I had such a great yoga practice yesterday. One of those practices that leaves your muscles shaking, your energy flowing, and your heart soaring. I even took Savasana! 90 minutes of pure bliss. Then you know what I saw…THIS…That’s right. A week long yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico in January of 2015 hosted by David Procyshyn and Fiji McAlpine. Basically if I was able to actually attend this I die happy right then and there. Only in my yoga dreams…
On to pancakes!
With all these recipes I have been making, it only seems fair that I get the old ones posted first before I move on to the newer ones. I have a ton of breakfast recipes starting with these pancakes! Yes, pancakes and a granola recipe this week. Two of my favorite things. Since I’m pretty sure I won’t be crunching away on granola anytime soon after my wisdom teeth come out tomorrow, I plan on many pancakes and hot cereals for breakfast. I’m telling you, pancakes solve every one of life’s problems. Having you teeth ripped out from deep within your gums? Eat pancakes! Having a terrible rainy gloomy morning? Have pancakes! Want to just make yourself really happy? Have pancakes! Simple as that!
Even though this is an older recipe, I think it is very fitting considering I am now addicted to coffee. I only allow myself 1 cup a day (decaf!), and usually only every other day. But since I can’t keep wasting money on the glorious Iced Black Unsweetened Decaf at DD everyday, I have resorted to crappy hot black unsweetened from the Keurig. The one my mom and brother likes (Folgers Lively Colombian) also comes in decaf, so she bought a box of that for me and herself sometimes. Well the stuff tastes not so pleasant, but I drink it anyway because bad coffee is better than no coffee ;) I want to get a reusable K-Cup and fill it with some quality ground coffee! But I can also get my fix with these pancakes. Hello vanilla latte!
Vanilla Latte Millet Protein Pancakes
+ Flour Mix: 2 TB of Millet Flour + 2 TB Gluten-Free All Purpose + 1 TB Vanilla Protein Powder
+ 1 Tsp Ground Decaf Coffee (Plus 1/4 Tsp for Topping)
+ 1/2 Tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer
+ 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
+ 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
+ 1/4 Cup Squash Puree (any neutral tasting puree will work)
+ Scant 1/3 Cup Water
+ Optional Topping: Vanilla Protein Frosting (2 TB Vanilla Protein Powder mixed with 2-3 TB Water)
+ Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl except coffee granules. Mic the 1 Tsp of coffee into the water. Then add in all the wet and mix until your get a smooth batter.
+ While the batter sits, heat an oiled pan over medium heat on the stove.
+ Pour 1/3 of the batter on the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flip and cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
+ Top with the coffee granules and optional protein frosting or other desired topping.
There you go. A little protein, a little coffee. a little love! A great way to start the day in my opinion! Cook these up, brew a cup of joe, grab a book, and savor the quiet calm before the day begins! However I will be crunchy my breakfast today. One last day of cereal and granola until I can chew again! Got to make it count! Bring on all the jaw breaking food, like freezing my protein bars and crunching on nuts!
So tell me:
+ Do you prefer Iced or Hot coffee?
+ What’s your favorite K-Cup? Any good decaf ones I should try?
