Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

Standard

This morning I did my best to sleep in and I made it till 8:45 till Chewbacca woke me up.

I let Andrew sleep in while I went on an 8 mile.  The weather was perfect for a long run today, it was windy and the sky was cast over.  The arch in my right foot started to cramp up during my last mile but I managed to make it home in 1 hour and 10 mins.

I decided on pancakes this morning for breakfast to start off my 5 day vacation! 🙂  I LOVE this pancake recipe.  The pancakes are so soft, moist and good for you!  They are made without any butter or sugar but they taste just like oatmeal cookies.  I surprised Andrew with chocolate chips in his pancakes.  I’m not a big fan of sweets for breakfast so I stuck with the original recipe for myself.

Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

-1 very ripe banana

-1 tsp baking powder

-1 flax egg (1 tbsp flaxseed meal + 2.5 tbsp water)
