The Best (Cookies & Cream) Protein Pancakes Ever

Not only is today Hump Day, but it’s also, “so much goodness in this post” day. Now that’s my kind of day!

I think you will like this little recipe that I have for you. I gave it to several of the girls that work with my coach and they said it was awesome.

the best cookies and cream protein pancakes

These are so good that I had them for dessert on Saturday, post-Foam Fest race on Sunday, and dinner on Monday and yesterday. My parents were even watching my every bite on Monday. This is parent, coach, and best friend approved.

Monday nights batch was made with the Quest bar in it, but honestly, it didn’t do much, except make the pancakes look extra decadent. Otherwise, you really couldn’t notice the bar in it. So word to the wise (unless you’re rich), skip the Quest bar.

So good! Honestly the best thing that I have ever eaten in almost my entire life.

Something else that’s awesome? This. Yesterday’s lunch.

My lovely egg white pizza with veggies.

Thank goodness for summer dresses because I totally bloated like a mofo after this one. Anyone else wear dresses solely on days you feel heavy or predominately during the week your favorite Aunt Flow is in town? Ayyyyyyy.

There’s a new workout in town that I’m l-l-l-l-l-loving. The 7 minute workout. My coworker Jen introduced me to it on Monday and I went home to my parents and completed 2 rounds after a 1.3 mile neighborhood run in the 93* heat.

In the workout, there are 12 exercises that you complete for :30 seconds each, with a :10 second rest in between. You can complete as many rounds as you’d like, but the recommended is 3 rounds. The exercises include jumping jacks, squats, crunches, lunges, plank, side plank, push-ups, walking push-ups, tricep dips, step-ups, high-knees, and wall sits.7-minute-workout

I definitely felt the burn on this baby! I’m even going to do it again after work today! It’s great if you’re traveling and have no access to a gym, or need a quick mid-day work pick me up.

I’m having a lovers quarrel with my Garmin. It yells at me when I’m behind/ahead/or on pace. Geez, pick only one to yell at me for! It’s extra rude when it yells at me when I’m behind pace as I’m running a hill. It should just be happy I’m running it and not walking the damn hill. Ugh, what an annoying guy.

Last Night

Last night Jen and I thought it’d be smart to play tennis in the 90* heat. We don’t always think before we do things, but gossip tennis was much-needed and it was so great catching up with her!

After tennis I had more pancakes because I’m addicted.

The only thing getting me through this work day is knowing that I get to have my daily batch of cookies & cream protein pancakes for dinner tonight.

Where was the best stack of pancakes you’ve ever had?

Fruity pancakes or decadent chocolate chip pancakes?

Chocolate chip all the way!

    I’m. Drooling.

    I’m too lazy to make pancakes myself, so send some over to me, will you? 😛

    Also, that workout looks killer. Basically all of the moves I have a love/hate relationship with. Especially the push-up with rotation…push-ups are hard enough. o.0
