Long Run Pancake / Waffles

After a long run, I’m always starving.  I categorize a long run as 13 plus miles.  Generally my long runs are done early Sunday mornings.  One of my favorite things to make are Pancakes / Waffles.  I’ve always made homemade pancakes.  I’ve used a “Good Old Fashioned Pancakes” recipe for years.  The original recipe calls for white flour, white sugar, milk and melted butter.  I’ve eliminated all of those items and made them into my own gluten free, no white sugar and sometimes vegan Pancakes.  They are so good!  There’s really no reason to make them the unhealthy way ever again….

Muffins passed the taste test!

After a lot of configuration, I think I nailed this batch of muffins!  Every time I make them, I seem to take a slightly different approach.  So the goal is to make them as healthy as possible, but of course, still taste great!  My tasters (husband, Mother in law) gave them a big thumbs up!  Very happy about that.  My Thursday morning running partner (Rachael) will try them tomorrow! Fingers crossed she loves them. 

As mentioned yesterday, the muffins are Vegan & Gluten free.  I also use no white sugar.  This batch was sweetened with bananas, granny smith apple, carrots, molasses and raisins.  I used brown rice flour and I make a flax seed egg.  Anyhow, I will post the actual recipe and variations further down the line.  I find these to be great after an intense work out, like a long run or bike ride.  I put fresh ground nut butter on top for extra protein to help my muscles recover.
