Gym Day and Up and At 'Em Pancakes
I didn't have time to prepare a healthy breakfast this morning.That's a new habit I've yet to incorporate. But when I do, I'll be making these Up and At 'Em Pancakes, recipe courtesy of my friend Sue, who's a devoted morning exerciser. She says they're very good and they stick to your ribs. She's usually right about everything (seriously!) so I'll take her word for it!
Up and At ‘Em Pancakes
from Sue Valenti:
2 egg whites
¾ - 1 cup skim milk
1 tbsp oil
1 cup flour
¼ cup toasted wheat germ (I also use the untoasted kind)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt (I omit the salt)
½ cup cottage cheese (not no fat, only low fat)
Whip egg whites with a fork until frothy; add ¾ cup milk and oil; stir liquids together. Mix dry ingredients together and add to liquid.Stir until well blended. Add cottage cheese and mix well. If the batter is too thick, thin with the skim milk (or, if you want thinner pancakes. Bake on hot griddle. I divide this batter into 4 pancakes.
