Graham Cracker Pancakes

Yah- you read that right! Hope you all are having a great week so far. Tomorrow is FRIDAY!! Tonight is Brinner night at Itzy’s Kitchen. I am a huge pancake fan, but wanted to try something a little bit different. I found this recipe at Mr. Breakfast for Graham Cracker Pancakes and decided to cook up a batch to eat later tonight.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup finely crushed graham cracker
  • 1 egg (I used egg beaters)
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter – melted (I used smart balance)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions:
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet in another. Combine and cook on griddle (if you need more specific directions, see link above). Deliciousness! Topped with frozen blackberries:


How are your workouts going this week? Mine are looking as follows:
  • Monday: Ran 2 miles, Taught and tapped Body Pump (I submitted my video for assessment, fingers crossed!! I am also working on trying to get a clip of my video up on the blog)
  • Tuesday: Taught Body Attack
  • Wednesday: Off
  • Thursday: Taught 45 minute Body Step and 45 minute Body Pump
  • Friday: Teach Body Attack
  • Saturday: Teach Body Step and Body Pump
  • Sunday: Off or walk

What are you guys up to this weekend? Josh and I have a nice date night planned for tomorrow (yayy) and we have a Christmas party Saturday night. Can you believe Christmas is NEXT week???

Julie said...

Breakfast at dinnertime is one of my favorite ways to eat breakfast!

Mom on the Run said...

My girls love when I do breakfast for dinner. The husband however does not think that is the greatest plan.

This weekend I am hosting a cookie exchange. I am also hoping to get out Christmas cards.

Who knew that graham cracker crust could double as flour? That's just awesome ;)
My workouts are a little scattered, since coming back from the cruise and taking the ACE ecam, but somehow I'm fitting them in there!
Your workouts, of course, look awesome!
Have fun on your date night, chica.

K from ksgoodeats said...

Those sound so good! Could you taste the graham cracker in them? Hope your assessment goes well - I'm sure it will! Have fun on your date night tonight!

By the way, I saw Julie's comment and we were talking yesterday about how her and I will be on the Housewives in like 6 years. Of course you have to be on the season with us! We're thinking Real Housewives of Chicago (summer only and then we move some place warmer). Sound good?! ;)

Anne Marie said...

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Ooo these look wonderful! You could finish em' off by making s'more ones!! :-) I'm not too big of a chocolate fan for breakfast though--I love pancakes for a little snack during the day too! I am just cleaning the house this weekend and preparing for all my fam to come!!

Krista said...

This weekend will be a busy one - dinner tonight for my MIL's birthday, wedding for hubby's co-worker tomorrow, Christmas Concert at church Sunday morning and our Children's Christmas drama on Sunday night. And somehwere in there I need to clean up the house.
