You don't eat pancakes for the protein.


So, the other night I got this craving for pancakes. At 9 pm - and the closest grocery/Walmart open this late is 25 minutes away. We had the pancake mix, the syrup, and even some chocolate chips! But, no eggs or milk. So, what's a girl to do?

I took it upon myself to search for a recipe where I could make eggless, milkless pancakes - all the while trying to think of a way to pressure poor hubby into making the run to the grocery so I could satisfy this horrid craving. And, in my search results I came upon the oh-so-helpful Yahoo Answers - where everyone is an expert (yeh in bull...sorry). Anyways...

The question was (someone else had asked): Can you make pancakes without eggs?

I began getting hopeful. Oh good! 15 replies! And then I started reading them...

Buttermilk. Right. I don't have milk OR eggs genius...why would I have buttermilk?

Use a mix. Thanks genius. Already doing that and it wants milk and eggs. Should I add a different pancake mix to my grocery list too?

....and my favorite reply?....

"
Yes...but why deny yourself the protein?"

Wait a minute...who in the dickens eats pancakes when they are concerned about protein? I mean, sheesh. Kinda like you don't eat brownies for the dairy. Duh.

Okay, okay...so if you were wondering...I did have my pancakes.

To make egg-less, milk-less pancakes, you just add 2 c. of pancake mix and 1 1/3 c. water. You can add a little more pancake mix after that to thicken it. I couldn't really tell a difference. But, then again...I had chocolate chips and peanut butter....

I always buy the mix that calls for water only because of the milk guzzler we have in our house. I can always find water. :-) I actually had pancakes w/peanut butter and syrup on Saturday. You know what they say about GREAT MINDS........

We also only get the easy mix where you only have to add water. I invariably run out of eggs every time I want to bake. I need to find a recipe for eggless cookies!

PS- people are wierd. :)

I guess that means you don't have flax seeds around to replace the eggs. Ha! Just being a smart aleck.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I love your Easter egg ideas (on tomorrow's post).
