Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! Hopefully you’re celebrating in whatever way makes you happy, whether it be in the gym, at the beach, on the couch or in the backyard barbecuing and lighting off fireworks. Me-thinks I’ll be cooking up a storm today and then enjoying a little BBQ tomorrow 🙂
So this here pancake roll-up was inspired by something I saw on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I seem to be drawing a lot of inspiration from that show lately, even if you don’t get to see it all 😉 This one is from Pete’s Breakfast House in Ventura, CA. You can get the recipe for the real thing here, but I went sans granola and added protein because I’m basically obsessed with it, plus I had to make it more macro friendly. Also because ‘MERICA.
Now, normally I include the nutrition info for exactly what you see on the plate because I don’t like to do you dirty like that (unlike some bloggers who say “oh, chocolate chips are optional but highly encouraged because otherwise this will taste like crap. But I didn’t include them in the nutrition info, because they’re so optional”). Okay, I’m off my soap box now. But anyway, I added some extra Greek yogurt on top because it’s pretty…but I actually couldn’t even eat the extra yogurt because this thing is already filling enough! You could totally cut the recipe in half if you’re not into a big breakfast.
