Ok, here’s the deal. Pancakes are awesome, but only if you are planning to head out and use a bunch of energy. If you deal with carbs well, have at it. But if fat loss is your thing, only enjoy Pregame Pancakes before your hardest workouts. They are high in carbohydrates because of the flour. Because we use multigrain flour, it’s not as high on the glycemic scale (doesn’t digest as fast), but it’s still almost all carbs.
The blueberries add some valuable antioxidants to keep your body from breaking down, and the pecans add just enough monounsaturated fat to give you the benefits without weighing you down or slowing digestion too much.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup rolled oats (Holiday’s doesn’t add the oats, but I like them at home)
1/4 cup cornmeal (same here, Holiday’s doesn’t add this)
3 tbsp brown sugar
1tsp baking powder
3 tbsp of nut oil (almond, peanut, coconut)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup milk
1 cup blueberries
1 cup chopped pecans
- Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl
- Mix eggs, oil, yogurt, milk in a large bowl and add dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
- Drop 1/3 cup scoops on a hot griddle or cast iron skillet and drop a few blueberries and pecans on top. Flip when the top bubbles and the bottom is golden brown
- Enjoy with butter and syrup or topped with yogurt.
