I woke up too early this morning, so my brain is just going. Bare with me on this...
I did something a little different yesterday. I worked out without shoes on. Since I still did not have any DVR workouts, I worked out upstairs using the computer. I didn't do super high impact exercises, but I did a few high intensity intervals and some pilates for strength. I read about it a few places, but this
one and this
one seemed to have the most info I could find on the pros and cons. I have done this a couple of times before and I like the way my legs and feet feel afterwards. They are still feeling good today too! I was on carpet so I felt like it was a little easier on my feet. Have you heard of this and what do you think about it?
As for breakfast, I have gotten a lot of questions about the oatmeal peanut butter waffles. Which leads to my question in the end of this post...
This morning I made a new version of my oatmeal peanut butter waffle. I added a banana to the mix and used regular peanut butter since I have gotten a ton of questions from people who don't have peanut flour, wondering if it would work. As you can see, I make these using a very thick batter which is why this is kind of like a cookie.
These are thick, dense, crispy and chewy.
Because of this, a little goes a long way. Max is not a huge breakfast eater anyway, so he went with a wedge loaded with peanut butter, a sprinkle of powder sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Because I used peanut butter, I used less water and no sweetener. Also, I was asked about making these into pancakes. I would imagine it would work, but you may need to add a little more water depending on wether you are looking for dense pancakes or fluffy.
Banana Oatmeal Peanut Butter Waffles
1 cup oatmeal (quick cooking or rolled oats blended a little bit)
1 banana, mashed
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (or 1/4 cup peanut flour)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
8 TBSP water (or 12 TBSP if using peanut flour)
(2 TBSP sweetener of your choice if using flour)
Cook according to your machines directions.
Now for the question...if you use a different type of commenting program, what do you use? Obviously, with blogger, I can't respond to people personally unless I go to your site. I don't like this. I would like to be able to respond to everyone individually. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. What do you like, what do you not like?
I hope everyone has a great weekend...I hear fall should be here tomorrow!
