No snail legs in my oatmeal pancake!
I said it yesterday and I’m not afraid to say it again—-these are awesome! Long ago in high school (too long ago), I had a personal trainer who gave me the recipe how to make plain oatmeal pancakes. She said to just combine egg whites and oats overnight and then in the morning, add chopped apple and cook like a pancake. Those were good, but then I believe it was Kath, way back in….2007?!, who said to add mashed banana to the batter….so much better.
Those of you who asked yesterday if the pancake is mushy inside….negative. It’s actually quite nice inside; you should try it. Again today, all I did was take my concoction I set in the fridge last night (1/2 cup oats + 1/2 cup liquid egg whites, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, pinch of salt) and add half a mashed banana. This morning I cooked this puppy on a hot skillet and then topped with the other half of the mashed banana and some peanut butter, of course. The pancake brings in about 19 grams of protein and is very filling, even for ravenous beasts like myself.
Where would we be without peanut butter?
The answer is no where.
Have you all been reading? For those of you that are following along with my summer reading list, shall we have our first book discussion soon? Next week? The book set to be discussed in My Antonia and I’ll put up a separate post for that book and all you good students who have read it can post in your comments/discussion questions and reviews. Sound good? I’ve secretly always wanted to be an English teacher.
Please check out my latest True/Slant article if you haven’t already…its a quick read on goat cheese. This brings me to my next topic for discussion, which is I definitely take reader requests for my True/Slant articles. If you want me to write about a certain subject, email me and I’ll see what I can do. As long as I don’t have 10,000 emails telling me to write about foods that increase your sex drive or something, we’re good. Uhhh yeah.
And keep on donating!!!!!!!! I believe in my heart and soul we are going to hit $5,000 today and I’m pretty much bursting at the seams. KEEP IT UP! You have 48 hours left to buy a ticket!
