Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Sunday evening and the weekend has sped by yet again. *sob* Anyway, we started off the day sweetly with the chocolate chip pancakes from The Most Decadent Diet. Mine are pictured above with the called for single tsp of maple syrup, dd's have considerably MORE syrup looking at the picture. lol.

Anyway, they were good. It worked out to 4 points for 2 pancakes. It called for the oat flour again ( like the Godiva brownies from the same cookbook ), which I again grinded using my coffee grinder. The cookbook's author, Devin Alexander, makes of point of using mini chocolate chips, so it seems like more. They did seem, overall, pretty chocolaty and pretty easy to make, though you have to pause in the middle of it to let the batter sit for 10 mins. ( Not a problem for us as everyone was doing something else while I was making them. ) The recipe calls for 2 mins of cookin' on each side- mine were pretty brown after 1 minute on each, so I cut it down a bit.

In exercise news, I did manage to get my lazy ar*se downstairs for a bit of a workout: DDR2 dancing. I try to do it for about an hour- if I have the time- and keep bouncing around in between songs. Luckily no flies are on my basement walls and the spiders are not talking.

I am thinking of cracking out a few video exercise tapes this week to supplement my working out. Fitness Fig is inspiring me to get back into that home video tape groove again. I preordered a few tapes and picked up a hilarious punk aerobics book from the library. I will share if I manage to bust a few moves with them.
Have sweet Sunday night dreams!
