Lazy Weekend

I love lazy Sunday mornings.

There is nothing better than waking up late and staying in your pajamas until noon.

After drinking a pot of coffee, my tummy started grumbling.

“Feeeed Meeee!”

I checked the cupboards and found the ingredients for my newest concoction.

Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Makes 14-15 pancakes

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups pancake mix
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 2 packets instant oatmeal

  1. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the pancake mix, protein powder and oatmeal together in a large bowl.

Here’s what I started with… A big bowl of white flour.

I thought to myself, “I’ve got to be able to do better than this!”

Ahhhhhhh.

Quick ‘n easy. Just delicious! ¬†And with a enough rib-sticking-power to keep me going all morning and into the afternoon!

Now that’s what I call a pancake!

No butter or syrup needed.

Ate three each and froze the rest.

Krusteaz ain’t got nothin’ on me. :)
