Day 25 : Weight Watchers 1Pt Pancakes

Some days you just want breakfast for dinner and today was one of those days for us.  I guess it makes sense since we had leftover pizza for breakfast lol.  Seriously though, there are so many great breakfast foods/recipes and not enough weekend mornings to enjoy them.  If your week is anything like ours there is just no time on a work day to have homemade breakfast so that leaves us breakfast for dinner!

This is a recipe I discovered last year when on Weight Watchers, and ever since then it has been THE recipe I use for pancakes whether dieting or not.  I just love the light airy texture, the flavors, and best of all the  fact that I don’t have to feel guilty eating them!  You can top them with some fresh fruit, syrup, maybe a bit of yogurt, or even just butter if you like them plain like me.  If you find that your batter is a bit thick after mixing it just go ahead and add a little bit of water until you reach the proper consistency.

For today’s picture I had grand ideas of getting an action shot because I think they really make an image pop, but unfortunately things did not go quite as planned…. let’s just say my husband does not have a career in food photography or as photographer’s assistant lol.  You’ll have to settle for the shot just before the pour and let your imagination do the rest!

*Disclaimer…. this is based on the older points system and I am not sure how or if it would change on the new points plus system.
