💓-y Pancakes

Ready to eat! Experimenting with different flours for my 💓-y Pancake mixture. Today, it was the best I have ever made. I didn't take a picture, but it was picture perfect! I will use my written recipe for tomorrow's pancake and see how close I was to throwing things in! Will update this blog!

💓-y- Banana Nut Bread

💓-y  Banana Nut Bread 💓-y Banana Nut Bread is now my favorite to make! Healthier version than I usually bake. I substituted the white sugar with honey, egg whites for the whole egg, and plain Greek yogurt for the butter. The bread is moist, and the texture is firm.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Smash those bananas in a bowl and add 1/2 c. of plain non-fat, or low-fat Greek yogurt while mixing it all. Mix well with the honey, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and egg whites. Add 1 cup
