When I read that Katie over at CCV was hosting a pancake challenge, I knew I wanted to submit a recipe. I began by getting all my dry ingredients out last night to speed the process along this morning. I decided to make Green Tea Latte Pancakes:
- 1/3 cup Quaker oats
- 2 tbsp bisquick
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1 tbsp plain NF yogurt
- 1 tsp match green tea powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- a squirt of agave (or honey)
- 3 tbsp unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze
I put everything into a Magic Bullet cup and whirled away for a minute or so. As you can see, I got 4 good sized pancakes from the batter. They were so good that I lost track of time and had to eat the last one one the go. Good thing I put the maple syrup on the side!! Here’s the stats on the recipe according to Spark People:
Not too shabby, eh?
And here’s the “recipe” for these bad boys although you can sub in any type of cereal and spices that your little heart desires!
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 bag miniature marshmallows
- 3 cups puffed wheat
- 3 cups puffed millet
- 1 cup Kashi Vive
- coconut shavings and carob chips to garnish
- melt butter in a large pot then stir cinnamon in
- add marshmallows and stir, stir, stir until smooth
- add all of the cereal and mix very well until all is combined
- press into a 9 x 9 pan and sprinkle with coconut & carob chips
- allow to come to room temp before cutting into 16 squares
Well, I’m all reciped out for now, folks!
I had a few things to do at home over lunch today but wanted to get a bit of a workout in so I opted to do 30 minutes on the elliptical. After that I raced home (I live very close) and hung a load of laundry out on the line and pulled my frozen brussel sprouts out of the freezer to thaw. It’s amazing what one can accomplish in just under and hour! If I didn’t have to take the kids to the sitter, I would be walking or riding my bike to work. One day! Here’s my gym stats!
- Time: 30 minutes
- Avg Hr: 161
- Max Hr: 175
- Calories Burned: 308
- Distance: 3.4 miles
- red leaf lettuce
- grilled red onion and bell peppers
- St. Yves chick’n burger
- honey Dijon dressing
I sent away for the samples so long ago that I forgot all about them. Samples are good for me because I could seriously OD on this stuff!
We had grilled chicken breast for dinner tonight along with some canned mixed veggies (I’m trying to clean out the pantry) and I also sautéed up some brussel sprouts in a wee bit of avocado oil. Once toasty, they got mixed up with some Kraft Fig Balsamic dressing. Oh, yeah!
I sipped on this while reading the new Prevention mag that came in the mail today. As for the rest of the night….it’s going to be an early one. I’ve been getting to bed WAY too late the past few nights and it’s starting to catch up to me. How are you all spending your evening?
Bye for now!!
