Peanut Butter Pancakes

Okay people, I have been kind of inconsistent with my postings but work has been kicking my butt, and weekends have been busy with other stuff.

In the meantime, as promised, here is the recipe for my favorite breakfast, peanut butter protein pancakes. Besides being totally delicious, it is the only way I can get myself to eat oatmeal. Yeah, it sounds rather weird but believe me, it rocks. I would also like to add that this recipe is from one of the issues of Oxygen magazine, which I swear by. I only added the sugar free syrup to it.

(It makes two pancakes, which is one serving)

4 egg whites
1/3 cup oatmeal (plain)
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter, the kind you need to stir. If it says no need to stir, you don't want it.
1 packet Splenda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup of sugar-free pancake syrup (optional)

Mix it all in a bowl, except for the syrup. I mix it with an egg beater. If you have a problem with the consistency of oatmeal, do it in the blender. It's all the same. Cook it in a heated pan with non-stick spray, just like you would any other pancake. Add syrup and enjoy. It's addictive!

Nutritional Content: 286 calories, 9gr fat (but it's the good, cholesterol reducing fat), 0 gr cholesterol, 28 carbs, 2 gr sugars, 5 gr fiber, 24 gr. protein.

I live for this thing. I work out in the morning just to have this breakfast. Yum.

And now, I am going home.

C ya later!
