Obsessed with Protein Pancakes/Waffles

I have a few obsessions these days.

1.  The dogs I dog-sat this weekend.

That’s Goat.  Dave was in the other room when this photo was taken.

2.  Mad Men

Ahhhh sorry if you haven’t seen last night’s episode.  But Don and Peggy?!? WTF?  I’m almost a little concerned to say that I’m slightly pleased/happy/giddy over this whole situation!  Anyone else?

3.  Protein Pancakes/Waffles

Basically I’ve had them everyday for the past four days.  I’m happy to say the recipe is now perfected.

Perfect Protein Pancakes for one or two

2 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 small banana, mashed
1/4 cup milk
1 egg white
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or almond extract)

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add the mashed banana, milk and vanilla and stir together until just combined.  In a small bowl whip up the egg white until it’s frothy.  Add it to the rest of the batter.  Bake in a heated waffle iron or cook on a griddle/pan for tasty protein filled breakfast goodies.

I like to slather mine in greek yogurt mixed with raspberry jam.

Definitely worth it.  Not to mention they’ll keep you super full for hours, which is always appreciated.

Off to read!  Have a good night!
