Today was great for 3 reasons:
1. It was an absolutely gorgeous autumn day!! I spent 23 miles biking the fall country side. Ahhh…. sigh.
2. It is the start of my birthday week. I do love birthdays… and not just mine.
3. After sleeping in, I made pumpkin pie protein pancakes.
The perfect pre-bike ride breakfast on a perfect fall day.
I used the same mix that I used to make the Almond Meal Pancakes. This time I only used the mix and didn’t add any other flour. Add in a little pumpkin to the mixture, pumpkin pie spice, and a scoop of vanilla protein powder… voila!!!!
Easy, quick, fall, pumpkin goodness on my plate.
I am finally mastering the cast iron griddle too- far less burning and much more golden brown awesome-ness!
I even added some chocolate to my last one- also tasty, but there is only so much sweet I can handle at a time.
I topped these pumpkin bites with real maple syrup and a mix of jumbo raisins. Raisins are an excellent pre-workout food and since I knew I had a medium sized bike ride in my future, I added those into the mix.
I really wish I had a picture of my bike today, but I left my phone in the car and just rode. Sometimes silence away from technology is golden.
