On A Roll

What could possibly make Monday morning better?

No work? Yeah, but that’s not happening.

Start of a vacation? Sure, but that’s not happening either.

Pancakes? Oh yeah.

But not just any pancakes – Cinnamon Roll Pancakes for another challenge entry  :)

I made the oatmeal pancake recipe again this morning but forgot the baking powder! So, they’re not as fluffy as normal, but still tasty  :)  I guess forgetting an ingredient is what makes it a Monday morning breakfast, right?

pancakes

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch salt

Then I topped the pancakes with 1 Tbsp cinnamon raisin pb and “icing” made out of fat free plain yogurt + 1 tsp maple syrup.

Oh yeah, and some fruit.

Breakfast was great – let’s hope it spills over into the workday!

Have you made your pancake entry yet? What are you waiting for?!?  :)

    Did I say that your last pancake creation was the prettiest thing I’d ever seen? Because if I did, I’m going to need to take it back. Those cinnamon roll pancakes are without a doubt the most amazing pancakes EVER!

    And you are so much fun!

    P.S. I’m sending you an email :)
