Lazy Weekend

I love lazy Sunday mornings.

There is nothing better than waking up late and staying in your pajamas until noon.


After drinking a pot of coffee, my tummy started grumbling.

“Feeeed Meeee!”

I checked the cupboards and found the ingredients for my newest concoction.

Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Pancakes

Makes 14-15 pancakes

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 3 cups pancake mix
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 2 packets instant oatmeal
  • 2 cups of water


  1. Preheat griddle to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the pancake mix, protein powder and oatmeal together in a large bowl.
  3. Slowly add water, mixing with a fork or whisk to break up the mixture.
  4. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop mixture onto hot griddle.
  5. Let pancakes heat and bubble through, flip.
  6. Allow opposite side to turn golden brown, remove from griddle, and enjoy!


Here’s what I started with… A big bowl of white flour.


I thought to myself, “I’ve got to be able to do better than this!”


Add in some oats.


And what not a little chocolate protein powder, eh?


Heat them babies up!






Quick ‘n easy. Just delicious! ย And with a enough rib-sticking-power to keep me going all morning and into the afternoon!

Now that’s what I call a pancake!

No butter or syrup needed.

Ate three each and froze the rest.

Krusteaz ain’t got nothin’ on me. ๐Ÿ™‚
