pancakes...a love story

"Maybe we can sleep in
Make you banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now...."


I don't know about you but I can't eat banana pancakes with out singing Jack Johnson....

One of our favorite weekend rituals is to have a big Sunday morning breakfast; and I would be lying if I said I haven't made these pancakes for the past couple weekends in a row.  Topped with bananas, whipped cream, and a pinch of cinnamon is my favorite, while Chris prefers his topped with strawberries; but honestly, topped with anything or nothing at all and I will still devour the entire stack.

To fuel my [obsessive] craving for pancakes I've had as of late, I bought a healthy, whole wheat-organic pancake mix at Whole Foods.  The pancakes are deliciously filling, healthy, and a great way to fuel up for a long run.

Other than banana topped, we have tried them topped with: pecans & maple syrup, a berry mixture [black, straw, & blue] and when I just can't hold out anymore I will give in and top them with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips & walnuts! le sigh.

Hoping to experiment and add a little pumpkin puree to the mix during the cooler months to collide my latest obsession [pancakes] with my true passion [Fall].

I find it funny, I was never one for pancakes before I started running, but now I just can't seem to get enough; of the pancakes and the running.

So tell me, are you a pancake lover? and how do you eat yours?

xo.
