Last night I made these pancakes for dinner. I changed the recipe up a bit to use ingredients I had at home. Instead of the sweet potato I used pumpkin, millet flour instead of wheat bran, quinoa flour instead of coconut flour and hemp protein powder instead of the vanilla. Also I added some cinnamon, but no optional sweetener. I drizzled on some almond butter and devoured ALL of them. They puffed up so much when I cooked them, but deflated before even making it to the plate :(.
I really liked how light they were. My batch made 12 small pancakes, and according to Deb all of them totaled only 400 calories. I’m sure my batch is a bit different since I switched up some ingredients but still only 400 calories (+ my almond butter) for a super filling meal. I don’t really count calories, but it was good to know that even though I felt like I ate way more calories, because of the fluffed up egg whites it turned out to be a pretty low calorie count for so much food. I didn’t get hungry later into the evening and normally I want an evening snack. I was very impressed with the filling power of these pancakes!
It snowed a ton last night and it’s still all over the ground this morning so I didn’t run like I’d hoped too. Instead I did yesterday’s move of the day, and today’s move as well. Today’s move of the day focuses on the upper body, and more specifically your shoulders — the lateral raise.
I hope we get even more snow, but sadly it’s unlikely :(.
What I’m munching on now: oatmeal with banana, flax, cashew/almond butter and cinnamon.
