If fitness and fat-minimizing are your goals, then breakfast is your most important meal of the day.
You want to fire up the metabolic furnace as soon as you can, and give your body the energy it needs for ‘all systems go.’
Today for breakfast I concocted some pancake sandwiches to satisfy the big kid inside and fuel my body with the right stuff to start my day.
Cinnamon Pancake Sandwiches
1 egg + 1 egg white
1/2 cup oat bran + 2 T sprouted spelt flour (or substitute almond meal to keep this recipe gluten-free)
1/2-3/4 cup almond milk
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Coconut oil cooking spray
1. Mix together until you have a foamy pancake batter.
2. Using a 1/4 cup ladle, measure the batter onto a hot, oiled griddle and cook on both sides til done.
1 cup Greek Yogurt – optional, to keep it dairy-free just leave it out
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 banana sliced into small pieces
Maple syrup or honey for garnish
Dollop some of the yogurt-banana-walnut mixture on a pancake. Top with another pancake.
Drizzle with syrup or honey. Enjoy!!
