Good morning! 😎

Last night at dinner, either Brittany or Sarah mentioned that they add protein powder to their pancakes. What a great idea!

Ever since I started training for the New York City Marathon and read over my Marathon Fueling Q & A, I’ve been trying to get more protein in my diet. Protein Pancakes sound like the perfect way to do so!

Protein Pancakes


  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. In a bowl, mix together ingredients.
  2. Preheat a skillet (medium-low heat), spray with non-stick spray, and pour in half of the batter while shaping it into a pancake with a spoon.
  3. Heat until partially cooked and flip pancake.
  4. Once cooked through, top with syrup, nut butter, fresh fruit or anything else your heart desires.

I topped my Protein Pancakes with Biscoff Spread from my goodie bag at TECHmunch. Holy crap is this stuff amazing! It tastes just like Biscoff cookies! I also drank an iced coffee with soy milk with breakfast.

Vote for My Video

Remember when I went to Rialto to film Jody Adams as part of a Food Network promotion? Well, I submitted my video and now it’s part of a contest to win a trip to New York City, and I would love, love, love your support!


Three chefs are being featured on the Food Network using grapes from California to inspire their dishes. The California Grape Commission challenged me and two other food bloggers to videotape our own behind-the-scenes footage to create a vignette that shows the passion of each chef for their craft and quality of ingredients. You can watch all three videos on the Grapes from California Facebook page.

I really hope you consider voting for my video! It only takes a few seconds, and I would be ever so grateful and love you forever! Please feel free to share this around the web too!

Question of the Day

Do you think you get enough protein in your diet? Do you think about it when planning your meals? What are your favorite sources of protein?

P.S. I am in love with this pug photo!
