• Oatmeal Pancake Return and Favorite Workouts

    May 15, 2009

    I used to make Oatmeal Pancakes all of the time, including pumpkin, blueberry, strawberry, and sweet potato varieties. An Oatmeal Pancake doesn’t take that much more time to make than a pot of oats, and I remember them holding me over until lunch without a problem. They’re delicious and satisfying– I wonder why I stopped making them? I guess this meal needs to be back in my breakfast rotation again! 

    Oatmeal Pancake

    Recipe from Katheats.com

    Ingredients:

    1/3 cup oats 
    1/3 cup liquid egg whites 
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    Cinnamon to taste
    Toppings to taste
    Optional: 1/2 a mashed banana or 1/4 cup canned pumpkin, squash or mashed sweet potato

    Directions:

    • Mix together oats and egg whites with baking powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon in a bowl. Optional: add half a mashed banana or other ingredients to the batter.
    • Preheat a skillet, spray with non-stick spray, and pour your batter in while shaping it into a large disc “pancake” with a spoon.
    • Heat until partially cooked and flip pancake.
    • Once cooked through, top with syrup, peanut butter, canned pumpkin, fresh fruit or banana slices.

    One pancake is approximately 150 calories.

    In addition to a lovely oatmeal pancake topped with Barney Butter and raisins, breakfast included watermelon, a dark chocolate Adora disk, and iced coffee with agave nectar and milk. 

    Favorite Workouts

    As you may know, I am obsessed with Body Pump! It’s my favorite workout of all time! :-D Even though Healthworks recently started to offer the class at some of their locations, it’s just not easy for me to attend Body Pump on a regular basis. However, back in the day (aka before I started the blog), I used to do my own version of Body Pump at home with set of weights and a DVD of a similar workout. (As far as I know, Body Pump DVDs don’t exist. Although, you can find videos of classes on YouTube.) I sort of forgot about my at-home Body Pump workouts until the other day. We have no room in our apartment to store a set of weight, but somehow I’m going to make it work! I need Body Pump in my life again! I miss it! 

    What are your favorite workouts of all time?

    My list

    1. Body Pump

    2. Running (including treadmill workouts)

    3. Yoga

    4. Smartbells

    5. Gravity

    6. Step Aerobics (I’m so 90′s!) 

    7. Soccer (I wish I played more!) 

    8. Strength training classes (ex: Body Defined)

    9. Tennis

    10. Walking/hiking 

    Cookie Friday

    Just a little reminder: It’s Cookie Friday! :mrgreen:

    My Cookie Friday, however, might become “Mini Carrot Cake Friday.” I saw this delicious looking treat at the Crema Cafe the other day, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Today might be the day to try it! ;-)

    Thanks for posting the recipe! I LOVE pancakes but don’t eat them because they’re not good for me. I’m going to go for a 3 mile run tomorrow morning and make this my treat! :D

    How would you make that if you don’t have egg white, do you just use a whole egg and seperate the yolk and the white or can I change it to have the eggs go in there?

    i’ve made this for the past two days and it’s so hearty and filling! instead of the egg whites i use about 1/2 of a large banana and it comes out great. it’s so fast and easy to make too!

    Has anyone tried the Insanity workouts?? I’m obsessed with them right now… I’m on Day 42 and my body has never been more toned.
