That, my friends, is pumpkin kodiak cakes topped with pumpkin PB and berry syrup. And they are fantastical. Macros are as good as they taste too.
The hubs and I did our part earlier this week ✔and voted early. He wanted a picture of just his sticker on his chest though LOL good thing my Olive Marie always loves a pic ❤ and this is proof I am not always in gym clothes with my hair in a ponytail haha!
My grocery store finally got in more Halo Top Creamery flavors! My sis-in-law JUST told me that I need to try strawberry since it is her favorite; so, I go by the store last night and BOOM! She was right! Yum and love those macros, like always!
Been a bit since I broke a personal record. I am on the last week of a 12 week cutdown and some days, I try but I just don't have it in me. HOWEVER today I hit 250 lbs on my 1 rep max for hip thrust. Best yet! Photoshoot is ONE week from today and cannot wait to see my progress since last year! ✔🍑 hoping for booty-ful ;) ha!
Here is a way to ante up your lateral lunge AKA side lunge- add a weight and a bench. This makes it a weighted deficit lateral lunge, and I bet your inner thighs will be sore the next day ;)
Soooo back to the recipe... we recently bought a HUGE box of Kodiak Cakes mix. This stuff is amazing all by itself with water.
Since it is open season on pumpkin and all things pumpkin spice, I thought I would try a pumpkin bent on them! (...And then I ran out of pumpkin from all my pumpkin antics in the kitchen, need to go get more STAT because I am already needing some more of these!)
Kodiak Pumpkin Protein Pancakes with Pumpkin PB and Berry SyrupServes 1
0.25 cup Kodiak Cakes - Power Cakes mix
1 large Egg
1 tbsp Peanut butter
0.5 cup Frozen Mixed Berries (126g)
0.75 cup Pumpkin Puree, divided
0.33 cup water
0.25 tsp pumpkin spice
In a mixing bowl, mix together the Kodiak mix, 1 egg, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and water until smooth. Put a small skillet on the stove over medium, and make 2-3 pancakes with the mix.
While the pancakes are cooking, take 0.5 cup of fresh or frozen mixed berries and heat them until they form a syrup. I did mine in the microwave for 1 minute from frozen and stirred in a little stevia to sweeten.
In a small bowl, mix 0.25 cup of pumpkin puree with the tbsp of peanut butter until smooth. I added a smidge of pumpkin spice and stevia too.
Top your pumpkin pancakes with the pumpkin PB and berry syrup. Enjoy :)
