I have to go into the office this morning, so I’m gearing up for a quick workout-2 mile run and biceps and back. Had my coffee in a HUGE mug (cute inspirational saying free of charge), some blueberries and 1/3 c cottage cheese to get me through.
Before I hit the treadmill though, I wanted to post a little. I had a request for the Pumpkin Pancake recipe (AKA: Best.Breakfast.Ever.). Here ya go Nan!
Pumpkin Pancake (serves 1)
*If you have a magic bullet blender, this recipe works great in it. If not, no biggie a regular blender (or no blender at all) is fine.
1/3 C Dry Oats
2 tbsp Canned Pumpkin
1 tbsp Cottage Cheese (stats on this are for Fat Free)
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp Vanilla
A pinch EACH baking soda, baking powder
Cinnamon to taste
I think it is sweet enough as it, but you could add sugar/sweetener if you like. That will change the stats too though.
Throw all ingredients in a blender. Pulse a few times, not too much, and pour into a small pan sprayed with cooking spray. Flip. Plate. Spread on you favorite topping – Peanut Butter for me please! Devour. You can thank me later….
Stats – Plain pancake no toppings:
