I take a rolling pin and crush the Crispy Cereal up in the unopened packet. Then I take 2 egg whites and I whip them up with my immersion blender whisk attachments (but that's optional). I mix in 1/2 tsp baking powder, the Crispy Cereal powder, and ~2-3 oz of water. You can also add in cinnamon, apple/pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, etc to get whatever flavor profile you crave.

Lately I've been shredding a half zucchini, squeezing out excess water using a paper towel and adding it in for an extra vegetable kick (I've also sauteed up the zucchini with a little WF Apple Butter for 'apple pancakes').

My favorite toppings are the WF Pancake Syrup and Rhubarb microwaved until mushy with some WF Strawberry Spread.

*This is my weekend treat I make every Saturday and Sunday when I have time to 'cook' my breakfast. And they are UNRESTRICTED! Make sure to note the 2 egg whites, most coaches allow them, they are low calorie and all protein.
