Before I give you the recipe for this amazing breakfast, I'd like to share with your our race photos. Yeah! We just received notification that the race photos are online. Whenever we get this kind of note, we get super excited. There's this chance to see ourselves at our athletic best. To gaze upon our toned thigh muscles . . . our eyes fixed in competitive bliss . . . and, maybe if we're lucky, our final kick where we pass someone at the end. And Stephen's speed means he's typically not running around a ton of other people -- so photographers can easily take in all his hardcore glory.
But that's not all! They also got several great shots of him at the finish. Look at him go!
But here's the story of MY life. If I'm lucky, photographers maybe shoot one or two photos of me. For whatever reason, though, I seem to elude them . . . at pretty much every event. So, here's what I got . . .
Yeah. I can't even look cool in that ONE photo. Instead, I look like I'm in a lot of pain (which I wasn't) and I'm hardly moving (and I PRed, almost going an 8 minute-flat pace). Oh, well. Guess I'm also destined to be behind the camera. Or both in front of and behind (because I'm taking way too many photos of myself while I try to learn the functions of my new camera).
Now: Got ten minutes? Then you have enough time to whip up these tasty pancakes for breakfast today! Or tomorrow. Or even on Father's Day! This recipe makes one very large serving, but more like two healthy servings.
FLUFFY FLAX PANCAKES (with pan-fried apples)
What you'll need . . .
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup almond milk (maybe a bit more depending on your desired consistency)
- 1 tablespoon canola or sunflower oil
- 1 apple, sliced
- 1/2 tablespoon Earth Balance (or other butter substitute)
Method . . .
- Whisk together the flours, flax meal, baking power, and baking soda.
- Stir in the almond milk and oil. Be careful to not over mix. But if the batter is way too thick (and you'll know if it is) add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Then make your pancakes the way you'd normally do.
- When you're done, keep the heat on, but turn it down a touch. Then throw in the Earth Balance and apple slices. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste and cook until apples are soft. About five minutes.
- Pile apples over pancakes and pour maple syrup over the whole thing. It's delicious! So, enjoy!
Pssst: Don't forget you have until Friday, June 18th (THAT'S TODAY!) at 9PM to enter our CSN $60 Gift Certificate Giveaway. I know what I'd do with that $$$ -- buy a new food processor!!!
