occasionally i slip back into some not-so-great eating habits, but when i am in the habit of eating healthy, i start to look forward to treats that are good for me. namely, fruit
the promise of a banana and WHOLE TABLESPOON of peanut butter after a workout is half of the reason i go to the gym in the first place
waking up in the morning knowing i get to have fruit with cottage cheese gets me out of bed so fast
these types of treats are good for you, tasty, and won’t leave you craving more sugar - 100% satisfaction

i adapted the recipe from my favorite food blog The Healthy Foodie
2. Coat a non-stick pan with cooking spray and heat it over medium heat. When the pan is hot enought, cook your pancakes one at a time until set and golden, about 1-2 minutes per side. I like to divide my batter into 3 small pancakes, but you may choose to make one large, 2 medium or 3 small pancakes, whatever works for you.
helllooo perfect pancake
3. I ate all three and topped with the blueberry sauce and whipped cream. These pancakes are to die for
