No Syrup Needed Pancakes

Chocolate? Check. Bananas? Check. Blueberries? Check. Actually pretty good for you? Check. These are so good and so easy. The kids ate them without any syrup or butter or anything! They just picked them up and ate... and ate, ate, and ate! Next time, I am going to double the recipe so I can have some to freeze for later! I got this recipe of a great website I go to for easy and healthy meals: Check it out! So here we go:

*Mash up 2 bananas in a fairly big bowl.
*Add in 1 cup of chocolate soy milk and 2 eggs

*Mix until frothy (that's a fun word, isn't it?)

*In a smaller bowl combine 1.5 cups whole wheat, 1 tsp baking powder, 1tsp baking soda, and 1 tsp cinnamon.

*Sift your dry mixture into your wet mixture.

*Mix until just combined. Batter will be lumpy

*Spoon batter onto a hot griddle.

*Top batter with desired amount of blueberries.

*Flip pancakes when they start to bubble and get brown on the bottom

*This recipe made about 12 medium sized pancakes which was BARELY enough for us :)

World's Easiest Cookies

A pretty bold statement, I know! These cookies only have 4 ingredients and take maybe 15 minutes total to make. Here is what you need:

* You can use any kind of cake mix that you want. I used lemon this time, but I have also used strawberry and chocolate. All turned out really good!
* Preheat over to 350

* Mix together 1 egg, 1 tub of whipped cream, and 1 box of any kind of cake mix.

* It will be super sticky and look like this:

* Put some powdered sugar in a bowl or on a plate and drop teaspoonfulls of this batter into it.

* Roll the batter around until it is covered in powdered sugar.

*Place on a greased cookie sheet. These will expand so leave some room between cookies!

*Bake for about 10-12 minutes. You don't want to over bake them.

*When they come out they will be all nice and chewy! Yum-o!
