn’t eat the healthy pancakes so I always use a traditional pancake recipe and make him separate pancakes every time (annoying, but I love pancakes so I do it).

Traditional Fluffy Pancake Recipe: Makes 4-6 medium pancakes

1/2 Cup Flour

1/2 Cup Milk

1 tbsp butter/shortening

1 egg

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tbsp sugar

Mix dry, then mix wet. Make pancakes on a 350 degree griddle. Yum!

I also have a couple of ‘healthy’ pancake recipes from different blogs that I’ve found. I rotate the pancake recipes depending on how I feel.

My absolute favorite, via Peanut Butter Fingers: Almond Butter Pancakes

Another close runner up, from Chocolate Covered Katie: Apple Pie Pancakes

These are yummy and really rich: Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie pancakes

Bahhh now I want more pancakes 😦 Is it Saturday yet????
Tomorrow I am going to be pretty sore considering I crushed a pretty serious leg workout. I can already feel them starting to turn to jello. I again modified this workout from one I found online on bodybuilding.com:
