Pomegranate Pancakes

This morning I woke up determined to get out on my bike.

It’s been way too long since I took good ole’ RED out for a spin. In fact, the last time I rode  was with Kelly on our crazy 50 mile adventure!

My bike has been sitting on the patio so lonely. I spent part of yesterday afternoon fixing the tubes and reattaching the chain.

I rode a typical running route..

It felt so good to get outside. The weather is in the mid-low seventies, and it feels amazing!

It was a leisurely bike ride:

  • Distance: 10.0 miles
  • Time: 42:49
  • Average Speed: 14.0 miles/hour
  • Average HR: 146 bpm

Before I left, I ate a quick snack:

When I returned, I made a REAL breakfast. I saw Caitlin make pomegranate pancakes, and I have been dying to try them!

We’re all out of eggs, so I decided to give the “flax egg” a try.

For one egg:

  • 1 TBL Flax
  • 3 TBL Warm Water

Mix!! It was so easy, and I couldn’t even tell a difference in the taste of the pancakes (although I’m used to flax).

I mixed the pomegranates into the batter, poured them onto the skillet…

…and let them do their pancake thing.

I enjoyed four pancakes out on the patio, with maple syrup on top. 😀

Chomp. The pomegranate arils added a nice crunch!

Off to work on school stuff again today! I’m working hard this weekend, so I can have fun in New Jersey next weekend!

Happy Sunday!
