Woke Up Wanting Pancakes...

But since I woke up at 4:30 a.m. in order to get a 40 minute cardio session and 30 minute lift (arms today) in, I sadly couldn't partake in any kind of pancake party. I have been dying to try out this recipe that I found at Tone It Up and I will definitely be making these pancakes for dinner tonight. Hopefully my pancakes will look as delicious as the ones pictured below...I'll snap some quick shots tonight!

  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (organic rice protein or whey)- visit your local nutrition store or wholefoods!
  • 1/2 banana (mashed)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs flaxseed
  • Add a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries after the above ingredients are mixed together.
Pour into a pan that has been sprayed with olive oil cooking spray- heat on medium.  Cook one side until you see the little bubbles... just like cooking any pancake! Flip over (careful!) and cook on the other size until the middle is done (peek inside with a fork). Top with two sliced strawberries and optional powdered stevia. ENJOY your protein pancakes!  :)  If you need more carbohydrates, you may add 1-tbs agave or organic maple syrup on top.

Side note: Would anyone want to start seeing some of my work-outfits? I know I originally started blogging with a fashion-focus...healthy living blogging just took over my life, not that I'm complaining ;) Just figured I'd ask. Have a great day everyone.


  1. those pancakes look amazing! O my god you get up at 4:30 to work out?!?! kudos to you-that's amazing and so impressive!

  2. Yummy! I have been craving pancakes! I would love to see your workout plans, I've been wanting to get back into lifting so I'd love to see what you do when you lift!

  3. Those pancakes look yummy! I've seen them on the tone it up website and have wanted to try them! I would love to see your ideas are always great to come by :)

  4. I was craving pancakes this morning too so I made them for me and the bf :)

    Yours look fantastic! I think a great breakfast is a great way to start the day. Have a great week.

    I know I would love to see what you wear to work!

  5. I never thought of putting protein powder in my pancakes...definitely need to give that a try!


  6. I looooove pancakes and I've eaten them every day this week - no joke! I'm currently experimenting with my own favorite protein pancakes :)

  7. I keep reading about flax seed...what does it'd do?

  8. I made pancakes the other day for dinner, but not healthy ones like these! However, I majorly screwed up by putting way too much baking powder by accident. Woops! Still ate them thought :P

  9. I never wake up craving pancakes, but I do love them for dinner :D Sounds like a fab recipe, and I hope they turn out for ya! And I'd totally love to see some of your outfits! I love fashion, but have trouble coming up with decent things to wear sometimes, so it's always nice to get some inspiration :D

  10. Those pancakes sure look good, but I always feel like pancakes make so much mess to clean up. Plus, flipping pancakes are not my strongest skill :)

    I'd love to see some of your work-outfits :)
