Once again another post on breakfast. What can I say it is my favorite meal! I started training a week and a half ago for another 5k on May 1st. Race for the Cure! I'm pretty excited to be doing another 5k this year. It has been rough trying to focus on running and "making" myself run, but I'm setting goals and doing better then ever. Plus after a nice training run I always try to plan a real yummy breakfast! Makes me run just a little bit faster to get to that meal sooner. ;)
If it isn't french toast I want, then it is pancakes. Nothing like homemade pancakes. Just sometimes I don't feel like "fussing" and getting all the ingredients out and making a huge mess. I've been looking for a simple pancake/waffle mix but it had to be 100% whole wheat. Kind of a challenge you think, but it was actually really easy. I saw Kodiak Cakes pop up on several blogs like here and here. Can you say yum? I couldn't wait to order some for myself. 1 serving can make a huge pancake or 3-4 smaller ones for only 130 calories, 100% whole grain, and you just add water. I wanted to add so many toppings like fresh berries, greek yogurt, pure maple syrup and roasted cashews. Which I might add I've been addicted to cashews lately and that's all I want over say ALMOND BUTTER! Crazy huh? I don't know what it is about a roasted cashew but they are delicious.
The pancakes came together beautifully. I cooked them in a lightly greased pan with extra virgin coconut oil. As soon as the cakes were bubbling I knew it was time to flip.
