Being surrounded with intelligent business savvy women makes for a very motivating environment. I want everyone I encounter to win! When I heard about the successes my Cousin-In-Law was having transitioning into a healthier lifestyle; I wanted her to contribute to MomLifeManual.com. Below is a delicious and healthy pancake recipe made with Arbonne products.

What I’ve learned along the way was that how I was eating wasn’t properly fueling my body. I was not as healthy as I could and should be. I’m not rocking a six-pack (extra stretched out postpartum belly anyone?), but I FEEL amazing! I don’t have to a “mombie” anymore. The fact that I look and feel better at 35 than I did at 25 is amazing by itself, but the best part is that I’m creating healthy habits for my children that will set them up to be healthier and happier adults.
Now, onto the fun stuff! Let’s talk about FOOD! Who doesn’t like pancakes on a Saturday morning?? Most pancakes are gluten and sugar bombs that will make anyone crash an hour later. How do we create a sweet morning treat that fills you up rather than make you tank? I was so happy to come across this Arbonne recipe, which I have tweaked a little to satisfy even the sweetest tooth. It has become a weekend staple in my home, and I make enough each weekend to last my son through the week since my hubby won’t cook, and I leave for work well before he wakes up.
READY IN: 15-20 mins
SERVES: 6-9 Pancakes
*Trying to figure out when to flip these pancakes is more difficult than normal pancakes because these pancakes won’t bubble up like regular ones will.
Use coconut oil instead of butter to make this dairy-free. You can top pancakes, with either 100% pure maple syrup or agave nectar. My kids prefer chocolate chip pancakes with no syrup, but they’ll opt for a touch of syrup if they don’t have chocolate chips. I prefer mine with an abundance of blueberries, so I don’t have to use any syrup at all.
Happy (and healthy) Eating!
