Hey hey my little broccoli bites!
I hope you guys are having a fantastically lazy Sunday afternoon! I’ve been super busy today! Super busy planting my rump on the couch that is! I do plan on getting up here soon so I can meet a friend at the gym for a little sweat sesh, but for now, I’m perfectly content sitting here with my lap top, sipping on my second cup of coffee…yes, I am having a cup of coffee in the middle of the afternoon, because it’s the weekend and everybody knows there aren’t any rules for the weekend! 😉
While perusing some foodie blogs this morning, I stumbled across Kate’s “7 Links” post from earlier this week. Let me just say that I am absolutely LOVING seeing these posts around blogworld…it’s such a great way to catch up and learn more about some of my favorite bloggers!
If you didn’t catch my post, you can see it here!
I followed her recipe exactly, but at the last minute decided to throw a few carob chips into the mix…
From the moment the batter was stirred up, my mouth was watering…and THEN the entire kitchen started smelling like freshly baked banana bread as they were doing they’re thing in the skillet!
I usually like my pancakes with more of a fluffy consistency that you can only get from using some sort of flour, but every now and then I can appreciate a little variety and these were definitely good enough to make again! Besides the perfectly sweet flavor from the bananas and chewy texture of the oats, these babies pack a nutrient punch with the addition of chia seeds and protein powder…they kept me full for four hours!
Well, I’m off to go snag a quick run before meeting my friend for Bodypump! Honestly I can’t decide if the motivation to run is coming from the itch of not running in the past few days, or because I scored these babies while shopping yesterday:
I really REALLY needed a new pair of running shoes. Plus I figured since I got these during the tax free weekend with TWO coupons…one for $10 off and one for 20% off, they’ll get me by until I can get my booty to Nashville and grab a pair of these!
Do you have a brand preference when it comes to running/cross-training shoes?
What deliciousness did YOU have for breakfast this morning?
