Yum Yum Pancake Fun

8 Apr

I have been away for a while and in a bit of a work rut, in which all I was doing was focussing on the state test my students were taking. Consequently, I have been missing my runs and doing poorly with my diet.

New Goal: NO MORE EXCUSES! TEAM COMMITMENT!

While getting back on track, I came across a delicious recipe: Pancake Muffins! They are great!

Pancake Muffins

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup pancake mix (any will do- low fat will lower the calories)
  • 2/3 cups of fat free milk, 2% milk, soy milk (any will work- I used water)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar free syrup (I used sugar free maple syrup)
  • fruit, sausage, bacon, etc. (anything you want in the pancake muffin)

Directions: 

  1. Mix the pancake mix, milk, and syrup in a bowl
  2. pour batter into 12 cup muffin pan
  3. top with your choice of fruit, meat, etc.
  4. bake at 350 for approximately 10-15 minutes (different times for different ovens and pans)
  5. Enjoy! I dipped them in a side of low fat syrup.

Darn you chocolate monster!

14 Mar

I love chocolate and I am pretty sure I inherited it from my mother…thanks mom! While I would love to indulge in a beautifully tasting piece of chocolate cake or candy, I think I would love the feeling of overcoming this darn craving more. So, how do I overcome the temptation of the chocolate monster? I do it with a modified version of my mom’s famous and easy party favorite…a strawberry shortcake.

Ingredients: 

Diet Coke, Chocolate cake mix, Fresh Strawberries, and Fat Free Cool Whip
