three ingredients

I had loads of ripe bananas and was trying to find a recipe for a healthy dessert for the kids. I came across these and they really turned out great!!

We've been experimenting with eating "strategies" (not sure what else to call it) for Chris. He's dedicated with a capital "D" to working out like crazy. He just hasn't been seeing the results he feels like he should be seeing. Anyway, I came across a recipe for breakfast since eggs and oatmeal can get rather old day after day. He said they tasted pretty good and I think will now be entered into the breakfast rotation. :)

Protein Pancakes (serves 1)

1 egg
1 tbls. peanut butter
1 mashed banana

Mix together and grill just like regular pancakes. I drizzle a tiny amount of honey on top to give them a little sweetness. :)

I was pretty surprised at the number/size of pancakes the recipe yielded. :)

p.s. In an effort to save on our electric bill, we signed up for a program with Edison in which they can shut off our air for a period of time occasionally (on really hot days). Usually it hasn't been too big of a deal. However this summer there have been a few days when it's been pretty rough. Yesterday they shut it off for 3 1/2 hours and it reached 86 degrees in the house. So we had a picnic dinner together in our bedroom, since we have a wall unit in there. It was actually kind of fun. :)
