Sweet Potato Oat Bran Pancakes

the stuff:

  • 3/4 cup dry oat bran
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla cashew milk
  • 2 egg whites (from real eggs, not the carton)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup roasted, soft sweet potato
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 packets granulated stevia (optional)
  • dash sea salt

do this: 

  1. set griddle to high and coat with no stick cooking spray
  2. add egg whites into high powered blender and ‘whip’ them for about 30-45 seconds until super fluffy (we received a Ninja Blender from our dear friend Diamond this past Christmas and i have been using it every single week since then!)
  3. 20150630_200537-01-1
  4. add in everything else!
  5. blend oh high speed for at least 1 minute until super smooth
  6. let batter sit for approx. 5 minutes. oat bran is suuuuper absorbent and will need a few moments to do its thing
  7. spoon batter onto griddle (make as many cakes as you’d like; the size is your call)
  8. when you see bubbles start to form on the top of the cake (approx. 3 min), flip!  (ensure the color is golden brown and not pale)
  9. cook an additional 2-3 min on this side
  10. top with pecans and powdered sugar and your fave sugar-free syrup! we use Walden Farms.
nutritional facts for the entire stack: 363 cals, 11g fat, 71g carbs, 21g protein, 10g sugar

neeeext, i get asked about my wide headband often and i finally answered with deets on IG recently. it’s a @firstlinebrands Dri Sweat Edge and boy do i wear it often. it absorbs all my awesomeness (sweat) and keeps everything beneath it nice and dry (dem edges).

  1. My favorite cardio is jump roping. Very basic but it does so much for me. I love the variety of jumps and speed I can control with a simple rope. It’s also a childhood memory of mine, I use to be known as the jump roper in my family and on the streets so can’t beat that. I just truly enjoy what it does to my legs and the adrenaline it gives me as I accelerate the speed. Also it sounds pretty cool. Lol

  2. Just pinned this on pinterest (that counts right??)

    My favorite cardio is running outside just because I can immediately see my progress-sweat and distance. An outside minute is MUCH shorter than a treadmill minute any day!

  3. My chiropractor said the best workout is jumping on a trampoline! He said it is great for getting those lymph glands moving and it’s great for toning everything!

    Does anyone know why toenails fall off if you’re a runner? Our daughter loses the nail next to her big toe twice a year and she is thinking of giving it up.

  4. Favorite cardio: dancing and kickboxing. Dancing because it’s something so natural I can do it anywhere, anytime, (well almost) and at any intensity. I randomly coax my husband to start dancing with me; I dance with my children quite often; I love the MJ Experience on Wii, the list goes on. I keep it moving – literally. Kickboxing is awesome especially with using weights. I feel like such bad mamajama afterwards! My instructor changes the moves up so it’s always an interesting class. Thanks for reading!
