Good morning everyone!! Despite having been out of school for
over a decade a short while, I will always think of Monday to Friday as the ‘school week.’ And maybe a little denial about being a grownup 😉
Well, great news… with this recipe, you can enjoy hearty, filling, healthy pancakes in minutes. Totally do-able for a weekday breakfast!
Enjoy this quick and filling pancake in minutes… pancakes no longer need to be relegated to a weekend-only meal! And you can top with anything you like. I event heard about a girl that topped hers with chocolate chips… perhaps that was just an urban-pancake-myth, or maybe that person was me 😉
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1/3 cup oats (I like texture of the thinner cut variety or ‘quick cook’)
- 3 Tbs egg whites (or 2 egg whites)
- dash of pumpkin pie spice
- toppings: strawberries, blueberries, almond butter
Heat a skillet to medium heat, it’s important that the heat isn’t too high… you want the pancake to cook through without burning the outside. Smash the banana with a fork and mix in the egg white, oats and spices. Add to the skillet and cook until set, about 5 minutes. My first few pancakes were more like pancake scrambles because I flipped to early. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Top with berries and almond butter and enjoy!!
In other news, this week started the 21-day meditation challenge with Deepak and Oprah!! Jonathan and I have participated every day so far! I had big plans to finish unpacking our spare room and create a beautiful meditation space before the challenge stared…. alas, I got busy and the room is still in disarray! But, this proves that you don’t need a special zen garden to start a new practice and reap the benefits of meditation. I often find that making just a humble beginning is all it takes!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
