For the Love of Pancakes
I love pancakes. Who doesn’t love pancakes!?
As a teenager I remember using about half of a box for a about 2 pancakes on a single breakfast. The pancakes were huge and delicious….Those were the days….
But, As you can imagine, that’s not such a good idea when you are on a fitness journey. All that unbleached flour and fillers don’t bring in the gains or are health friendly. I thought I would never eat pancakes again.
But that changed one day at the grocery store. “Whole Wheat Pancakes?” I asked myself.
I read the ingredients label. A looot of shit I can’t even pronounce. Still, I was very excited to try them. The flavor wasn’t bad. I actually enjoyed them. But I couldn’t get past all of those damn ingredients. So, I stopped eating them.
The next step was to go on the internet and find some homemade recipes. Some were delicious, but not very healthy. Others were healthy but dry and flavorless. Jesus! All I wanted were some damn pancakes!
So I said “fuck it” and decided to try my own.
And I’m glad to tell you I got the healthiest, nutrient packed pancakes in the history of pancakes.
There’s no more dry and flavorless pancakes in my life. These are full of flavor and full of mother fucking gains!
