The kids have a snow day here in Maryland, so I asked the 7-Year-Old if he wanted a special snow-day breakfast.
Me: You mean a pancake shaped like a snowflake?
Him: Yes! You could drizzle the batter and make a snowflake.
Me: Ok, I'll try! That's a fun challenge.
Him: While you do that I'll make a craft for you.
My first attempt, not so pretty.
Second attempt, better, but more star-like than snowflake-like.
After that, I decided to make regular old pancakes. I just don't think the snowflake was going to happen.
He said that it was ok and it's looked like a cool octopus man.
As long as he's eating a healthy breakfast, I don't really care.
We split these Banana Protein Pancakes for breakfast, and I enjoyed mine topped with a little Peanut Butter paste I make by mixing peanut butter flour and water. I was too rushed to take a photo, but if I make them again, I'll share it on IG.
I'm starting to get more detailed with my macros again. I've been training pretty hard at the gym lately so I'm trying to keep my protein-intake up there. The Banana Protein Pancakes were my post-workout meal before work and it hit the spot.
