Whole Wheat Honey Pancakes

I'm so glad that we're officially more than half way through the week! Hooray! Do you guys have any good weekend plans? Our 1 year wedding anniversary is Monday so we will probably do some celebrating this weekend! Tonight I taught class for the first time in a week and a half. My goodness, during my vacation I ran and swam a ton, but apparently that didn't keep me in teaching shape! By the end of class I was pretty red and totally exhausted! Phew! Hopefully teaching Body Step tomorrow is a little easier after today's Turbo Kick! After class I came home and made some banana chocolate chip bars that I posted about here for Josh. I put these in the fridge and they are pretty tasty!

I was planning on making shrimp pasta tonight, but Josh had a late softball game so we opted for pancakes instead. I was really excited to try this recipe for Honey Whole Wheat Pancakes I found on this blog. Boy were they delicious! I made banana pancakes and I made a few banana chocolate chip. I topped all of the pancakes with some additional banana slices. I ate one large and one smaller pancake and Josh ate three and some egg whites. These pancakes are soooo filling! The recipe is as follows:

Honey Whole Wheat Pancakes from Food for Laughter

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup honey
2 egg whites
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1 T olive oil
1 tsp vanilla
Optional, as desired: 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or 1/2 cup peanut butter, or 1/2 cup pecans, or 1 cup blueberries


~ Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
~ In a second, larger bowl, whisk together the egg whites, buttermilk, and honey until well blended.
~ Pour the flour mixture in to the egg mixture, and stir until just combined.
~ Stir in the olive oil and vanilla, again just until combined. Fold in any of the optional additions, if desired...
~ Heat a large, non-stick skillet, coated with cooking spray, over medium heat. Pour pancake batter onto skillet in individual "pancake" portions about 1/3 cup each. Cook until lightly browned on each side, turning once. Between each batch of pancakes, re-coat the skillet with cooking spray.

Enjoy your Thursday!
