Today’s breakfast was very similar to the chocolate protein pancakes I’ve made before, but I changed the recipe up a bit, and thankfully it worked!
Today my recipe included:
- 1 scoop All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder
- 1/4 c. Sorrento fat-free ricotta cheese
- 1 large egg white
I blended everything together with an immersion blender until the batter was smooth and thick.
I sprayed my hot griddle with cooking spray and held my breath as the pancakes cooked, hoping that the batter would turn into legitimate pancakes, and not prove too goopy or soft.
Thankfully after about four minutes, I had chocolate protein pancakes that tasted light and sweet.
I topped the ‘cakes with a sliced frozen banana and syrup before demolishing them in a most ladylike way. 😉
I enjoyed the chocolate ricotta protein pancakes with a tumbler full of my gym’s free Barnie’s cinnamon butter cookie coffee.
(Thanks to my sister for my new tumbler! I love it!!! 😀 )
This breakfast was a hit after a sch-weaty workout at the gym this morning.
My workout was another cardio hodgepodge:
- 15 min. arc trainer
- 15 min. adaptive motion trainer
- 20 min. elliptical
I’m getting a little bored of my cardio workouts, even when I change them up and add in circuits or outdoor runs.
I start training for the Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon in June and I think that will help me feel like I have something to work toward. Plus, I’m looking forward to running with two of my girlfriends as we train together which should make things more fun!
