My children, well the older two, now have morning swim practices…. My son has to be at the pool at 5:30 am two days a week.. I live 15 to 20 min away. So we have to be awake at 4:45 to get him there.. Ok, we could wake up at 5:00 but then he would be swimming without food. My daughter wants to swim for the High School girls team… That practice is at 5:00 am M-F so we are now practicing getting up early.. I woke her up at 6:00 am yesterday. Her response “What time is it and why am I awake?” She thinks 6:00 is early wait until it’s 4:30. Did I mention they practice in DIFFERENT pools!
So I have started waking up early… in some ways it’s nice. I get the whole house to myself. I can work out early. Blog, check email, drink coffee, feed the sourdough. Which is when I realize we need to make some pancakes. Luckily, this is a day where they are getting up and I don’t actually have to take them anywhere. We are just getting our bodies used to it. Anyway, back to sourdough… Also on the counter is Peanut Butter powder….hmmm peanut butter pancakes???
I wake up daughter. How about Peanut butter pancakes? “Yum she says..” Son stumbles out of his room… “Peanut butter pancakes?” I ask…. “Yum he says on the way to the shower.” So far, they don’t have enough peanut butter powder… So I am adding more.
Peanut Butter Pancakes
2 cups sourdough starter
2TBS honey or sugar
2 large scoops approx 4 T (or more of Peanut Butter powder – one scoop was not enough)
1 scoop of plain whey protein (this is optional… I sneak it in where I can)
After the second scoop of Peanut Butter powder we got a mild peanut flavor. It probably needs more. It will have to experiment with it further…. but it wasn’t a bust. The older two are scarfing them down…
