I think I’ve decided that Sunday mornings are absolutely perfect for pancakes.
The only thing about regular pancakes is that they just don’t always stay with me very long. For example, last Sunday’s birthday pancakes were delicious, but I was hungry within about two hours of eating them. So to avoid that situation again, I decided to put together a batch of pumpkin protein pancakes.
I followed the same recipe as usual, but added in 1 tbsp ground flaxseed and about 2 heaping tablespoons of canned pumpkin to the batter. I topped my ‘cakes with another serving of Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter, half a sliced banana, and a tiny drizzle of sugar-free maple syrup.
I seriously can’t believe I’ve waited so long to make these again. They’re so good and SO filling. Definitely a perfect start to my Sunday!
Once these babies digest, I’m planning on getting in a workout (still TBD), followed by a little prep work in the kitchen for our Super Bowl snacks for this evening.
So far, Jay and I are planning on making:
- Sarah’s Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip
- Lauren’s Loaded Potato Bites
- Gina’s Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks
- Glazed BBQ Chicken Wings (Jay)
- Homemade Salsa (Jay)
There’s still a few other things we’re tossing around, but we don’t want to end up with *too* much food, especially since our friends are bringing some things as well. I guess we’ll see what happens!
