I think these are my new favorite pancakes. They are light, fluffy, slightly sweet, crunchy. Thanks Jenn for the idea of these! And if I ever find myself in Seattle – we are definitely getting together!
I kinda just made these up with what I had on hand. I had buttermilk, so I decided to make banana, granola buttermilk pancakes. Each pancake is 3 points, unless you have three like me and then they are 10 points – totally filling and totally worth the points!
Banana Granola Buttermilk Pancakes
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1-2 bananas, sliced
- 1/2 cup store bought granola
Mix everything together except for the banana and granola. If possible let the batter sit for 15 – 30 minutes – the baking powder has time to do its magic and you’ll have fluffy pancakes every time.
I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup and got 8 pancakes with this recipe. See how bubbly the batter is?
Once the batter had set up on one side, I pressed in the bananas and granola – the granola stayed nice and crunchy.
At work I added 1/4 cup of sugar free syrup, so breakfast comes in at 11 points.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday. When I left for my bike ride it was 78 degrees and sunny. I decided to do my 8 mile trail ride in reverse – holy shizz was that hard! A lot more hills and the head wind was amazing – at times it was so windy I could barely hear by iPod! It took me 55 minutes to do 8 miles.
I was hangry when I got back – I ended up having a chicken taco salad – 4 ounces of chicken, 1/4 cup corn, 1/4 cup black beans, light ranch and lots of hot sauce – lunch comes in at 10 points.
I ended up working almost an hour of overtime yesterday, and without a meal plan and short on time, I stopped at a local beef stand to pick up dinner. You know Tony and I hate onions, but we can do onion rings! I had a grilled chicken pita, added some BBW spicy hot sauce, and fries and a couple rings – dinner comes in at 14 points.
Who’s watching MasterChef? I really hope Jennifer wins! It’s been BizTV lately – right now on my DVR I have Chopped, MasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen and America’s Test Kitchen. I know Tony can’t wait for football season to begin!
