I am going to write all of the "new to me" recipes down and keep them in one book in the kitchen. More likely to use them if they are handy. I really like making granola and oatmeal cookies, too. Then again, I like the oatmeal A LOT, so.....
I had a hard time fitting in all my 'green', so I took a cup of spinach and cut it into little bits and shook it with 1 packet of scrambled eggs. I sprayed a pan with cooking spray, and cooked the eggs to just before they got rubbery, then plated them and added about a third of a wedge of the French Onion Light Laughing Cow cheese.
Probably the best scrambled eggs I've ever eaten, even better than some omelets I've made in the past! I didn't use the cheese as a topping, but rather took a bit onto my fork before grabbing some egg. The cheese doesn't seem to melt too well.
I tried this Basic Shake Cake recipe today, but used the strawberry shake mix. It was awesome! I will try banana next time. Thanks for posting.

Mix ingredients in a bowl. It will be a thick batter. smooth it out flat to cover the bottom of the bowl. The bottom of the bowl will be the size of your cake. it comes out more like a thick pancake. I microwave mine for 1 minute but I have a wimpy microwave. You can play with the ingredient amounts until you get a consistency you like. Some recipes have more egg beaters, up to 2 to 3 tbsp, I just use more water to save on the lean and stay OP.
For the "cinnabon" version add
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Definitely makes for a nice change from shakes all the time. Banana shakes made for a really nice cake.

I have a question - When I mixed the medifast pancake mix with 1/4 cup of water, I was able to make 1 (one) approx. 4" pancake. However, the package states that it should make at least three. Is it me?
