clean eating pancakes

Seeing that I’ve lost 5 pounds in less than a month is kind of a big deal for me. I’m so excited. It’s giving me some momentum to stay on top of things this week.

My kids don’t always like what I eat, so asking them what they like to eat is a big deal. I make weekly menus and letting them participate helps a lot. When I make the food they ask for I’ve found that if I can say they asked for what I’ve made they’re more likely to eat it. I think it’s because I can say they chose it and they like being in charge of things.

Some things that my kids love for breakfast are

Rice Chex
Pancakes
Waffles
Bananas and other fruit (but usually bananas)

Pancakes and waffles can be startchy because they’re made with flour, but there are healthy pancake recipes. One I’ve used that my kids love are banana pancakes. Here’s the recipe:

1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Mash together. Cook like pancakes. (You can multiply this so you can make however many you need.

My kids are cereal fiends so I don’t make these often (and if my husband cooks he uses regular pancake stuff).

Have a great morning everyone!

1. Grease a nonstick pan, and set to medium-high heat.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix until fully incorporated.

Cinnamon Bun Mug Pancakes


Last year I was introduced to aubernutterpb Mug Pancakes and my world changed forever :)

It’s so simple and versatile that I altered it to my preferences and then started creating!! I have made so many different types of this breakfast it’s insane!!! Anytime I feel like cake I adapt the recipe to that specifc cake and VOILA !! I’m so satisfied! 


Not only are they delicious but they are full of protein, low calorie and high in calcium!


Some beautiful grey goodness :P


This is my version of the mug pancake, check out aubernutterpb recipe here



Cinnamon Bun Mug Pancakes

  • ½ Banana
  • 1Tb + ¼ cup of Greek yoghurt
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp vanilla essence 
  • 1 tsp sweetener of choice (I used natvia)
  • 1/3 cup oat flour (or just blend normal oats till they become small flakes)
  • pinch of baking powder
  • 2 tsp + ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  1. Put half a banana in the mug and nuke it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds until its all gooey
  2. Add yoghurt, egg white, vanilla and half the sweetener in the mug and blend with a fork until well combined
  3. Add cinnamon, oats and baking powder and combine well +++ don’t forget to blend all the crap at the bottom or else it will fall apart
  4. Chuck in the microwave for 1 -1:30 minutes +++ keep an eye on it because it might spill over, if it looks like it will just pause microwave for 10 seconds and repeat
  5. While the mug is in the microwave incorporate ¼ cup of yoghurt, ¼ tsp of cinnamon, the remaining sweetener, and ¼ tsp of vanilla and combine
  6. Put mug on plate upside down and tap the top so it all comes out
  7. Cut into three slices, and top with yoghurt icing
