For those that may be new to the little slice of the internet I like to call Weight Off My Shoulders, here is a big fact to know about me... I.
Wow! Feels good to get that off my chest.
Thankfully I married a lovely girl who can cook, BUT there are times when she is NOT home and I must fend for myself.
It can get ugly. I actually cut myself cutting cucumbers the other day. Yup. Blood everywhere.
So clearly I need options that are pretty safe.
Apparently flapJacked heard my plea and invented Protein Pancakes!
If you can't read what it says on the package, let me clue you in: "Just Add Water"
Oh come again you may ask.
Yes, all you have to do is add mix and water.
Okay, even I can handle that amount of work.
Soooo let's see how it went.
1) Whisk 1 cup of mix with 1 cup of water until well blended.
1a) Let sit 3-5 minutes.
2) Heat griddle.
(Note: I am freakin' OWNING this pancake adventure thus far!)
3) Pour batter into 6-8 four inch pancakes.
Confession: I let the wife pour the pancake batter on the griddle. Look she made them the perfect size!!! #WorthIt
Since we were working on the brinner theme (breakfast for dinner), I opted to add some turkey bacon on the griddle after the pancakes were done.
And verdict was????
We made these after I came in from an evening run so they were a perfect way to refuel. Yes I added a glass of low fat chocolate milk. But drank it too quickly for the pic. ;)
I went simple and made the buttermilk flavor, but flapJacked also offers Banana Hazelnut and Cinnamon Apple.
Besides being tasty, the whole process took about 15 minutes. So something I can make in a pinch for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or brinner. ;)
For those counting Weight Watchers points, 2 pancakes (or 1/2 a cup of mix) is 5 PPV or 4 pancakes (1 cup of mix) is 10 PPV. Totally workable into your plan, especially as a way to refuel during a busy weekend.
I am excited to try out the other flavors in the next few weeks. PLUS, the website offers a ton of recipe ideas using all three flavors. Ummm there is something about chocolate chip pancakes on there and I am salivating on my laptop!
