I think these are my new favorite pancakes.  They are light, fluffy, slightly sweet, crunchy.  Thanks Jenn for the idea of these!  And if I ever find myself in Seattle – we are definitely getting together! šŸ˜€

I kinda just made these up with what I had on hand.  I had buttermilk, so I decided to make banana, granola buttermilk pancakes.  Each pancake is 3 points, unless you have three like me and then they are 10 points – totally filling and totally worth the points!

Banana Granola Buttermilk Pancakes

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 cup store bought granola

Mix everything together except for the banana and granola.  If possible let the batter sit for 15 – 30 minutes – the baking powder has time to do its magic and you’ll have fluffy pancakes every time.

I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup and got 8 pancakes with this recipe.  See how bubbly the batter is?

Once the batter had set up on one side, I pressed in the bananas and granola – the granola stayed nice and crunchy. šŸ˜€

At work I added 1/4 cup of sugar free syrup, so breakfast comes in at 11 points.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday.  When I left for my bike ride it was 78 degrees and sunny.  I decided to do my 8 mile trail ride in reverse – holy shizz was that hard!  A lot more hills and the head wind was amazing – at times it was so windy I could barely hear by iPod!  It took me 55 minutes to do 8 miles.

I was hangry when I got back – I ended up having a chicken taco salad – 4 ounces of chicken, 1/4 cup corn, 1/4 cup black beans, light ranch and lots of hot sauce – lunch comes in at 10 points.

I ended up working almost an hour of overtime yesterday, and without a meal plan and short on time, I stopped at a local beef stand to pick up dinner.  You know Tony and I hate onions, but we can do onion rings! šŸ˜€  I had a grilled chicken pita, added some BBW spicy hot sauce, and fries and a couple rings – dinner comes in at 14 points.

Who’s watching MasterChef?  I really hope Jennifer wins!  It’s been BizTV lately – right now on my DVR I have Chopped, MasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen and America’s Test Kitchen.  I know Tony can’t wait for football season to begin! šŸ˜€

Stats for Tuesday

I am off to do some exercise on Demand – maybe some yoga?

Make it a great day!
