Cooking and Running… they go hand in hand

Standard

Today, I was reminded by a fellow blogger that part of the joy of running is getting to eat… a LOT!!!! Something that I LOVE is baked goods. Over the years, I have created healthy alternatives to otherwise considerably sinful delights, and will be posing them sporadically… starting with…. my favorite “after long run treat” while the recipe is fat free… I DO EAT THIS WITH EGGS simply because the body NEEDS the necessary fats!

FAT FREE/ GLUTEN FREE BANANA BREAD PANCAKES!!!

1 cup Brown Rice Flower (or spelt flour)

1 cup rolled oats (or sprouted grain flour)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 pinch of salt

1/2 cup mashed and over ripe banana

1/4 cup apple sauce

2 free range egg whites

1 cup non fat milk (or nonfat soy milk)

1 and 1/2 tbs sunsweet lighter bake

In a food processor (or blender) process oats (if that is your selection of flour) until a flour like consistency. place into a bowl with the brown rice flour, baking soda, and salt and mix. In a separate bowl,whip egg whites until meringue-like peaks form and add mashed banana, apple suace, milk, and sunsweet lighter bake. then, slowly mix in flour mixture. Heat up your griddle, spray w/ non fat cooking spray and place 1/2 cup mix to cook… alow to get golden on both sides and… serve! For added flavor, top w/ 100% maple syrup, sliced bananas, and walnuts!

ENJOY!
