Happy National Pancake Day everyone!
So, I totally didn’t even know this was a real day, but someone informed me this morning that it was today, so of course I had to celebrate! I had already eaten breakfast by the time I found out about it, so I decided to make pancakes for dinner 🙂
I have been making this protein pancake for breakfast ALL the time lately. It is soooo good and all of the ingredients are really good for you too.
1 egg white
2 tablespoons almond milk (or skim)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1/2 mashed banana
Stir in blueberries.
Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray and pour in mixture. Cook on medium heat and flip when bubbles start to form.
Top with strawberries, bluebberries, and a little stevia powder or sugar-free syrup if desired! Enjoy! 🙂
After dinner, I decided to try a new recipe I found for chia seed pudding. Chia seeds are an awesome source of healthy fats (omega 3s). I have been putting them in other things like protein drinks and yogurt and LOVE them, so I decided to give this a try.
To make, combine:
3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
3 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
I let mine sit in the fridge for a couple hours to let it thicken up a bit, and it was so good! Definitely worth trying! 🙂
