What I Ate Wednesday – Pancakes Included
What I Ate Wednesday – courtesy of Instagram. I have to say thank you to Instagram for making my awful iPhone pictures look a little better. I’m becoming a little obsessed with it. Follow me: @FamilyFitnessFood.
Date night this past weekend: salmon with basil mashed potatoes and a roasted tomato (the top item is the tomato).
Avocados were on sale this past week – calling for fresh guacamole.
This has been sitting in my cabinet and I took it on my 8 miler this past weekend. LOVED it. Like eating peanut butter mid-run. Can’t go wrong with that.
I was making my awesome pancakes last weekend and the only buttermilk option was this huge carton. So, now I need ideas to use it up. This was the makings of a buttermilk marinade with fresh rosemary from my garden. With a little breading and some time in the oven, that was dinner.
Oh, and while we are on the subject of pancakes. Here’s my recipe that I’m always raving about.
Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
adapted from Cooking Light
3/4 c whole wheat flour
3/4 c white flour
3 Tbl. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 scoop chocolate Whey Protein
1 Tbl. wheat germ
1 1/2 c low-fat buttermilk
1 Tbl. canola oil
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/4 cup-ish semi-sweet chocolate chips or your favorite pancake mix in (blueberries work awesome too)
Mix dry and wet separately. Then, combine. Add chocolate chips last. My nutritional breakdown shows the batter makes about 12 pancakes (I use a 1/3 cup scoop) and they have approximately 100 calories each with 55% carbs, 27% fat and 18% protein. Perfect!
I’ve made them a few times without buttermilk, but just souring some milk with vinegar, but it’s better with the buttermilk.
Are you a pancake fan?
